Subject JMeter :: TCP Programs :: Testing ['Watchdog': checked]
Date Tue, 09 Dec 2003 11:54:37 GMT

Dear All,

I have a web system, running on Apache + JServ and Applets at the bottom
The  web (upper frame in html) communicates with Apache server on standard
http port.
The Applets (Lower frame in html) communicates to my TCP server programs on
a different port.

The Applets, sends a series of java requests(events) to the TCP server
program (java socket program)
which handles the event and processes it and broadcasts the results.

For example,
Consider a chat system, where the client is an Applet, which sends series
of Chat events to a Chat Server(say TCP socket prg.)
and the Chat server handles those events and broadcasts it to all connected

I am in a position to test the Load of this programs, By simulating say
1000 users sending/receiving events to and from the server.
Will this kind of Simulation test possible using JMeter ?
Do I need to write my own programs for testing this kind of System ?
Can I extend JMeter's functionality to generate such TCP requests (Sending
series of Java Objects) ?

Your inputs please.
