Why provide demonstrations?


Early on while working with OpenSTA we realised that to be able to provide any s
ort of examples or tutorials we needed a common Web application to provide the e
xamples against. Knowing that users would get much more from running tests again
st local machines we decided to write a very trivial example application ourself
. Hopefully you'll find these easy to install and they'll help you to learn and
experiment with OpenSTA.

This Web application provides a very simple search engine which has a login page
and uses cookies to perform session tracking and timout (albeit in a very contr
ived fashion). This application is used throughout the OpenSTA Getting Started G
uide and the contrived way it uses cookies was initially to illustrate a point i
n this document. The GSG is a bit out of date now and the last editor seems to h
ave left some parts of the their updates incomplete... the next version will pro
bably use an updated version of this application.
The application consists of 2 files, a perl CGI style script and a plain text da
tabase. To install simply put the perl file somewhere your Web server will treat
it as a CGI executable. By default the perl script looks for its database in th
e same directory as itself but if you want to put this elsewhere just edit the s
cript. These 2 files in a zip archive can be downloaded:

Early on while working with OpenSTA we realised that to be able to provide any s
ort of examples or tutorials we needed a common Web application to provide the e
xamples against. Knowing that users would get much more from running tests again
st local machines we decided to write a very trivial example application ourself
. Hopefully you'll find these easy to install and they'll help you to learn and
experiment with OpenSTA.
