Performance and scalability: Any functional testing tool for Web Application

  1. Any functional testing tool for Web Application (5 messages)

    Hi,

    I am looking for any automated GUI testing tool for (Ariba Buyer)web application, not for load testing. Any script-less tool will be great since our QA team have limited coding skill.

    Any recommendation for Silk or WinRunner or JMeter?


    Thanks.

  2. JMeter is a good enough tool for load testing and simple functional testing. You can view various reports and have a graph plotted for the various test cases.

    Most important of all it is free and easy to use
  3. There are a great deal of products out there to choose from. A rather complete, though not visually outstanding list is:

    <plug>Our product, WebWatchBot, can perform simple testing of web pages for response time, availability, and content. Check it out here: http://www.webwatchbot.com</plug>
  4. Jmeter is good[ Go to top ]

    I have used Winrunner and JMeter. Winrunner is I think quite an expensive software and very powerful. We used it mainly for functionality testing.

    But for most cases JMeter is good enough. I have used JMeter for both functionality testing and load testing. It really did serve the purpose. And this maybe a repeat.. but it is really easy to use.

    In my opinion, Mercury Interactive's Quick Test Pro is a great tool for functionality testing. It can be used to record interaction with a browser or with just any other Windows application. It generates VBScript so it is very easy to add functionality to the scripts (for example, reading info from databases, flat files, etc.).

  6. There is a new application : Selenium.
    Selenium allows : Browser compatability testing and System functional testing.
    There is a new release : Selenium IDE 0.7 !

    Features:

        * Intelligent field selection will use IDs, names, or XPath as needed
        * Autocomplete for all common Selenium commands
