    Hi,

    I want to load\stress test a j2ee application. Can anyone suggest a good and effective open source tool for it.

    Thanks in advance

    Grinder is a very popular load tool.

    I've written a paper on using The Grinder with Cactus. If you already have unit tests written it is a very good choice.

    see www.kimble.co.uk under the menu option Papers

    Hi,
    you may have a look at jmeter (http://jakarta.apache.org/jmeter/) or opensta (http://www.opensta.org/) too.
    regards.

    It isn't a stress testing tool, but you might find JAMon useful for monitoring your application and seeing how/if performance degrades with increasing load. It is simple to use. Within the next week or 2 source code and javadocs will also be put on the website.

    You guys may not come back to this discussion. Anyway, I'll post mine. I have recently looked into some stress test tools. None of below satisfied me in reliability and result report wise.

    * OpenSTA - It records results for every component in a web page, i.e. a image, a js script, jsp. So hard to sum the time for a page, which a user will get at last. By the way, I can't trust the result. For example, response time gets smaller as the number of reponses grows in the graph of Response Time vs Number of Responses.

    * Microsoft Web Application Stress Tool - This records for every component, too.

    * WebPerformance Trainer 2.1 - The result data doesn't make sense. Its manual may be the problem. Even though the data is correct, it's hard to do my own analysis from its result. The width of list is not adjustable, it takes a day to find the URL I want to examine.

    * Astra Load Test - too complex to evaluate in 7 days.
