Have you thought of using xslt to parse the results for you?  If you are
using something like Tomcat, you can write a custom tag to merge the xml
results with a xslt stylsheet to have the results parsed for you.  You
can also look into using JSLT to handle the parsing of the xml document
via xslt.

Hope this helps,

Subject: ideas on extending jmeter


I'm looking for ideas on how to do something that right now, I believe I
have to extend JMeter to do.

After sending an XML request, I need to parse thousands of fields from
the XML returned by the server.  I believe that because of the numbers
it is unreasonable to use regular expressions to get these
values...especially since the number of fields will change.  I believe
it would be ideal if I could write a function or even a sampler to do
this.  The reason I'm thinking a sampler would be better is because
there are no functions that currently send requests (that I've seen).
I'm thinking either way would be possible, but I guess I'm looking for
an answer of how I should do this that is in line with how JMeter is
intended to be used.

If there is another way of doing this that I haven't considered, I'd
love to hear it!  Thanks for the help!
