Thank you for the invitation to the Conference Coding Serbia to talk about performance testing of web applications.
Performance of web applications is a crucial dissatisfier for users and thus an important quality criteria — also used by Google to rank their result lists. As with other quality aspects, performance testing cannot be done at the end of a project but is an integral part of the development process.
The presentations explains web performance testing along a practical example in order to better understand and judge cause and effect of behavior observed. Usually few causes have a disproportionate effect on bad performance. In addition, it is important to understand diverse load and test scenarios to optimize application behavior.
Core of the talk is a demo that uses Proxy Sniffer, a load test tool I like a lot because of its flexibility and it’s simpleness to use. In this short Screencast I show a full roundtrip of a test: Demo for talk „Load testing of Web Applications“.
And here comes the presentation (Download : Testing of Web Applications [PDF, 6MB]):
