WAPT (Web Application Testing
) 2.0 is a load and stress testing tool that provides you with an easy to use, consistent and cost-effective way of testing web sites and intranet applications with web interface. Using WAPT you can test and analyze the performance characteristics and bottlenecks of a web site under various load conditions.
WAPT emulates the activity of human users with virtual users. Each virtual user emulates the actions of one real user. A test run can contain hundreds or thousands of virtual users to let you emulate the load experienced by a web site when the corresponding number of real users browse it. The behavior of each virtual user, the number of them and other test parameters are specified in test scenario.
WAPT interface is very easy to use. Basically it includes the following components.
- Test Recorder.
- Scenario Editor.
- Test Runner.
- Results viewer.Test recorder
is used to record your activity while you browse web site in the Microsoft Internet Explorer window. When this process is finished you can edit the test sequence, adjust virtual users behavior and add dynamically changing data using Scenario editor. Then you should use Test runner to specify additional parameters for the test and run it. When WAPT finishes running the test, it displays the results in the Results viewer using graphs and reports to give you the detailed information about web site performance under specified load conditions.
