Subject SV: SoapSampler deprecation ?
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 08:24:01 GMT
And here are my 2 cents.

I use it because it provides a nicer looking and easier to use interface in the GUI, and I
have not found/seen any bug which others seems have.

I do however agree with Sebb that it could be deprecated in the manual to indicate that it
is no longer maintained, because as I understand the code (soap.jar) cannot be found anymore.
This is not the same as removing it so as long as it, in its current form, is compatible with
JMeter I believe it should stay in.

Regards, Carsten.

It is also quite inefficient compared with the other HTTP samplers.

I agree we should deprecate it, but I would just leave the code there for people to use if
they want.
The docs should be updated to say it is end of life.
We then need not make any further bug fixes or improvements.
