Random Date as Feeder

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to generate the current date or timeStamp as Feeder? I need to update the timestamp for each injection…Could anyone help?

Thanks a lot,


A feeder is one way. Here is another:

import java.util.Date
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat

val isoFormat = “yyyy-MM-dd’T’HH:mm:ssZ”
def format( d: Date ) =
new SimpleDateFormat( isoFormat ).format( d )
override def toString = format( new Date() )


To use it, you would save the object into the session, like so:

…exec( session => session.set( “CURRENT_DATE_TIME”, ISO_TIMESTAMP ) )


Now, every time you reference ${CURRENT_DATE_TIME} in an expression, it will always populate with the current date/time.

If you need a date/time that doesn’t automatically update, you can do that easily enough with:

…exec( session => session.set( “TRANSACTION_TIMESTAMP”, ISO_TIMESTAMP.toString ) )


Thanks a lot! It works :stuck_out_tongue:
