  7. more testing tools[ Go to top ]

    For those who are using Eclipse/WSAD, there is also an open source plug-in available, fully integrated with the IDE:


    Based on a built-in Web proxy and a concept of extraction, replacement, and assertion rules (which can all be driven by regular expressions), Solex provides functions to record a client session, adjust it according to various parameters and replay it. This is typically aimed at ensuring the non-regression of a Web application's behavior.

    Did someone allready use Solex in a real world environment.
    I experienced some problems and would like to talk about, as I don't find much info about it.

    Though not open source, don't forget about Beantest from Empirix for EJB performance testing:

    Grinder is not just for weblogic. We use it a lot for load and (simple) functional testing. We also tried jmeter but the version at the time had a memory leak and died after an hour's worth of load testing.
