Description Holger Isenberg 2007-01-19 08:40:05 UTC
With SVN revision 497856 on rel-2-2 Regular Expression Extractor does 
not work anymore on Mac OS X. About a month ago all was fine. Tested 
with all current Java versions on Mac (1.4.2, 1.5.0, 1.6.0).

When the small patch for Mac at #41414 is included into the nightly 
builds, I'll try that compiled version.

Have you been able to try the latest nightly build?

Exactly what does not work on Mac OS X - any errors in jmeter.log?

This JMX-script does not work anymore with the current nightly build
(2007/01/21)

First, I thought the reason was my build process on Mac OS. Now I 
checked again with the nightly build (2007/01/21): The error seems to 
be independent from operating system as the attached simple test  
also failed on Windows. The variable ${title} stays on the initial 
value of "0" set by "User Variables". When not listed on "User 
Variables" the value of ${title} is set to "${title}" instead of the 
extraction result or the default value "-1".

Failed with nightly build jakarta-jmeter-2-2.20070122_*.zip on all 
operating systems. Tested with Java 1.5 and 1.6 on Windows, Linux, 
Mac.

If you uncomment the following jmeter.property it will work:

jmeterthread.reversePostProcessors=true

The new default is invoke PostProcessors to work in forward order.

Oops! Although I reversed the list scanning, I overlooked the iterator setup 
call.

This was setting the position to the last entry - so of course it does not find 
any later entries.

Try the next nightly build, and it should work OK again - but in the forward 
order.

Thanks for reporting the bug.

Thanks for the quick fix!

With 20070124 it does work now, independent from 
jmeterthread.reversePostProcessors settings.
