The Art of Performance Testing With Jmeter

jmeter is a software that can perform load test, performance testing, regression test, etc., on different protocols or technologies and also you can integrate jmeter with selenium library

It is 100% pure Java application for load and performance testing. jMeter is designed to cover categories of tests like load, functional, performance, regression, etc., and it requires JDK 5 or higher.

JMeter is not a browser, it works at protocol level. As far as web-services and remote services are concerned, JMeter looks like a browser (or rather, multiple browsers); however JMeter does not perform all the actions supported by browsers. In particular, JMeter does not execute the Javascript found in HTML pages. Nor does it render the HTML pages as a browser does (it’s possible to view the response as HTML etc., but the timings are not included in any samples, and only one sample in one thread is ever displayed at a time).

Before proceeding with this tutorial, you should have a basic understanding of Java programming language, text editor and execution of programs, etc., because you are going to use jmeter to handle all levels of Java project testing (regression, functional, load, performance, etc.,), so it will be good if you have knowledge of software development and software testing processes.

Apache jmeter features include:

  • Ability to load and performance test many different applications/server/protocol types:
  • Web – HTTP, HTTPS (Java, NodeJS, PHP, ASP.NET, …)
  • SOAP / REST Webservices
  • FTP
