Hello,
I am trying to do load/performance test of JSF2.0/richfaces application with JMeter but having some issues with it. I am following this instruction from here JMeter.

But I am still having an issue as follows:


Can some one please help help me figure out why I am getting ViewExpiredException?
Thanks.

Hello Tim,

I had the same problem and solved it. Here's what I did:

  • Locate the "viewState"-tag in the page source (Browser -> View Source)
  • Adjust the regex expression in the "Regular Expression Extractor" according to page source
  • Put your Regular Expression Extractor at the right place


  • The regex:
    In my case I added autocomplete="off". My Regex now looks like this:
    Location of Regular Expression Extractor
    I added the Regular Expression Extractor as child of the initial HTTP Request.


    It took me a few days to figure it out. I'm not sure what it was, maybe the wrong regex expression or the wrong location of the "Regular Expression Extractor". Finally it works.
