Hi all,

I want to test a core java application. I am currently using a java client main method to invoke the application for testing purposes.
What would be the best tool / approach to go about the same.
I have two requirements 1) to measure the application speed in single invocation mode. 2) simulate multiple invocations and verify application speed at various request levels

Let me know your thoughts on the same
