JMeter is well suited for Java applications where the user can script the scenario once and make changes to accommodate for as many numbers of users for load test execution. The image and selection of any files or exporting files scenario is handled well.
It is less appropriate to test Ajax applications where it is required to script click per use.

The tool is well suitable for the web, desktop automation's but when it comes to Citrix it lags the automation capabilities and needed to use the additional the OCR and need to integrate with other software's, developing the Citrix automation is time-consuming and difficult task for the developer, When it comes to Web, Desktop it is very good in making the things done.

Pros

JMeter

  • Easy of use - in generate load like HTTP requests, and processing/analyzing the responses. No coding is necessary at the basic level, just need to understand load testing and the infrastructure being tested.
  • Automatic management of things like cookies to help with session state support - so you don't specifically have to worry about it or handle it
  • Lots of testing/configuration options to suit your needs in making the right load generation (sampling requests), and analyzing the results, including any pre and post processing of the results first. Things like the Beanshell/BSF pre/post processors, response assertion, regular expression extractor, XPath extractor, CSV data set config
  • There is a JMeter cloud service called BlazeMeter that I think would be useful for those that need to scale up high load without provisioning their own systems. I've not personally tried it though, but I recently attended a meetup presentation that highlighted nice useful features that BlazeMeter provides. One should evaluate the service if they are considering JMeter and need to expand beyond existing hardware resources.

  • Control room - Finally a tool where you can schedule your process automation or run whenever it is needed
  • It is worth saying that you can easily re-engineering and thorough understanding and re-use those applications that are already built. We can save time especially when processes to automate are similar.

Cons

JMeter

  • Jmeter requires many tweaks with respect to its configuration file and thread properties. users need to edit theses files themselves. There could be some interface where we can edit this fields.
  • Jmeter cannot handle more threads and hangs up when we increase the number of threads. This causes lot of inconvenience. In these situations, user can be notified that such change would be lead to slow performance so that user can do as required. The same appears when we try to view huge files on graph listener.
  • Jmeter should optimize the read and write access to output csv since it acts as overhead to the I/O performance. This affects our test results for the application which we are testing.

  • It is better to have functionalities for an attended ROBOT, but I am okay with that.
  • Data types are constant only if we are using their special type of code block. I've had no other issues with Blue Prism operations.
  • It would be better to have a free online "Advanced Training Program" for Blue Prism, apart from their certification program.

Price, Wiki and user sharing. Having access to the information provided by the developers and other open source providers is key for me. The ability to share information and get answers directly is very important to success in software testing. And the price of this product currently is amazing. Too many companies charge way too much money for products that are far behind in their value and pertinence

I can jump right into a new test plan and start building from scratch. The natural progression from test plan to thread group and then designing the basic format of the process is very streamlined and smooth. With only slight modifications I can build out a very complex model from a very basic beginning.

It's easy to handle and automate. Saves time and money in significant manner. Once a process is implemented, it performs the tasks with more than 95% accuracy so that's a big help. Costing is a bit high and object recognition work may need time to be hands on that's [the reason] this rating.

I have been using JMeter for the last year. By using this tool, you can make sure the system will work under varied loads. It helps us to simulate real time scenarios by creating required virtual users and make sure the application will work under load. Perform load, stress, and stability testing using JMeter.

Support is good and now with time online support in other forums is becoming available as well. Blue Prism support in itself is also good. Documents and blogs can help to find the solution. Since it's relatively new, sometimes if I'm stuck it can take time to find the solution or connect to their team.

Alternatives Considered

JMeter

I have used LoadRunner and Silkperformer, and so far Jmeter turns out be the easiest to use of all these. While each of them have their own ROI, Jmeter can be picked by anyone in hours and start testing within a day. While with other tools, we need to get license, install them (takes a while) and setup tests and firewalls, etc.

We implemented Blue Prism RPA for a highly complex process which required a complex set up. Since then, it has been working excellently with high accuracy.

Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

  • Huge cost saving/time-saving and manpower utilization when the bots are implemented by decoding the business use cases perfectly.
  • The negative impact, the whole process or automation can lead to incorrect processing of data if the logic of the use cases is not implemented correctly in the bot.
