Getting Started with JMeter!

Get performance statistics on your web page and automate a web page functional test at that same time. Get introduced to test automation and obtaining performance metrics with JMeter, a popular, free, open source competitor to HP LoadRunner. JMeter is one of the most popular web performance and functional testing tools available. Together, we will walk through obtaining performance statistics on a web page and complete a functional test or two. The demonstrations will provide the basics and the foundation to build your own tests. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops if possible, and it will be helpful (but not required) to download and install Java and Apache JMeter prior to the workshop. A useful preparation for this session is: http://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/best-practices.html

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to write extensible tests
  • Use JMeter for functional API tests as well as load tests
  • Connect JMeter to a scheduler for great smoke tests and regression tests
