This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
PureLoad is a Java-based performance testing and analysis tool that helps application developers by automating the process of stress testing their server applications. Statistics are used to analyze the bottlenecks in the system, primarily the performance, scalability, and quality characteristics. It can generate load to measure services such as Web servers (HTTP/HTTPS), databases (JDBC), mailservers (SMTP/POP3/IMAP), news-servers (NNTP), and many more. A simple API documentation is included for easy development of new features. Please feel free to download the trial/view details from: http://www.codework.com/pureload/index.htm
