This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I want to write a test harness for our servlets (running in Tomcat). I will need to configure the test harness to simulate various volumes of traffic calling our servlets and the rate they are called (burst, steady, etc). What is the best way to simulate user activity like that? Is there a tool (in Eclipse or otherwise) that can be built upon? A browser based solution (JSP, etc)?
