Hi all, I'm being put in charge of automated testing for our web-based J2EE application, and I'm looking at some open source stuff for it. Has anyone use JMeter, and if you have, is it comparable to Load Runner? Thanks.
Apache Jmeter is right choice if your project looks for open source load testing. It is not exactly equal to load runner , But Jmeter also generates
load .,,. you have to compromise some of the things like generating detailed report etc.. as it is open source.
I am using it since 3 years, it helps me detecting performance errors very quickly.
Remember, though, that simulating more than 300 users from a single computer, while trying to provide real load on the target computer, is usually a bad choice. Yes, it is feasible, however you will usually get an artificially low impression of the load that can truly be handled, as the computer doing the testing will be under load itself.

It's a choice. The right choice depends on what you are doing.

JMeter is quite capable of generating detailed reports. The reports can (and should be) generated after the load test is complete. It is even possible to generate reports from within a Continuous Integration Engine such as Jenkins.
