I am running a weblogic 5.1 server and i have finished optimizing the performance with JProbe.
Now i want some sort of stress-test program that can simulate many web users at the same time to measure the maximum throughput of the server.
Can anyone help me with some suggestions / links ?

Depending what you expect from that kind of tools, if you want to have a huge report then choose for Loadrunner from Mercury, is very expensive also.
If you want to have a first indication then have a look at JMeter from Apache.
Another tool is webload.
Here are a couple of free ones:
http://webtool.rte.microsoft.com/ - very nice from M$.
http://java.apache.org/jmeter/index.html - open source, java based
I have found one as well. It is called OpenSTA, and is a freeware found at: http://www.opensta.org/
Try SuperStress of Super from www.acelet.com
It is based on PeekPoke technology. You can use your
mouse to set test case. You need your keyboard when
you want set arguments for your method calls. You can
fully configure the test using a Swing tool.
It is EJB server neutral.
