REST Sampler since 1.0.0 deprecated since 1.2.0

This plugin was originally developed by Atlantbh d.o.o., released as jmeter-components, then merged into JP@GC.

As there is a trend on creating Web Services based on REST as it is easier to build and consume than using SOAP-services.

When using REST, HTTP is used for calls between machines. REST uses HTTP for CRUD operations, where CRUD stands for create/read/update/delete.

With projects which include REST-based Web services we needed the possibility to send a request with an xml payload, most of the existing testing tools do not support this, that is why we have created a rest sampler plug-in where you can define the following:

  • Method: GET, POST, PUT, DELETE
  • Base url
  • Port
  • Resource
  • Headers: if there are any headers which should be part of the request
  • Body: xml payload to be sent
