Subject RE: Simple Data Writer in Jmeter 2.10+
Date Sun, 11 May 2014 21:53:31 GMT
I am using JDK 8 Update 5. 

The only plugins/extensions I am using are the Jmeter Plugins that include the "jp@gc Ultimate
Thread Group" - I'm having trouble finding where I originally sourced this from.

I've downgraded to Java 7 update 55 to see if that helps and if not will provide some more
information + screenshots (might take me a day or two as we have more pressing issues).

Hi Stephen,

I'm unable to reproduce your bug using 2.11 with java 1.7

I have setup a sdw as per the fol. screenshot:

And when executed from command line I get XML as expected.

Also don't believe the elements are re-ordered on close / open:

Do you have any custom plugins perhaps?

Perhaps check your file and make sure you are not setting the following
