Hi Sebb,
Thanks for your email. I have logged all repsonse into a xml file but there is no error still. And I have tried an invalid path for the xml file on purpose and found that Jmeter complain about this issue. So I think if there is no complain it will mean that Jmeter is able to find the file.
By the way, do you have any examples for post response (.jmx file) that I can take a look and give it a shot ? 
Thank you very much

Looks OK.

Rather  odd.

Any errors in jmeter.log ? Perhaps the xml file could not be found?

You could add a "Save Responses to a File" Post-Processor - this will
store the exact responses from the server in case the Tree View is not
displaying things correctly.

Or you can use a proxy server or network sniffer to see what is happening.
