Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages.
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.
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.
API testing, Database Testing, and MQ testing can be done with ease.
The solution offers a lot of plug-ins and a huge continuously developing community that is regularly offering new features and plug-ins.
The solution is free. You don't need to worry about licensing costs.
The major thing it has helped with is to reduce the workload on testing activities.
The feature I like most is the ease of reporting.
The ability to develop scripts in Visual Studio, Visual Studio integration, is the most valuable feature.
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.
There is some work to be done with the integration.
In future releases, it would be helpful if there was an integration with ALM Octane.
The tool should be made a bit more robust, and better support should be made available.
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 user interface is a little bit tricky.
The support for automation with iOS applications can be better.
The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.
They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.
Pricing and Cost Advice
This is an open-source solution, and there are no fees.
I switched to Apache because it is free. Other tools are much too expensive and can cost up to $50,000 a year if you are looking at commercial options.
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and while I think that the price is quite reasonable I am not allowed to share those details.
