Understanding Custom Virtual Users

When you create a new custom virtual user (VU) type, two source files are created. The first source file defines a class that extends the base VU class. So, for example, if you create a new VU type called "MyJavaVU", based on the standard Java VU, then a source file called "MyJavaVU.java" will be created, containing the following code:

public class MyJavaVU extends com.facilita.fc.runtime.VirtualUser

{

@Override

public void pre() throws Exception

{

//do not remove following line

super.pre();

 

// Put any code that needs to execute at the start of the test here

}

 

@Override

public void post() throws Exception

{

// Put any code that needs to execute at the end of the test here

 

//do not remove following line

super.post();

}

 

...

}

The second source file defines a class that extends the base virtual user script class. So, in the example above, a source file called "MyJavaVUScript.java" will be created containing the following code:

public abstract class MyJavaVUScript extends com.facilita.fc.runtime.VirtualUserScript

{

@Override

public void pre() throws Exception

{

//do not remove following line

super.pre();

 

// Put any code that needs to execute at the start of the test here

}

 

@Override

public MyJavaVU getVU()

{

return (MyJavaVU)super.getVU();

}

}

You should add any code for carrying out common tasks to these two classes. Doing this will simplify your scripts and reduce duplication of code.
