Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution is free. You don't need to worry about licensing costs.""The solution offers a lot of plug-ins and a huge continuously developing community that is regularly offering new features and plug-ins.""API testing, Database Testing, and MQ testing can be done with ease.""The ease of use is the solution's most valuable feature. Also, the ability to easily create test cases is also very good. It's easy to just ramp up on the solution.""The most valuable feature for us is the available information on the forums and to be able to discuss and get answers from the people that are involved in using this tool.""JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages.""The most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jenkins and the reporting."

"It runs completely flawlessly and seamlessly every day.""It's an open-source solution with a very large community and available documentation."

More Appium Pros »

Cons
"The user interface is a little bit tricky.""The solution could use some sort of educational features to offer tips and hints to help users navigate it better. They should improve the manuals and help files.""The tool should be made a bit more robust, and better support should be made available.""In future releases, it would be helpful if there was an integration with ALM Octane.""There is some work to be done with the integration.""Considering the kinds of tests we are performing here, where we launch several tests at the same time as a batch request, JMeter is not the best tool for the job. Those kinds of things could be done easily with other tools, like T6.""Automation is difficult in JMeter.""The interface could be made more user-friendly."

"Configuration-wise, there is a lot of room for improvement.""Stability is an area that needs some improvement."

Overview

Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources, Web dynamic applications. It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, group of servers, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types.

Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in 'Browser' app on Android). Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app. Importantly, Appium is "cross-platform": it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.
