UbikLoadPack GWT plugin 4.5.2 for Apache JMeter released

We’re happy to announce the release of our GWT plugin for Apache JMeter.

This release continues to improve GWTRPC applications Scripting and brings more productivity and better debugging.

Smarter class finder for XML transformation

Now the plugin is able to search in a whole hierarchy structure and inform you about duplicate jars containing same class.

You just need to point to the root folder and plugin will do the rest.

Support of Apache JMeter 4.0

The new version 4.0 of Apache JMeter was released few days ago with a bunch of new features that make scripting and load testing even more productive and UI much sexier:

Usability Enhancements

In View Results Tree component, the 2 Gwt Renderers will now transform GWTRPC to XML even if Content-Type Header is not present. This is particularly useful when you want to mock a GWT RPC response.

Bug fixes

This release comes also with some bug fixes:

  • View Results Tree : Request view does not show a GWT request if URL contains parameters
  • During Recording with « on the fly » transformation from GWTRPC to XML or with wizard, plugin does not catch all exceptions related to missing classes.
  • Bad display and xml transformation of some GWT Responses
  • Function « __ulpGwtObjectToXml » can corrupt XML when converting a list
