Using JMeter RegEx for handling dynamic / generated URLs
April 16, 2007 Leave a comment
I recently contributed a section to the Wicket wiki on how to use JMeter’s Regular Expression support to test Wicket applications. Some of it should be useful for anyone having to test web applications where the URLs for hyperlinks and form submissions are dynamically generated and known only at runtime. For example, I used this technique earlier for testing an app using Spring WebFlow – so I was able to grab the value of the “_flowExecutionKey” parameter, which is typically a hidden form field.
