Today we’ll be testing several servers and software configurations to obtain summary test reports and compare the results. Let’s say for example we plan to open a new website with regular, ongoing streaming of data, images and video clips, for instance, a news site. In the process of planning the project, we decided to try two blog configurations in parallel.
Super Bowl Day, Are you ready? Are you really ready? The highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials….even the non-sports fanatics love this time of year.

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. However, in performance testing, it varies as one cannot specify “pass” or “fail”. You simply gather as much information as possible and provide it to the customer.

One option is to create a Bean Shell script in a separate file and to call it BeanShellSampler. But, it can be difficult to track the execution of various parts of such a complex scenario.
