I haven't used any other tools to be able to compare to [Apache] JMeter, but my experience with using [Apache] JMeter has been excellent and I did not have any negative points in my experience. Moreover, [Apache] JMeter is almost the standard tool for performance and load testing and therefore has a huge community that can answer pretty much any questions you may have about the tool[.]

Generally speaking, it's the most powerful tool if you're working with soap services. It's well suited to be used to automate daily time-consuming tasks that rely mainly on soap services, by using groovy scripts that can help add an unlimited set of functionality like creating test data, verifying test data, and adding documents through soap services to requests. It's not very appropriate to be used with RESTful services since there are more powerful tools that provide a wider range of functionalities.

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.

  • Ease of use (ability to automatically import API definitions, Jenkins integration for running in the pipeline).
  • Detailed test reports (allow to easily identify weak spots during both functional and performance testing).
  • One platform for all tests (allows to closely couple and reuse existent tests).

Cons

JMeter

  • Naming convention of transaction scenarios in the jmeter dashboard could be improved.
  • Think time and pause time could be explained effectively.
  • Increase the RAM usage from tool itself rather than going into the bit files and changing it for accommodating a higher number of users and machines.
  • Limited access to help
  • Improve GUI of tool

ReadyAPI (formerly SoapUI Pro, LoadUI Pro, & ServiceV Pro)

  • Needs good documentation
  • Need to improve the performance of the tool
  • Setup is very complex and for such [a] commercial tool, it should easy and straightforward
  • Tool says it supports security testing but in reality, it is not at an extensive level.

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

The only reason this isn't a '10' is because of the cost. This product is definitely meant for organizations who are serious about making sure they invest in the full ecosystem of API design, development, maintenance. But there is a significant cost associated with this investment. and because of this cost (and the non-tangible output for executives), it is a difficult line-item to justify in this post-pandemic environment.

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.

SOAP UI was mainly developed to test SOA-based application which is majorly SOAP-based web services, SOAP UI works well with SOAP services which are XML-based and when you work with SOAP UI for some time you will understand that it is meant to test SOAP services predominantly.

Soap UI has managed to continuously build on it's solid foundation and keep improving by each release. It is by far the most dependable and accurate testing tool out there of its kind. Available via connecting to VM's created as SoapUI test machines give access to it anytime, anywhere practically.

It has an excellent GUI design and the reporting mechanism is also very
good. It does consume a lot of memory though during concurrent testing.

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.

To be honest, we didnt had much issues with the support, as there is already plenty of online communities available for help. But if ever there were some minor issues with the membership or the certificates, the tech support was always quick and efficient enough to resolve the issue ASAP

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.

ReadyAPI provides intuitive GUI capabilities compared to their own open source product. When compared to Postman, ReadyAPI also supports SOAP based services, which is a saver especially when integrating with legacy or other third party systems.

good. It does consume a lot of memory though during concurrent testing. However, I have read that added monitoring tools have been added, which if so the 7 could possibly go to a 8 or 9.

Return on Investment

JMeter

  • It helped to estimate resources required for a particular client requirement. For example if the client wants the application to be used by 500 users for 1 hour, based on the load test we perform for 500 users and 1 hour we recommend resources and their capabilities.
  • Jmeter was used to identify bottleneck. This would lead to better performance.
  • Jmeter was used to identify failures as well.

  • Very quick regression testing, hence having the testing results very soon, even the same day of deployment
  • for same above reason, it can save money for corporation (so no tedious, costly and erroneous manual testings)
  • The test reports are compatible with TestNG, so the corporation can integrate the reports in our Autamation frameworks such as Allure or Jira Zephyr
