Subject Re: Testing asynchronous webservices
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 14:15:14 GMT

This applies in general (unfortunately):
If you want to have some smart way of doing the same stuff your client app
does, then you'll have to extend JMeter, which is rather easy, especially
if you already have the jars that implement the logic you need. Otherwise,
once you've configured the web-service sampler properly, the issues of
testing web-services are the same as in the case of any other apps.

Except: "AWS callback with info -> APP", I wouldn't know how to test this
in JMeter without extending it. Its not a behaviour I've encountered
before. The timeout works for responses to outgoing calls, but we're not
there yet with this requirement.

And because you made me curious, I googled a bit, found this:
they didn't had that problem, their challenge was similar to
what I expected, client initiated transactions and large response times in
some cases (the blog has some interesting ideas for you). Make sure you
really have to wait for a callback initiated by the server first (very few
systems use it). But if it does do that, would be nice of you to let us
know what solution you guys eventually picked.
