Meet the “CRAY” of Testing - the JMeter Supercomputer Load is all about capacity and JMeter is a memory consuming beast.
Performance testing is a whole other animal in the world of good development. Read on for a brief journey to the wild side of testing. In functional testing, detailed requirements are needed that allow you to consider whether the issue found is a bug or a feature.

If it would be possible to develop web-applications without performance issues i.e. the Excalibur of development, the Arthurian developer of such an application would be crowned King of the Web Development Round Table. Unfortunately, the fantasy phrase “web-applications without performance issues” sounds....er...like a fantasy. Are you guilty of the one of these poisonous performance sins?
