GNU Xnee

Introduction

The GNU Xnee is a suite of programs that can record, replay and distribute user actions under the X11 environment. It can be used for testing and demonstrating X11 applications. Within X11 each user input (mouse click or key press) is an X Window system event. Xnee records these events into a file. Later Xnee is used to play the events back from the file and into an X Window System just as though the user were operating the system. Xnee can also be used to play or distribute user input events to two or more machines in parallel. As the target X Window application sees what appears to be physical user input it has resulted in Xnee being dubbed “Xnee is Not an Event Emulator.” Xnee is an opensource application and it can be modified to handle special tasks. For example, inserting time stamps as part of the playback. GNU Xnee is a suite of programs that can record, replay and distribute user actions under the X11 environment. Think of it as a robot that can imitate the job you just did. GNU Xnee is licensed under GNU GPLv3.

LoadRunner

Introduction

HP LoadRunner is an automated performance and test automation product for application load testing: examining system behaviour and performance, while generating actual load. A software testing tool, HP LoadRunner works by creating virtual users who take the place of real users' operating client software, such as Internet Explorer, sending requests using the HTTP protocol to IIS or Apache web servers. HP LoadRunner can simulate thousands of concurrent users to put the application through the rigors of real-life user loads, while collecting information from key infrastructure components (Web servers, database servers etc.) The results can then be analyzed in detail to explore the reasons for particular behavior.

test-analytics

Introduction

Test Analytics is a web application that allows rapid generation of a project's ACC model -- an alterative to a test plan that is faster to create and of more practical value. This decomposition of the product allows a easy way to visualize project risk across project capabilities. In addition, Test Analytics supports importing quality signals -- tests, code changes, and bugs -- to quantify risk and map it across your project's model. This gives a bird's eye view of the risk associated with all areas of your project, and a way to assess what portions of your project need additional testing.
