I am developing a load test in visual studio 2013. I build the load test from web performance tests and have each web performance test load data with a web test plugin the data goes into the context parameters. The web test plugin seems to work (if I throw exceptions in it, the test fails) during the load test. However, in examining the results it is clear that the data is not loaded or at least not used. Also in its behavior it is clear that not all data is available: failure due to missing data. When run within a wrapper web performance test, the web tests I use in the load test all work as expected.
So, my questions are aimed at people with more loadtest experience than I have.
- Is there indeed a difference between loadtest context parameters and webtest context parameters within that load test?
- How would I go about if I want to load data for each webtest within my load test to update the context parameters in the loadtest?
