jMeter is an Open Source testing software. 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. This course will give you great understanding on jMeter framework needed to test an enterprise level application to deliver it with robustness and reliability.
Before going into the details of JMeter, let us first understand a few jargons associated with the testing of any application.
JMeter is a software that can perform load test, performance-oriented business (functional) test, regression test, etc., on different protocols or technologies.
JMeter is a Java desktop application with a graphical interface that uses the Swing graphical API. It can therefore run on any environment / workstation that accepts a Java virtual machine, for example − Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.
The protocols supported by JMeter are −
JMeter simulates a group of users sending requests to a target server, and returns statistics that show the performance/functionality of the target server/application via tables, graphs, etc.
