vPerformer is a performance testing tool that is used to measure the performance, scalability and load stress capacity of web applications. vPerformer will show you how well your application responds when it is subjected to a large concurrent user load. vPerformer provides you the tools to rapidly create performance testing scripts that model the typical user interactions with your web application. You can then simulate loads of thousands of concurrent virtual users against these performance testing scripts that can be run either internally or in the cloud.
Tsung is a distributed load testing tool and an open source tool written in Erlang. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to stress Jabber/XMPP, HTTP, SOAP, LDAP and PostgreSQL servers (SSL is supported). It simulates complex user's behaviour using an XML description file, reports many measurements in real time (including response times, CPU and memory usage from servers, customized transactions, etc.). HTML reports (with graphics) can be generated during the load. For HTTP, it supports 1.0 and 1.1, has a proxy mode to record sessions, supports GET and POST methods, Cookies, and Basic WWW-authentication. It has already been used to simulate thousands of virtual users.

FlowLevel is an automation application that provides a flexible infrastructure for designing, deploying, displaying results and analyzing all types of processes. FlowLevel is also an advanced automated testing tool that enables performing an assortment of tests including functionality and performance tests on both static and dynamic recourses. With FlowLevel, defining the flow, rules, and elements of work is performed dynamically and the process follows them automatically. Once the flows and rules are captured, they can be changed, either to optimize the process or adapt to new conditions.
Parasoft SOAtest helps QA teams ensure secure, reliable, compliant business applications with an intuitive interface to create, maintain and execute end-to-end testing scenarios. It was built from the ground up to reduce the complexities inherent in complex, distributed applications. Update Tool Summary HERE
SandStorm tests system behavior under real-time conditions and converts this data into simple-to-understand, yet informative and sophisticated, graphs and reports. Equipped with this information, businesses, which develop Web applications can more quickly and efficiently resolve problems, thereby ensuring a positive end-user experience and providing the opportunity for increased revenue.
Empirix Hammer Test Solution provides pre-deployment validation of new solutions and updates to preempt issues from impacting customers. It assesses end-to-end network performance, including security vulnerabilities and the quality of voice, video, and data services. Empirix Hammer Test Solution accurately evaluates expected performance with the ability to reproduce real-world customer behaviors and the traffic patterns they create. Additionally, Empirix Hammer products can pinpoint network issues at their source for quick correction to keep projects on time and on budget.
The RapidRep® Test Suite is a solution for automated back-end testing. Amongst several other fields of application, it can be used to verify the functionality of programs without GUI (static and dynamic tests). Furthermore, RapidRep® can function as a “test oracle” and automatically determine target results (e.g. rule-based or model-based). When the target results are known (or have been determined) an automated target/actual-performance-comparison can take place. Contents of tables and files can be automatically tested as well, e.g. for data comparison after migrations.
TestCast is a TTCN-3 test development and execution platform. It is meant for black-box functional testing of embedded software systems and components in a wide range of industry sectors, i.e. telecom, automotive, avionics, military, industrial control, etc. TestCast is one of the two TTCN-3 test tools on the market that have passed the first TTCN-3 plugtest organized by European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) in 2009.
Expect is a tool for automating interactive applications such as telnet, ftp, passwd, fsck, rlogin, tip, etc. Expect is a program to automate interactions with programs that expose a text terminal interface. Expect uses pseudo terminals (Unix) or emulates a console (Windows), starts the target program, and then communicates with it, via the terminal or console interface. Tk, another Tcl extension, can be used to provide a GUI.
Wireshark is a network packet analyzer. A network packet analyzer will try to capture network packets and tries to display that packet data as detailed as possible. It is a measuring device used to examine what’s going on inside a network cable at a microscopic level. Wireshark is one of the best open source packet analyzers available today.
Jetty is a compact implementation of an HTTP server, HTTP client, and Servlet container. It is open source, dual licensed under the Apache License 2.0 and the Eclipse Public License. It is ideally suited for embedding, due to its small footprint, and design philosophy of being a well behaved component that can be added to nearly any application. Jetty is also among the most scalable servers available through its trailblazing implementation of asynchronous servlet facilities. With Jetty, you can use the same fast and light container for development, test, and production.
NEW New link in 'Files & Media' tab: Simpler JBehave Examples Table Processing - When implementing BDD tests using JBehave, scenarios can often be expressed more clearly and succinctly in tabular form in a manner similar to FitNesse.
New link was added in 'Files & Media' tab: Acceptance Tests with JBehave, Selenium & Page Objects (must login to view more links and extendant information)
JBehave-web, the web supporting modules for the core project, see more details at the 'Files & Media' section
Mstone is a mail performance measurement system. It can simultaneously test SMTP, POP, IMAP, and some HTML based systems. It measures transaction latency in multiple stages, and graphs the combined results from multiple clients. In order to simulate high load levels and to randomize accesses, Mstone can run on multiple test client machines and the results are automatically combined when the test is complete.
Imprimatur is a web application testing tool. The tests are described in a simple XML file. Along with the standard HTTP methods, Imprimatur handles authentication and file uploads. The responses can be validated using regular expressions, Imprimatur is designed to be the simplest web application functional testing tool that could possibly work. It sends HTTP requests to the application, and then validates the responses using regular expressions. The tests are written in an XML file. Imprimatur supports: GET, POST, PUT, HEAD and DELETE methods, HTTP authentication, Setting and checking of HTTP headers, File uploads and HTTPS.
SIPp is a free Open Source test tool / traffic generator for the SIP protocol. It includes a few basic SipStone user agent scenarios (UAC and UAS) and establishes and releases multiple calls with the INVITE and BYE methods. It can also reads custom XML scenario files describing from very simple to complex call flows. It features the dynamic displayof statistics about running tests (call rate, round trip delay, and message statistics), periodic CSV statistics dumps, TCP and UDP over multiple sockets or multiplexed with retransmission management and dynamically adjustable call rates.
