Prolifics Testing developed a comprehensive plan, to include the key business transaction scenarios for each of the applications to be tested for performance.
The test coverage was reviewed with each of the core application test owners who were responsible for the applications.
Existing performance test assets were then collated and additional tests were developed where needed. This was done so as to attain the level of coverage needed for each of the applications.
The scripts for all the business transactions were developed using JMeter.
Framework Setup and Training
All JMeter scripts were developed against a standard framework, including code comments, data handling comments with full supporting documentation on maintaining and running the tests within the framework. Once ready, a full day training session was run for each of the core application teams on general performance testing and on JMeter tool, before a individual handover and JMeter setup was delivered for each of the core application team owners.
