Load Testing GWT applications

I need to implement Load Testing(say for some 20 users) on my GWT application running in tomcat server on my machine.
I am working on Ubuntu OS.

On googling, I find NeoTys that satisfies my requirement, but the trial version has few conditions:

1. It supports only Windows Users
2. the server shouldn't be localhost.

Can anyone provide some light on the possible tools out in the market that would meet my expectations?

Once a GWT application is compiled to JavaScript, it's really not any different from any Tomcat server. In other words, you can load test it the same way would load test any website.

Maybe the following blog post is interesting for you.

There I show a little how I did a load test on a GWT application with Selenium 2, Groovy and Gradle. All tools free and open source.

I've looked at Neoload
I had no issue recording my app on localhost. Maybe you can give a try to their new version?
I agree. Here's the link:
