Comment 2 Philippe Mouawad 2018-10-01 12:55:52 UTC
Hello Artem,
Thanks for report and PR.

I don't think bug description is good, as if I put an absolute path and empty filename and mime type , it works.

I would say issue is more about finding relative file no ?
Comment 3 Artem Fedorov 2018-10-01 13:03:00 UTC
Hi Phillipe

The other additional requirement for reproduce this bug is the different JMeter_home and jmx_file_location.
Also I use just relative path in my example.

For example: 
I have my JMeter in /home/artem/apache-jmeter/ folder and I tried open the attached test plan from /home/artem/Downloads/ folder it will not work and will throws an exception.

I have to agree, that the title of this bug is misleading (the patch looks good).

The bug is an incomplete search path applied to the filenames used in the upload functionality of the http sampler, no?
Comment 6 Artem Fedorov 2018-10-02 08:25:57 UTC
Sure. I changed the bug label
Comment 7 Felix Schumacher 2018-10-03 09:56:40 UTC
Thanks for the nice patch (especially that it includes a test case :)
Will be included in the next version (which is probably 5.1)

@Felix, @Artem,

Just in case: the test case is wrong.
The test passes even without the changes to HTTPHC4Impl class.
Comment 9 Felix Schumacher 2019-03-02 16:45:34 UTC
The test fails for me when I run it via "ant clean install test".

How did you run it?
Comment 10 Vladimir Sitnikov 2019-03-02 17:07:09 UTC
@Felix, I was running the test from IDE. Apparently the test relies on "current working directory" which is `jmeter_svn/bin/` in Ant case and `jmeter_svn/` in IDE.
Comment 11 Felix Schumacher 2019-03-02 17:08:41 UTC
That's what I thought. I am currently working on a better version, that works in both settings.

Make test work in both IDE and ant setting

The test used the setting of CWD, which is different when run from an IDE or from ant.
Now it uses JMeterHome which is the same for both environments.

And while we are at the test,
 * we try to make sure, that we don't disturb other tests with the manipulated base dir
 * use more descriptive messages in the case of a failure
