Class StandardGenerator

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.jmeter.protocol.http.util.accesslog.StandardGenerator
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Generator

public class StandardGenerator
extends Object
implements Generator, Serializable

Description:

StandardGenerator will be the default generator used to pre-process logs. It uses JMeter classes to generate the .jmx file. The first version of the utility only generated the HTTP requests as XML, but it required users to copy and paste it into a blank jmx file. Doing that way isn't flexible and would require changes to keep the format in sync.

This version is a completely new class with a totally different implementation, since generating the XML is no longer handled by the generator. The generator is only responsible for handling the parsed results and passing it to the appropriate JMeter class.

Notes:
the class needs to first create a thread group and add it to the HashTree. Then the samplers should be added to the thread group. Listeners shouldn't be added and should be left up to the user. One option is to provide parameters, so the user can pass the desired listener to the tool.

OUTPUT

protected transient OutputStream OUTPUT

FILENAME

FILE

protected File FILE
Constructor Detail

StandardGenerator

public StandardGenerator()
The constructor is used by GUI and samplers to generate request objects.


StandardGenerator

public StandardGenerator(String file)
Parameters:
file -
Method Detail

initStream

protected void initStream()
Create the FileWriter to save the JMX file.


close

public void close()
close the generator

Specified by:
close in interface Generator

setHost

public void setHost(String host)
The host is the name of the server.

Specified by:
setHost in interface Generator

setLabel

public void setLabel(String label)
This is the label for the request, which is used in the logs and results.

Specified by:
setLabel in interface Generator

setMethod

public void setMethod(String post_get)
The method is the HTTP request method. It's normally POST or GET.

Specified by:
setMethod in interface Generator

setParams

public void setParams(NVPair[] params)
Set the request parameters

Specified by:
setParams in interface Generator

setPath

public void setPath(String path)
The path is the web page you want to test.

Specified by:
setPath in interface Generator

setPort

public void setPort(int port)
The default port for HTTP is 80, but not all servers run on that port.

Specified by:
setPort in interface Generator
Parameters:
port - - port number

setQueryString

public void setQueryString(String querystring)
Set the querystring for the request if the method is GET.

Specified by:
setQueryString in interface Generator

setSourceLogs

public void setSourceLogs(String sourcefile)
The source logs is the location where the access log resides.

Specified by:
setSourceLogs in interface Generator

setTarget

public void setTarget(Object target)
The target can be either a java.io.File or a Sampler. We make it generic, so that later on we can use these classes directly from a HTTPSampler.

Specified by:
setTarget in interface Generator

generateRequest

public Object generateRequest()
The method is responsible for calling the necessary methods to generate a valid request. If the generator is used to pre-process access logs, the method wouldn't return anything. If the generator is used by a control element, it should return the correct Sampler class with the required fields set.

Specified by:
generateRequest in interface Generator

save

public void save()
save must be called to write the jmx file, otherwise it will not be saved.

Specified by:
save in interface Generator

reset

public void reset()
Reset the HTTPSampler to make sure it is a new instance.

The purpose of the reset is so Samplers can explicitly call reset to create a new instance of HTTPSampler.

Specified by:
reset in interface Generator
