Sun Unveils Software For Cross-Platform Testing

Sun Microsystems today released JavaLoad, a Java-written testing tool that lets developers and quality-assurance engineers load-test distributed client-server applications. According to one analyst, this is the first tool available for cross-platform testing.

The software creates a virtual user and measures the effects on the network of various activities performed by that user. The system then stores the test process and the collected information in a repository, so that tests can be repeated at any time. Developers also can pinpoint specific applications or development stages for targeted testing before deploying them. Because the software is written in Java, it is able to test both native and Java applications across platforms without requiring developers to learn another programming language.

"When you're running a server-side application, you want to be sure the performance is there, especially with Internet apps," said Tracy Corba, a senior analyst with Cahners In-Stat Group. Corba adds that being able to test across platforms could be key in moving managers toward deploying enterprise applications.

JavaLoad 1.0 is available now. Pricing starts at $75,000 for two consoles, five GUI virtual users, and 500 network virtual users.
