Load Testing Web Applications with Gatling and Maven

Friday, May 6th, 2016

I have written about other performance testing tools for web applications before. Nevertheless I’d like to demonstrate a library for load testing web applications named Gatling in combination with the build tool Maven.

Gatling offers a nice Scala DSL, high performance using Akka, Netty and asynchronous IO and plug-ins for all modern build tools.

In the following tutorial I’m going to show how to record simulations using an HTTP proxy, rewriting simulations in Scala and running and reporting simulations with Maven.


Performance Testing a Multiuser Web Application with JMeter and Maven

When there is the need to create load tests or performance tests for an application, Apache JMeter is a handy tool and set up with ease.

In the following short tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to configure JMeter to log into a Java EE web application with multiple users specified in a CSV file, how to generate some basic reports and how to integrate JMeter into a mavenized build using the JMeter Maven Plugin.
