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.

Pros

  • Jmeter scripts are good to be used for load and soak tests. This helps in analysing response times and throughput. For example for a particular application it would give response time for each transaction you perform like login, submitting information etc.
  • Jmeter has elements like listeners which helps us visualize results and helps us compare them. This helps in analyzing the results faster. For example to compare response times of different transactions
  • Jmeter is flexible and can be used to test any applications apart from Java. For example I tried to prepare scripts for SOAP and web service.

Cons

  • I would like to see the WebService (SOAP) functionality returned to JMeter. I don't mind the HTTP option update for this, but I still use previous versions with this option available.
  • I would like to see someone build a better, well-rounded documentation effort. I understand this is open source, but there are millions of users out there and at least one of them has some Technical Writing background.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

It has very powerful capabilities and for free!!! It's ease of use and installation and easy to get started are highlights. A lot of community support and youtube videos from JMeter developers to help you understand various functionalities within JMeter to support you. You can also leverage JMeter as a functional test tool for your service layer.
