Hi all,

I need to test the main interface of a web and instead of creating a whole scenario I would like to download a generic template for JMEter or use another tool for this purpose without the need to create an scenario for it.

I have searched on the net going in circles.

Any tip, please?

Regards, Isaac

Beyond simply pointing Curl at the page (just see if you can download it), some other web testing packages I have seen are:

http://htmlunit.sourceforge.net/ (HtmlUnit)

http://httpunit.sourceforge.net/ (HttpUnit)

I think I have used both of these. Many years ago, I saw HttpUnit used to actually do a screen-scrape against a Web GUI, so it could be invoked from the command line. Of course, I am not recommending that (get a RESTful interface behind the thing and invoke that from both web and command line). But, it shows the thing was pretty reliable.

HtmlUnit seems to be more up-to-date (a release in late 2015) than the other one.

There is no "swiss-army-knife" solution which would work on all the websites. You can have i.e. one for Wordpress-based, one for Drupal-based, one for Magento, etc. but it isn't possible to have a predefined script which would do the testing. JMeter offers some Templates which speed up common tasks, but it isn't something you're looking for.

The maximum you can do is simulating website "spidering", if this is you use case - you can consider HTML Link Parser test element.

Also check Open Source Load Testing Tools: Which One Should You Use? article for the most viable alternatives to JMeter (none of them is capable of doing what you request, elsewise performance testers wouldn't exist)
