This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
I need to write a MultiThreaded Java Application that will be used to load test the MMS Server. Transactions starts when the MMS server indicates to my MultiThreaded Java Application that a MMS has arrived on the server and then i need to download the attachment that is part of the of the MMS from the MMS server using the protocol supported by the MMS Server. Once is successfully download the attachment, then it marks the completion of the Transaction, Since its a load testing application for the MMS Server, the expected TPS is above 1400 TPS, hence i need to provide the hardware requirements for this application, I feel that i need a horizontal scaling along with a load balancer and a network connectivity in GBPS to download attachments. If i have 2 boxes, then each box has to handle 700 TPS , is it feasible for a multi-threaded java application deployed on a Solaris box to achieve this performance of 700 TPS. Please let me know your thoughts from a architecture, hardware and it will be helpful if i can get suggestion on which Solaris hardware needs to be considered. I have Solaris T5220 in my mind.

Why write something from scratch? Why not just use JMeter or Grinder, they provide a convenient multi-threaded load testing framework within which you could place your custom come to call the MMS server.
