Staging a Complex Composition for Play

The Composition Editor toolbar provides additional play controls that are useful for more complex test compositions. In the Composition Editor, Repeat Composition, Load/Unload Composition, and Play Mode buttons provide pre-play control over test composition staging. For example, the Load/Unload Composition button is useful for a test composition that specifies multiple (Maestro) server locations may take a few moments to load.

Use Repeat Composition to play your test composition in a continuous loop.

Use the Load and Unload Composition toggle to stage complex test compositions prior to clicking Play. This pre-staging of test compositions is particularly useful in Cloud environments such as on Amazon EC2. Load Composition can help identify any problems with the staged components of a given test.
