I have a document with some non-functional requirements, I never have done this before. I have been asked for create a jmx file
but I am a little bit lost I don't from where start.

I am using jmx.2.1, and Jmeter. I have found an example like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jmeterTestPlan version="1.2" properties="2.3" jmeter="2.8 r1393162">
<TestPlan guiclass="TestPlanGui" testclass="TestPlan" testname="Test Plan" enabled="true">
<stringProp name="TestPlan.comments"></stringProp>
<boolProp name="TestPlan.functional_mode">false</boolProp>
<boolProp name="TestPlan.serialize_threadgroups">false</boolProp>
<elementProp name="TestPlan.user_defined_variables" elementType="Arguments" guiclass="ArgumentsPanel" testclass="Arguments" testname="User Defined Variables" enabled="true">
<collectionProp name="Arguments.arguments"/>
<stringProp name="TestPlan.user_define_classpath"></stringProp>
<Arguments guiclass="ArgumentsPanel" testclass="Arguments" testname="User Defined Variables" enabled="true">
<collectionProp name="Arguments.arguments">
<elementProp name="SOAP_REQUEST_URL" elementType="Argument">
<stringProp name="Argument.name">SOAP_REQUEST_URL</stringProp>
<stringProp name="Argument.value">http://serverX:xxxx/name/bl</stringProp>
<stringProp name="Argument.desc">Desc URL</stringProp>
<stringProp name="Argument.metadata">=</stringProp>

I need test things like: "Baseline performance tests ","Stress tests ","100 User concurrent user test ".

Could anyone give any advice or clue please?

You can run jmeter for 100 users, for that below are the steps
1) Record the script
2) Customize user data
3) Customize session
4) Run the jmeter script

Hi Angus

I would recommend starting with the basics - learning how to create and run a straightforward JMeter script. Some tutorials I found include:

And Building a Web Test Plan from the Apache JMeter Users Manual.

It sounds like you might want to research Performance vs. load vs. stress testing.

Good luck. You may have more questions afterwards, but these should be enough to get you to a point to where you can ask more detailed questions.
