I want to switch a script from version 2 to version 5 of JMeter. (Strangely) I could not find instructions how to convert scripts via web search. One of my guesses is that scripts does not require conversion, old scripts can be opened in newer versions.
In case of that particular script it looks kind of correct. It opens, when opened it runs almost fine. The issue is that it takes sereral hours to open it in ver 5 whereas in original ver 2 it takes couple of minutes. I tried to save opened script in ver 5 to new file. Version 2 gives errors when it's trying to open that new file, so looks like some conversion takes place. However, that new file still takes hours to open again in version 5. When I open similar short scripts made in ver 2 and ver 5 they look about the same xml files.
How to make script made in ver 2 to open quickly in ver 5? What could be of issue here?
EDIT: looks like the problem is not in particular script. A script created from scratch in ver 5 now takes like an hour to save (it's about 1mb file), I closed apps to free memory before starting ver 5 to have clean result. Ver 2 saved 10mb file in sereral seconds. Could it be java version, some settings?
