JMeter Learning

My Learning with JMeter. This new year, i will come with some post on my learning with JMeter. This is the first inital post, which is starting point. Apache JMeter Apache JMeter   is Open Source Software, a 100% pure Java desktop application designed to load test client/server software (such as a  web application  ).  It may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources such as static files, Java Servlets, Perl scripts, CGI scripts, Java objects,  databases and queries  ,  FTP servers  , and more. JMeter can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. JMeter can help you regression test your application by letting you create test scripts with assertions to validate that your application is returning the results you expect. For maximum flexibility, JMeter lets you create these assertions using regular expressions. Starting to Use: To Inst
