Building a Test Plan That Tests Web Sites

This section will describe in brief how a basic Web Test Plan can be created. We will later expand this basic Test Plan to allow us to perform Performance Testing (Chapter 5) and Functional Testing (Chapter 6).

The elements that we will need for this basic Test Plan are as follows:

  • Thread Group
  • HTTP Request (Sampler)
  • HTTP Request Default (Configuration Element)
  • Summary Report (Listener)

Things to be done by us are as follows:

  • Add Users
  • Add and Configure Default HTTP Request
  • Add HTTP Requests
  • Add Listener to View/Store the Test Results
  • Save & Run Test Plan

First of all, run JMeter (double-click JMeter.bat from jmeter/bin). You will see the default Elements, which are Test Plan and Workbench.
