You have to use the JavaScript operator to read a content from the file. Add to the operator something like the following:

var fso,filehandle,contents;
fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
filehandle = fso.OpenTextFile("D:\\Temp\\WAPT\\5.0 Test\\JSONFromFile\\json.txt",1);
contents = filehandle.ReadAll();
context.variable("test") = contents;

Then use the variable "test" in a POST request body.
