  • Learn how to quickly configure JMeter for practical load testing
  • Understand Web services testing and beanshell scripting
  • Learn how to develop, run, and analyze JMeter scenarios
  • Explore and use a fully pre-configured instance of JMeter
The Apache JMeter™ application is open source software, a 100% pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. This hands-on workshop teaches you how JMeter is used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources, and Web dynamic applications. In class, you will simulate load on a server, a group of servers, or a network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. The workshop format provides a rich interactive learning experience with incremental lessons and labs that build upon one another.
