Data DrivenTesting(from a database)

Data to a test needs to be varied , however the input needs to be constrained to a set of values(normally in some database table). E.g. check the prices of the top 10 items. Here we need to provide 10 item ids , however if these values are kept in a CSV file , then the file needs to be repeatedly updated. There needs to be a way to get these values to the test at runtime

Use the JDBC Request Sampler to fetch the data at runtime. Use either the Save Responses to a file or a BeanShell post processor to write the data to a file. Finally use the CSV Data Set Config to read this data.
