We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The reports and analysis tools are very good. They are the solution's most valuable features."
"When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations."
"The most valuable feature is the support for Java, where we can quickly code what we need."
"Their technical support is awesome."
"You can utilize this tool on the cloud, and also access application on-premises. That is a very good part of the solution."
"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."
"It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations."
"JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training."
"The performance of the tool needs to improve."
"We used an implementation strategy to deploy the solution, not because of the tools, but mainly because of the scripting part of the tool."
"The solution is quite immature, it is not in an optimal state."
"This is an open-source solution, and there are no fees."
"This is an open-source product."
"I was using the free version of the software."
"In terms of open-source adoption, it is completely free."
"We are using the free version, and if required, we can easily switch to the other version."
"When comparing the price with Load Runner, and if the cost is an issue then JMeter is a better choice"
"I haven't looked into it. Most of our projects are nonprofit or grant-based. Everything is public commons, so we don't really have to worry about that so much."
"This solution is in the average price range compared to other testing tools."
"The only positive point is it came free with my test automation tool."
