Spread the love

Here I am going to explain and write a simple snippet that show how you can write a short code in JMeter BeanShell code that pull out the current date or you can modify to get feature date or previuos old date.

This is a simple code.

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;
 
Date date = new Date();
date.setDate(date.getDate()+5);
SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
String formattedDate = df.format(date);
vars.put("date",formattedDate);

Above Code Explanation:

  • The first two lines is defined to get java definations.
  • Next line will get the current system date. <Date date = new Date();>
  • Next line will addition or substract the current date by adding + (plus) or – (minus) number of days future or previous. <date.setDate(date.getDate()+5);> This will add 5 days from the current date.
  • Next line format the current date as per your requirement. <(“dd/MM/yyyy”);> you can format as you like ddMMyyyy, dd-MM-yyyy, read more format dates here.
    • Even you can defind directly below fucntion in JMeter, but not in BeanSheet.
      • ("dd-mmm-yyyy HHmmss") this will get 20-032-2015 233224
      • ("d-MMM-yyyy hhmmss") this will get 20-May-2015 113224
      • ("dd-m-yyyy hhmmss") this will get 20-32-2015 113224
      • ("D-M-yyyy hhmmss") this will get 140-5-2015 113224
      • ("DD-MM-yyyy") this will get 140-05-2015
  • The Next line is format the date as we required.
  • The Final line is put the required date into a variable, that you can parameterized in your JMeter Script with ${date} variable.
