Subject Re: Handling File Download Window
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 16:53:46 GMT
various possibilities
a. If your file is a static file , possibly the URL is wrong. If you copy
the URL form Jmeter and paste it directly into a browser(new instance , all
cookies cleared, do you see the file?)
b. If your file is a dynamically generated PDF , then are all the parameters
etc being posted to it correctly?
c. If your file needs you to be logged in in order to download the file, is
your session/authentication setup correctly in JMeter?
d. Do all your previous steps execute correctly (i.e you have good
assertions on all your previous pages and all of them have passed)
