For XML-over-HTTP style apps, it's easiest simple to hand-build up a
list of urls for a session and use a tool like Jef Poskanzer's httpload.
For SOAP and requests with post bodies, it's painful.
That said, I have a simple design in mind for something that would be
great I think. I've been investigating Apache JMeter and I really like
it and plan to use it on a project here. The idea I have would be to
implement a Java Filter (see the servlet spec) that is inserted into the
lps-enabled webapp before the LZServlet. You could then catch all
incoming requests for a given session, read/parse the special formed
urls, read any incoming POST bodies, and create an input file for apache
jmeter to run later.
This could be used for both server regression and server performance
We don't currently document the url protocol between the client and the
LZServlet though. But it is simple.
