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.
