Subject: Re: HTML link Parser question

There's a lot of things that could prevent this from working:

1.  Are you using JMeter 1.7.3 or a recent nightly?  JMeter 1.7 will not
work they way your 
test is described.

****I am using the latest nightly release.

2. Are the edits sent in req 2 a Form or an anchor link?  If a form, did you
make req2 use the 
POST method?  If a link, is it set to GET?

****It is a form and is I used the Post method.

3. Are some of the values and/or path of the form in req 2 set using
javascript that the HTML 
Link Parser can't parse?

****yes it does use javascript.

4.  Did you create this test by recording it or by writing it by hand?  If
by hand, you've most 
likely made a mistake somewhere - easier to record and modify afterward than
write by hand.

****it was recorded	

5.  When all else fails, you must examine the HTML response from req1 and
verify it contains 
the form or link and all the values you expect it to contain.  Javascript
and other funkiness can 
screw things up (but that doesn't mean there aren't ways around this).

****The response does seem to contain the values
