One one of them I may use one Xpath assertions, on the other I may use
different Xpath assertions. Similarly, on some of them I may have different
Response assertions. In essence these are different test cases for testing
same Web Service.

I want to pass a variable or a parameter to each sampler, where the variable
names are the same, but the values are not. I was thinking that having
pre-processor for each sampler where I have user param and I assign it a
different value will take care of this.

    -Sampler 1
        - pre-processor
            - User Parameters
                param: name_a   value_1
                           name_b ......
            - XPath assertion 1
     -Sampler 2
        - pre-processor
            - User Parameters
                param: name_a   value_2
                           name_c ........
           - Response Assertion 1
           - Xpath assertion 2

Another reason why I'm trying to avoid CSV I'm part of a large group and we
are trying to minimize dependencies on external files as much as possible,
since our code is shared. Also, my test scripts are going to be executed by
manual testers and automated scripts, and manual testers and developers
prefer to change the values of variables if they need inside the testcase
itself (inside JMeter).
 My question is I guess, besides CSV, is this a way to set params to a
Sampler, or should I use Config Element (User Defined Variables).
