Another remarks: In simulation a lot of java code / actions should NOT be executed, this is configurable (wait for my next part of the language proposal later today).
In load test, I think you WANT to execute all code, but maybe mock at some level.
So I think, we need a different approach for load testing, even if we may can reuse some stuff from the simulation (like the distributions / probabilities stuff).
But just for documentation at the moment, currently I am only working on simulation, not on load testing ;-)
hahaha... I agree with all of this. There should be a different engine to execute a loadtest.
Maybe the sim scripts can be used to do something with grinder which is highly configurable/scriptable/....
