Subject User defined variables
Date Sun, 07 Sep 2008 11:25:28 GMT


I think some of my early confusion with JMeter would have been avoided
if User Defined Variables were instead called User Defined Constants.
They do after all behave as constants rather than variables. Once their
value has been finally established during test plan initialization there
is no way to change them during test plan execution.  For clarity it
would probably be good if the GUI enforced the convention that UDVs only
be defined immediately under the test plan. Execution of individual test
plan elements in an order different from their physical placement order
is confusing.
