Subject Re: Problem with CSVRead and multithread
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 17:11:02 GMT

It seems you're having almost exactly the same problem I am!  I was wishing
for something similar to the CSV data set config element, except that would
allow each thread to have its own pointer.  No such thing exists.  I was
told beanshell would be a good solution to this.  Since I'm still learning
beanshell, I haven't gotten back to that point in my design yet, but I
currently intend to read the entire file into memory at startup and then it
can be randomly accessed.  I need more of a hashtable than a CSV data set
anyways.  I suspect, however, that because each thread has it's own instance
of the beanshell interpreter, it will load a copy of the file for each
thread - the only advantage of loading into memory (aside from lookup speed)
is that it will prevent file locking problems between threads (if there
would be any).  Good luck.
