Subject Re: Recording SOAP requests
Date Wed, 15 Dec 2004 00:36:33 GMT
Recording anything but normal HTTP requests is not supported by the
current recording proxy server.  However, making your own plugin to do
the recording for you is not out of reach.

Essentially, what you can do is is create new copies of the classes in
the org.apache.jmeter.protocol.http.proxy package to a new package and
modify them to create WebServiceSamplers instead of HTTPSamplers.  I'm
sure there are many gotchas you'll encounter if you try to do this, but
we're here to help you through it, if you want to try.
