Type: New Feature
For some benchmarks, it is useful to get the binary data back from the server, something like this:
byte buf = new byte;
int nBytes = httpTransport.readURL(url, buf);
which would place the first 8192 bytes of the response into the provided buffer (and return the number of bytes, which could of course be <8192). The benchmark writer would be responsible for the buffer management in this case, including providing a large enough buffer for the data – which may not sound ideal, but is common in load generators like LoadRunner.
