Methods for Load testing WebMethods to find the true throughput


I was just checking if anyone had any methods that were successful in testing the webMethods piece of your application?

I was first thinking of writing a java program that would spit out data instead of connecting to an erp.

This way we get a true picture of what webMethods can do.

However, I am not sure what tool I should be using to try and loadtest.

Should I just use loadrunner or write a customer application to act as the loadtester?

If anyone has any ideas let me know.



Hi, Arthur.

February’s webMethods Ezine will feature an article on using JUnit for Unit Testing. The author is Daniel Mekonnen. I will make sure that he sees this thread in case he has any quick answers for you.

I hope you can be patient for a few days! Thanks.
