I want to extract a value from an json response string.

it looks like
{success:true, regcode:'49834', message:'kskkdsdf' }

JMeter let's you use regex to grab the value and tie it to a variable.

can someone help me create this regex expression.

Which value? In Java or JavaScript?

I want to get the regcode value. this is inside jmeter, I don't see how the question of java or javascript is relevant. maybe there is something I don't understand about jmeter. I was thinking of using the regular expression extractor. I would love to hear there are other ways.

>>I don't see how the question of java or javascript is relevant

It's relevant since the regex syntax is quite different in each case

I see.
the example given in jmeter is
<a href="([^"]+)"
which extracts all the hyperlinks in the returned html page.

can you tell which camp this is in?

Having said that, regex itself shouldn't be relevant since a json api should be used really

I am lost. the jmeter example gave no indication of a json api. it is a graphic based app, and it is using the regex expression I provided to extract the hyperlinks.

my question is, based on this, is it possible to figure what expression to use to extract the regcode value from a returned json string.
