As Given in the JMeter manual(13.4.1) I included httpAuthorizationManager
(BaseUrl given as http://machineIP):8080/MyProject,username and password)
and http Request Defaults in the thread group.

In the http Request(Sampler) I mentioned the protocol and path(as /MyProject/loginProcess.jsp).

Here loginProcess.jsp is the secret page. ie.Only after giving the correct username and password in the index.jsp alone the user could move to loginprocess.jsp page.

As mentioned in the first I included the "username" and "password" in the Authorization Manager but still, after running the script in "view Results Tree" listener I couldn't get any response from the loginprocess.jsp page.

Expecting the reply ASAP
