Here's the link to JAMON API
Apart from Jamon, there are many other profilers which can be used for testing the performance of a web application. JProfiler is one of them.

You can use Grinder

With jamon you can monitor all SQL calls, and all Servlets/JSPs without changing a line of your application code. You use the jamon jdbc proxy driver (which in turn can point to oracle), and the jamon servlet filter. Both of which are documented at - a fast, free open source performance tuning api.

Hi steve,

I have used JAMon.It's really nice tool(filter api). I like the report it generates.But my concern is to do stress testing. I want that my application gets N hits and I could check this N variable for performance.

I find one thing missing is JAMon is Datasource connectivity.Although I found way around to put things in code. Over all a very nice too.

I agree. Here's the link:
