Dear All

Any suggestion for choosing good free/commercial stress and performance testing tool for application server?

Walter,
While this is about tools, I'm going to move it to the Performance forum. You also might try running a search in that forum to get some ideas/feedback on tools.

I have used the HttpClient toolkit to simulate web server loads. It is just a toolkit for emulating a browser type client - you will have to provide the main program and script for a complete test.

I've heard good things about JMeter. You might also want to do a search in the Testing forum...

Jmeter's simple to setup and use. You do have to read about 4 pages of intro to understand how it works, not just start the GUI and go, but once you understand what it's all about, no problem.
