There are a number of tools available in the market that evaluates the performance of the Java based applications along with their load stress capability. These evaluation tools or testing tools, as they are called, guarantee that the performance of the application during peak traffic time as well as under extreme stress remains unperturbed and optimal. Let us discuss some of the best of these tools.
This is an open source tool that is mainly developed for load evaluation and is essentially an application that is based on Java Platform. It is basically an instrument that is used for evaluating the performance. It is also designed to facilitate integration with the designated plan for assessment. The tool facilitates creation of functional test plans besides gauging the load capacity. It is designed to be loaded into a particular network or server so that it is possible to check its performance as well as evaluate its functionality under various conditions. Though originally designed for web application testing, its scope has substantially widened subsequently, opening up newer avenues of usage. It performs in Windows as well as Unix operation systems.
This is again a software that is essentially developed for analyzing as well as measuring a website performance. It also has the capacity to evaluate the end result along with the performance, while it also provides directives regarding the potential steps that can further be taken. All these help immensely when it comes to optimizing the performance of a Java based web application. The software also evaluates web application performance by enhancing the amount of traffic that visits the application, thereby increasing the load.
The tool comes in double version and is available in French and English and is compatible with OS like Solaris, Windows, and Linux.
This is another product from HP, basically designed to measure performance of applications. It also helps to understand as well as determine the performance along with the outcome of a particular system during the time of actual load. One of the most amazing features of this tool is that it helps creating as well as handling a huge number of users simultaneously, helping to gather all the performance related information, and taking into account the infrastructure. LoadRunner technically speaking is a collection of various tools like Load Generator and Analysis, Controller, and VUS (Virtual User Generator). It runs on MS Windows and Linux Operating Systems.
This is considered as the next generation platform for testing the performance of applications. Appvance or Appvance PerformanceCloud is regarded as one of the most successful broad-scale platform that is designed specifically for the enterprise clients. The platform is technically prepared for surfacing deep app as well as site issues and evaluation of performance during optimal load time. It also comes up with a unique designer functionality that facilitates test creation without the use of any codes along with playback that takes place on the actual browsers within the cloud through a uxAvatar technology.
The tool works on JMeter, Selenium, Dynatrace, Flash/Flex, Oracle Forms, and is capable of evaluating upto 1oM users simultaneously.
It is a lightweight framework that is basically used as an application for unit testing from within J2EE environment. It supports Struts actions as well as forms, filters, servlets, as well as tag classes. Besides, it also comes up with includes a JDBC as well as a framework that facilitates JMS testing. This framework for JDBC evaluation can be used as a standalone as well as combining with MockEJB, especially when it comes to testing applications that are based on Enterprise JavaBeans or (EJB).
This is a JUnit extension that can also be used with Ant. Besides, the tool can also be used for different projects that are basically database-driven.
In fact, this an excellent tool, especially when it comes to avoiding a string of issues emanating from the corruption of database by test cases, causing all the subsequent assessments to fail or worsen the damage that has already been done.
You can hire programmers from top java web application development companies in India who can help you build products within allocated budgets and time schedules.
