Apache JMeter is open source software, a 100% pure Java desktop application, designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance of web sites. It was originally designed for load testing web applications but has since expanded to other test functions.

Apache JMeter may be used to test functional and performance both on static and dynamic resources (files, Servlets, Perl scripts, Java Objects, Data Bases and Queries, FTP Servers and more). It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyse overall performance under different load types. You can also use it perform a functional test on websites, databases, LDAPs, webservices etc.

In this course, you will gain in-depth knowledge of JMeter’s different functionalities. You will also be able to check the output of an application and understand various methodologies related to an application’s protection. This course is designed to help you become a qualified practitioner by intensified training in software efficiency verification best practices.
