LoadRunner RegExp - Challenge resolved

LoadRunner RegExp - Challenge resolved

Great news! The challenge, I posted about using Regular Exprassions in Loadrunner, has been resolved! I wondered - how to use RegExp in LoadRunner.

The winner is Charlie Weiblen. Congratulations, Charlie! Hooray! :)
He proposed the following solution - Regular Expressions in LoadRunner. Yes, it allows to use Regular expressions in LoadRunner and his solution works perfectly.

Also, I recommend to pay attention to his site - Performance engineering & testing. It contains a lot of interesting information on Performance testing and LoadRunner in particular.

As I promised, the reward is $52.25. Since Charlie asked me to donate this money to FSF (Free Software Foundation), I did so.

I captured screen shots to confirm that I donated money as I promised - $52.25. (Please, click on images to enlarge them):
Donation page #1
Donation page #2
Donation page #3
Confirmation email from FSF (Free Software Foundation)

Well, what's next?
  • First of all, I recommend to read solution from Tim Koopmans - Regex Pattern Matching in LoadRunner.
    Tim updated and simplified Charlie's solution. It looks simple and clear.
    Great work, Tim!
  • I developed Charlie's and Tim's solutions to search several matches or nested groups.
    I plan to publish it within the next few days.
Also, I would like to ask your advice.
