Description Cyril SCETBON 2012-03-15 08:57:29 UTC
If there is an empty user variable defined (maybe someone click the add button without filling name and value for example), an exception is raised by the JDBC Request component :

jmeter.threads.JMeterThread: Error while processing sampler 'JDBC Request' : java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to org.apache.avalon.excalibur.datasource.DataSourceComponent
        at org.apache.jmeter.protocol.jdbc.config.DataSourceElement.getConnection(DataSourceElement.java:137)
        at org.apache.jmeter.protocol.jdbc.sampler.JDBCSampler.sample(JDBCSampler.java:176)
        at org.apache.jmeter.threads.JMeterThread.process_sampler(JMeterThread.java:411)
        at org.apache.jmeter.threads.JMeterThread.run(JMeterThread.java:297)
        at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:662)

Components shouldn't use undefined variables

Believe me, it was hard to find the cause of this issue ...

please help me,
when i am trying to import data from .txt or .csv file to sqlserver through JDBC from JMeter, it is showing the following Error:

"java.lang.String cannot be cast to org.apache.avalon.excalibur.datasource.DataSourceComponent"

But it is taking the request correctly  as like below
"[Select Statement] insert into  new values ('shatrughun')"

but not exporting to database.

please do the needful help.

Thank you

Last reported Bug was related to error in variable naming which will be easier to detect now with:

I close issue as fixed.
