    JMeter

    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.

    Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

    Blue Prism Intelligent RPA is well suited for the processes which are rules-based in nature. This software works well with web based application integrations. It's very easy to capture the object details and code the workflow with ease. The record functionally will do the trick most of the time and will save a lot of effort in coding the workflow. Work needs to continue in the surface automation part. It works with surface automation but there are chances of failure sometimes and we feel like the control of automation is very fragile.

    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.

    Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

    • 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.

    Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

    • Object handling can be improved more and instead of going through each and every object to find its functionality it is hard and only the experienced BP tool user can understand.
    • The identification of the elements can be improved much more with having useful details in place instead of only using the Indexes for the elements.
    • In the environment variables pane, they can add some grouping facility to divide the variables in the environment variables section.
    • Can improve the calculation stage for doing string operations using the VB commands instead of using code and inbuilt native functions to save time.

    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.

    Blue Prism Intelligent RPA

    Better User Interface.Better customer service.Easier to learn and use. But has greater risk compliances. Less preloaded automation. Less editing features and a big no while working on big projects. Fluidmesh is better in pricing and better management of multiple projects but I believe Blue Prism is perfect for beginners and small-scale companies.

    Return on Investment

    JMeter

    • Good ROI on improving the performance of the application.
    • Finding issues in the performance.
    • Benchmark the performance results.
    • CON: Need skillset to create and maintain the scripts in Java.
    • Scripts are reusable and it is executed by any user.
    • Need Client and Server setup to execute the scripts.

    • For a level of medium projects, Blue Prism performs well, and the speed of execution is good. In our organization, we are applying for medium projects, where we can increase the workforce of our employees.
    • Blue Prism's Client Server Architecture is good, because we need such a feature to implement automation.
    • When it comes to pricing, I personally feel that it is costlier.
