Load Testing Rapide Applications with JMeter

We recently needed to perform some load testing for a Rapide application to simulate hundreds of users accessing a Rapide application on the same web server. To do this we used the Apache JMeter tool, which is a commonly used open source utility for load testing web applications.

With JMeter you can record a test script and then play it back, simulating the workload of many users.

There are some special considerations when recording a Rapide application, and these have been documented in a new user guide "Rapide Load Testing Guide" that is included in the latest Rapide 1.1 download.
