I would like to know the standard, reliable way to test a serlvet/jsp/jdbc based web application before put into production.
One of the tests might be simulating stress on web application.
(i.e) Many user requests for the application at almost real time.
Also benchmarking the load on the application etc.
Can any one give a good way to test web application? Any useful websites/links/tutorials/books etc is also ok. Heard Apache's JMeter is one such tool. But haven'e used it.
Your experience will be very helpful!
Thanks a lot!

maha Anna I think you are not supposed to do testing.Are you?
I think the company you are working in would not rather should not waste your talent by alloting you this task.
Anyhow we used "JTest" and "TestTrackPro" testing tools.Know this much only b'cos ven't done testing as such.

Thank you Nirmal, Wolfgang.
Thanks for your kind words. I posted this to gain knowledge. It is always good to update our knowledge in all aspects of software development life cycle. Even if we are not directly involved in testing, it may be helpfule to help others.
