Overall Satisfaction with JMeter

Jmeter is used within our department for REST API Functional and non-functional test automation. It is fast and reliable and quite extensible, that's why we are using it. A single testing module can be made and very highly paramterized such that it would be executed many times with various parameters combinations. It is also easily integrated with Jenkins as a CI framework.
  • REST API Functional and Non-Functional Automated Testing.
  • Stress and Load Automated Testing.
  • Highly Parameterized Test Modules.
  • Excellent Integration with CI Frameworks such as Jenkins.
  • Documentation is not user-friendly, you may need quite an extensive amount of time to resolve an issue.
  • Post processing of page responses is not easy to understand and needs long time to learn, although quite powerful.
  • Time invested to on-board the application and understand its power, and be able to learn it, can be long.
  • Using Jmeter we were able to have an extensive reliable test suite.
  • Using Jmeter and Jenkins, Our test suite guarantees reliability of our API at all times - i.e. continuously.
  • Because Jmeter UI is not intuitive, not all our team members were willing to deal with it.
Jmeter is perfectly suited for REST API Automation, specifically Performance Testing, Stress and Load Testing.
