I have got a SWING application to load test.
I am still looking for a good functional testing tool, Marathon or QFS (the first is free and its script language is high level, the second must be buy but has a great working capture/replay feature).
Anyway, how do you feel about load testing a J2EE system through heavy SWING clients.
Your help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
C:\Apache\Apache Group\Apache2\bin\ab.exe a very simple utility to do load testing and is free.
There is a product called JMeter which you can use but truely speaking I never impressed with that
Sorry for broken english, Sir.
By "How do you feel with that", I mean, what is the recommended way of doing that.
What is the smartest way to start 200 SWING clients to do request to the JBoss server, and evaluate the system performance. I know this can sound strange but I will have to do it.
Starting 200 SWING client is it self an imaginary situation.
I am hopeless about how it will do a load testing of JBoss
Yes I heard also that Apache JMeter (http://jakarta.apache.org/jmeter/index.html
) help you in testing performance.
The case needs to be described:
- The client is a SWING app.
- The server is JBoss.
- There is no "easy" way to simulate Swing user by sending messages/requests to JBoss.
Conclusion: We have to really start hundred of SWING clients to know how the server will react.
What I am looking for is a tool (with agents distributed across network), and it could manipulate all these SWING apps, following preset scenarios, and give metrics about Server response time.
So I know JMeter, but it won t manage my SWING clients.
That was the big picture.
Comments are welcome.
It is all peer to peer connection.
As I can understand you have a situation of having 200 user who will be using your swing client.
Now you are expecting a tool which you can use to control all the swing applications let say running in 200 different m/c.
Oh God help Denis
