Apache JMeter

We use JUnit and Jest to perform the bulk of our automated test scenarios, with additional work with Apache JMeter for performance testing - for example, the Atlassian Data Center compliance testing is performed with JMeter. Jest provides testing for the React interfaces, which make up the backend of our App offerings. JUnit is used for Unit Testing our Server-based Apps. Mocha is another tool we use.

Apache JMeter

Apache JMeter a project of Apache Software Foundation, was originally designed to test web applications but later developed to perform different test functions. In JMeter web applications, it is possible to test static files such as HTML, CSS, and JS, as well as dynamically generated web services based on SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) and REST (Representational State Transfer). JMeter helps to simulate the web requests of real users while using a web app.

Apache JMeter Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Apache JMeter?
Gatling is a highly capable load testing tool. It is designed for ease of use, maintainability and high performance. Out of the box, Gatling comes with excellent support of the HTTP protocol that makes it a tool of choice for load testing any HTTP server. As the core engine is actually protocol agnostic, it is perfectly possible to implement support for other protocols. For example, Gatling currently also ships JMS support.
Loader.io is a free load testing service that allows you to stress test your web-apps/apis with thousands of concurrent connections.
Locust is an easy-to-use, distributed, user load testing tool. Intended for load testing web sites (or other systems) and figuring out how many concurrent users a system can handle.
Simulate any user scenario for webapps, websites, mobile apps or web services. 100% Apache JMeter compatible. Scalable from 1 to 1,000,000+ concurrent users.<br>
