XML w/ Performer
Does anyone know where I can get any information, preferably documentation, on Performer 4.5's use of XML? It is supposed to be the latest thing for them to support, but I can't find out anything beyond the bragging in the Help. The web site was pretty much the same...
What is the likelihood that someone has experience with XML from within Performer? Or will I be forging into new territory to share with everyone????

Re: XML w/ Performer
here's something from SP documentation.
"Enhanced XML Support Including SOAP Support
SilkPerformer 4.5 is now equipped with enhanced support for XML data transported via HTTP (XML/HTTP), the primary standard for electronic data interchange in B2B transactions. In addition, SilkPerformer fully supports load-testing applications using SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) and many other XML/HTTP based protocols, including the Open Financial Exchange 2.0 (OFX 2.0) protocol or the ebXML framework.
"SilkPerformer's XML support is based on its state of the art Web support and shares all its unique features, such as bandwidth simulation, SSL security, and True Log Technology. With SilkPerformer's scripting language, customizing XML data is simple and straightforward.
"By providing support for SOAP/XML, SilkPerformer is able load test server applications such as Microsoft's BizTalk Server, which is based on the SOAP compliant BizTalk Framework 2.0. SilkPerformer is also able to load test future Internet Application Servers based on Microsoft's emerging .NET architecture."
I have worked with SilkPerformer and XML data. It basically records the XML as a sting argument of the HTTP POST. So you can modify the string by manipulating the string. The one thing that's still missing is the ability to do concatantion in the dclform section of the script.
