Release Xceptance LoadTest 4.2.7

XLT LogoXLT 4.2.7 has been released. It delivers improvements as well as defect fixes. We recommend to upgrade as soon as possible to stay up to date.

Script Developer

  • Fix: Obsolete entries from the base url drop down can be removed now.
  • Improvement: With special characters in the link name, the Script Developer sometimes recorded an XPath locator instead of the more appropriate link locator.

Load Test Environment

  • Fix: Custom samplers stopped working for the rest of the load test when an exception was thrown. Now the sampler continues to run.
  • Fix: The Mastercontroller used a previously entered comment when the current comment was left empty.
  • Improvement: The Mastercontroller returns non-zero exit code for all error conditions now.

Framework

  • Fix: HtmlUnit did not sent the basic HTTP authentication header for follow-up requests correctly, only when challenged again.

Of course, we are providing a set of fresh Amazon Machines Images as well. You can find all information on our product page. Make sure you stay informed by subscribing to our XLT release email list.

XLT 4.0.5 is out

We just released Xceptance LoadTest 4.0.5. It is a minor update and recommended for everyone. But you might have special interests if you use the Script Developer heavily.

Besides a few defect fixes, release 4.0.5 delivers four great improvements to speed up test case creation and maintenance with Script Developer and make your work more productive.

  • The XLT Script Developer runs on Firefox 4 and 3 now.
  • Test variables are now resolved recursively, so you can use variables within resolved content.
  • There is no need to open modules anymore if you want to edit a line or two of it. Also enabling/disabling of module code can be done easily from the main test case. This saves time and aids script maintenance.
  • During script debugging and script execution, you can now evaluate assertions instantly to see whether or not your verification expression will match.
