Packt is pleased to announce the release of Performance Testing with JMeter 2.9, a practical, hands-on guide that equips readers with all the essential skills needed to effectively use JMeter to test web applications.

About the Author: Bayo Erinle is a software engineer with over 9 years of experience in designing, developing, testing, and architecting software.

JMeter 2.9 is an Apache project that can be used as a load testing tool for analyzing and measuring the performance of a variety of services with a focus on web applications. It is a Java application that was originally designed solely for testing web applications, but it has since grown and expanded to provide other test functions.

Performance Testing with JMeter 2.9 begins with the fundamentals of performance testing and gets readers acquainted with JMeter. It then guides the reader through recording realistic and maintainable scripts. Readers will also learn how to work with tools such as Vagrant, Puppet, and AWS, allowing them to leverage the cloud to aid in distributed testing.

The eBook will teach readers how to do some BeanShell scripting as well as how to take advantage of regular expressions, JMeter properties, and extension points to build comprehensive and robust test suites. Also, it will teach developers how to test RESTful web services and how to deal with XML, JSON, file downloads/uploads, and much more.

This eBook is primarily for developers, quality assurance engineers, testers, and test managers who are new to Apache JMeter. It is also beneficial for those who simply want to learn how to effectively use and become proficient with Apache JMeter 2.9.
