Abstract

One important type of testing Web services compositions is load testing, as such applications solicit concurrent access by multiple users simultaneously. In this context, load testing of these applications seems an important task in order to detect problems under elevated loads. For this purpose, we propose a distributed and resource aware test architecture aiming to study the behavior of WS-BPEL compositions considering load conditions. The major contribution of this paper consists of (i) looking for the best node hosting the execution of each tester instance, then (ii) running a load test during which the composition under test is monitored and performance data are recorded and finally (iii) analyzing in a distributed manner the resulting test logs in order to identify problems under load. We also illustrate our approach by means of a case study in the healthcare domain considering the context of resource aware load testing.
