JMeter is a 100% pure Java desktop application. JMeter is found to be very useful and convenient in support of functional testing. Although JMeter is known more as a performance testing tool, functional testing elements can be integrated within the Test Plan, which was originally designed to support load testing. Many other load-testing tools provide little or none of this feature, restricting themselves to performance-testing purposes. Besides integrating functional-testing elements along with load-testing elements in the Test Plan, you can also create a Test Plan that runs these exclusively. In other words, aside from creating a Load Test Plan, JMeter also allows you to create a Functional Test Plan. This flexibility is certainly resource-efficient for the testing project.
In this article by Emily H. Halili, we will give you a walkthrough on how to create a Test Plan as we incorporate and/or configure JMeter elements to support functional testing.Read Functional Testing with JMeter in full
In this article by Stefano Fornari, we will learn about one of the most exciting capabilities of Fuanambol: Mobile e-mail.
One of the biggest advantages of the Funambol platform is that with the same system, Maria can provide e-mail and PIM sync on many mobile platforms, including:
- Windows Mobile PDA and phones
- Symbian smartphones
- BlackBerry phones
- Java-enabled phones
- Apple iPhone
This article by Stefano Fornari explains how to develop extensions for the Funambol DS Service so that a developer can create integrations with other backend datasources.
The following sections present several concepts related to how Funambol can be used to build mobile applications. Before digging into the details of Funambol development, it is useful to describe some basic concepts of data synchronization, as it is the foundation for Funambol applications and services.Read Funambol development in full
In this article by Ross Tweedie, author of the book Learning FuelPHP for Effective PHP Development, we will learn what is FuelPHP. FuelPHP is a fresh approach to frameworks that strive to be more community-driven. There are already more than a hundred developers contributing and extending the source code. There are many more helping to provide some of the best documentation for a framework currently available.
The topics covered in this article are:
- A brief history of FuelPHP
- Features of FuelPHP
- What to look forward to in Version 2

The built-in IVR (Interactive Voice Response) engine is a powerful component of the FreeSWITCH system. It allows messages to be played and interactive responses (usually touch-tones) to be processed, in order to direct calls to particular destinations. It can ultimately allow callers to hear information without needing to speak to a live person, select options that enable/disable features, or enter data that can be used in account, billing, or other operations.
Most people are familiar with an IVR as an auto-attendant that answers a main number for your company and provides a list of options to reach people (that is, 'For sales press 1, for support press 2'). This avoids disruptions to unintended call recipients, and reduces or removes the need for a dedicated receptionist. More advanced IVRs can also be used for collecting information from a caller, such as a caller's account number or the PIN number for a conference bridge. In this article by Anthony Minessale, Michael S. Collins and Darren Schreiber, authors of the book FreeSWITCH 1.0.6, we will cover the following topics:
- IVR Engine Overview
- IVR XML Configuration File
- IVR Menu Definitions
- IVR Menu Destinations
- Routing Calls to Your IVR
- Nesting IVRs
- Using Phrases with IVRs
- Advanced Topics
In this article, by Anthony Minessale, Michael S. Collins and Darren Schreiber authors of FreeSWITCH 1.0.6, we will learn about how we use SIP to connect users, both locally and around the world. SIP is a ubiquitous protocol in the VoIP landscape. In this article, we will:
- Learn the principle behind the FreeSWITCH user Directory
- Explore and configure the FreeSWITCH user Directory for the first time
- Learn how to connect FreeSWITCH to service providers
- Make modifications to the Dialplan and directory XML configuration
- Briefly discuss SIP profiles and User Agents
Authentication is a process where we establish if someone is who he or she claims to be. The most common way is by a unique username and password. This article by Dirk van der Walt, author of FreeRADIUS Beginner's Guide, teaches authentication methods and how they work. Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is covered later in a dedicated article.
In this article we shall:
- Discuss PAP, CHAP, and MS-CHAP authentication protocols
- See when and how authentication is done in FreeRADIUS
- Explore ways to store passwords
- Look at other authentication methods
In the previous article we covered the Authentication Methods used while working with FreeRADIUS. This article by Dirk van der Walt, author of FreeRADIUS Beginner's Guide, teaches methods for storing passwords and how they work. Passwords do not need to be stored in clear text and it is better to store them in a hashed format. There are, however, limitations to the kind of authentication protocols that can be used when the passwords are stored as a hash which we will explore in this article.Read FreeRADIUS Authentication: Storing Passwords in full
