Apache JMeter is open source Java desktop software designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing Web Applications but has since expanded to other test functions.

Apache JMeter can be used to test functional and performance both on static and dynamic resources (Web – HTTP, HTTPS, SOAP, Database via JDBC, LDAP, JMS, Mail – POP3(S) and IMAP(S)). It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. You can also use it perform a functional test on websites, databases, LDAPs, Web Services etc. JMeter looks like multiple browsers but JMeter does not perform all the browser supported actions. It doesn’t execute the Javascript found in HTML pages or render the HTML pages as a browser does. JMeter can be extended with plugins for load statistics, data analysis or visualization.
