Class CompoundVariable

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class CompoundVariable extends Object implements Function
  • Constructor Details

    • CompoundVariable

      public CompoundVariable()
    • CompoundVariable

      public CompoundVariable(String parameters)
  • Method Details

    • execute

      public String execute()
    • getRawParameters

      public String getRawParameters()
      Allows the retrieval of the original String prior to it being compiled.
    • execute

      public String execute(SampleResult previousResult, Sampler currentSampler)
      Given the previous SampleResult and the current Sampler, return a string to use as a replacement value for the function call. Assume "setParameter" was previously called.

      This method must be thread-safe - multiple threads will be using the same object.

      Specified by:
      execute in interface Function
      previousResult - The previous SampleResult
      currentSampler - The current Sampler
      The replacement value, which was generated by the function
    • getFunction

      public CompoundVariable getFunction()
    • getArgumentDesc

      public List<String> getArgumentDesc()
      Return a list of strings briefly describing each parameter your function takes. Please use JMeterUtils.getResString(resource_name) to grab a resource string. Otherwise, your help text will be difficult to internationalize. This list is not optional. If you don't wish to write help, you must at least return a List containing the correct number of blank strings, one for each argument.
      Specified by:
      getArgumentDesc in interface Function
      List with brief descriptions for each parameter the function takes
    • clear

      public void clear()
    • setParameters

      public void setParameters(String parameters) throws InvalidVariableException
    • getFunctionClass

      public static Class<? extends Function> getFunctionClass(String className)
    • getFunctionNames

      public static String[] getFunctionNames()
    • hasFunction

      public boolean hasFunction()
    • getReferenceKey

      public String getReferenceKey()
      Return the name of your function. Convention is to prepend "__" to the name (ie "__regexFunction")
      Specified by:
      getReferenceKey in interface Function
      The name of the function
    • setParameters

      public void setParameters(Collection<CompoundVariable> parameters) throws InvalidVariableException
      A collection of the parameters used to configure your function. Each parameter is a CompoundVariable and can be resolved by calling the execute() method of the CompoundVariable (which should be done at execution.)
      Specified by:
      setParameters in interface Function
      parameters - The parameters for the function call
      InvalidVariableException - - when the variables for the function call can't be evaluated
