Performance testing is one of the most common tasks in Web Service testing and probably one of the areas where the confusion is most common. Not so much in the tasks involved, but rather in the terminology. SoapUI unfortunately add to this confusion by calling the Performance Test functionality LoadTests and we tend to use one word for the other on occasion. We’ll try to give a short overview to Performance Testing here and what it means for Web Service Testing.
Use WebLOAD to run performance testing from the cloud by generating load from Amazon EC2 within minutes. With zero installation or setup you can generate load from multiple locations in the world, distribute load between cloud and on premise machines, and pay (Amazon, not us) based on your usage.
