Dynamic forms w/ Jmeter

Rob Butler-2
Hello all,

I am attempting to perf test a web app with jmeter, but I don't know how
to solve a particular issue I am running into.

One particular page in the app can return a dynamic number of rows of
data.  The number of rows is dependent upon the individual user's
information in a DB.  There is no way of knowing ahead of time how many
rows there are.

What I would like to do is capture (using regex's) the form data that is
returned in the response, and use that as the parameters to the next
request.

Using the Regular Expression Extractor I can easily get all the data and
field names as a list of capture groups.  The problem is, how do I then
dynamically build the parameters that will be used in the next request?
In the HTTP Request sampler I can put a field name, and use a dynamic
value, but that won't do what I need.  I need to use dynamic field names
and dynamic values in the request.  Is this possible?  How do I do it?

Thanks
Rob

Have you looked at the ForEach Controller?

Re: Dynamic forms w/ Jmeter

Rob Butler-2
Yes, I have.  My understanding of the ForEach controller is that it will
execute a separate HTTP Request sample for each entry in a RegEx list.
That will not do what I need.  I need to submit *one* request that
contains all the name/value pairs that I collected.  Is there an alternate
means of using the ForEach controller to do that?

If so, could you explain in detail how to use the ForEach controller in
that manner, because the docs and wiki samples I have read were not clear
at all on doing that.

Thanks again!
Rob

If I understand you right, you need a foreach construct within the HTTP
Sampler's argument list.  That would be a very useful thing, I think,
but right now, JMeter doesn't do anything like that.

Re: Dynamic forms w/ Jmeter

Michael Stover
If it's any consolation, I'd be hard put to come up with a more useful
single improvement to JMeter right at this moment.  What that means is
that, if my current employer ever requires me to do serious work with
JMeter, I'll probably implement it. :-)

Re: Dynamic forms w/ Jmeter

Rob Butler-2
If you do implement this, I think it might be easy to do as a
pre-processor.   That way it can add the params from the context vars
before the request is sent.

So a RegEx post-processor would collect the vars, and then the
pre-processor would plug em into the next request.  I don't *need* this
now, because my app is only going to have 10 rows max, so I can just build
it to handle up to 10 rows statically.  Otherwise, I'd build the
pre-processor now.  I bet it wouldn't be too hard.

I would agree with that strategy.  In fact, it's not so different from
what the HTML Link Parser does currently.
