Subject Newbie question: How do you capture the URLs you test using jmeter?
Date Tue, 13 Jul 2004 14:23:33 GMT
Though I have lot's of experience with commercial test tools, I'm new to
jmeter (1 whole day of playing with it) so this is the first of what will
probably turn out to be a string of questions...anyone please feel free to
correct any misassumptions I may make.

Not sure how to expand the subject question without describing what I'm used
to, so I will.  I'm used to a capture mechanism that traces the http
requests made by a browser to create a script containing requests made to a
server.  The script contains one request per main page and the test software
automatically parses the reply to that request to make all necessary
subrequests, redirected requests, etc.

So I guess I really have two questions to start with:

How do most of you "capture" the requests you want to make, since in the
real-world things get complex very you use server logs, mostly?

Can someone give a pointer to a complex example of parsing a reply to build
a dynamic variablized request?  Just something I can look at to see what
steps are necessary.

Thanks in advance
