Converting from the source xml (jmx) to DSL objects in Ruby could possibly
be a source of bugs. Using XML as an IDL seemed like the simplest way to
bridge two different components (Java & Ruby) at the time -- especially as
I wrote the original gem at a code camp / weekend ..

There might be smarter ways to do it the next time around. I think DSLs
should favour options/styles of the language they are written, and ideally
be made available in different languages - much the same as webdriver has
evolved. Perhaps what's missing is an API to drive JMeter itself.

The GUI is not so relevant for me anymore but I probably get more practice
writing and supporting tests written using the DSL for flood than is the

ViewResultsTree is hard to replace without some other form of proxy to
debug your DSL specs. I have been meaning to contribute a headless plugin
along those lines that helps debug request/response pairs etc ..
