JMeter as testing tool for Spring app
Are there anyone who have experience in testing a Spring-based webapp using JMeter?
I wonder how to test submitions to forms as Spring handles those things in a special way. It's very seldom you actually parse the request parameters on a submission, they are instead bound to the form data object.
Are there a better way of load testing a Spring app?
Interested in all kinds of experience.
But is it at all possible...
Thanks for all replies, I appreciate it!
I've read about load testing webapps a bit, and there seems to be some disagreement if it is really possible to load test a webapp with 100% accurancy.
Say for example that a requirement says that a page shall be able to handle 100 concurrent requests. But when blowing upp 100 threads from a testing client other things come into play, like network latency, caching, queuing of the requests on the server, limitations in the client machine, etc. etc.
So my question is: can you be really sure that an app has met the requirements just from load testing with some tool that allows this?
What is your opinion / experience?
