WEBTESTE: A STRESS TEST TOOL

Hugo Saba, Eduardo Manuel de Freitas Jorge, Victor Franco Costa, Hernane Borges de Barros Pereira

Abstract

The usage of web applications has became a very common activity in the organizations’ scope. From the software engineering perspective, the incessant search for production of more robust softwares, with better quality, is a continuous requirement. The main purpose of this paper is to present the WebTeste, which is a test tool used to verify the robustness of a web application. After comparison of several simulation’s results, the use of distributed and ordered computers suggests more reliable tests. In addition, the analysis of the obtained results can suggest a new (re)design of a web system. The WebTeste could be used to perform stress test in order to verify the robustness of a web application more precisely.
