Load Testing 2.0 for Web 2.0: Simplifying performance validation for Rich Internet Applications
Web 2.0-enabled applications leveraging RIA technologies provide end users with a richer, faster, more interactive experience and reduce the time and resources required for organizations to deploy them. However, because of their unique ability to exchange small and granular amounts of data continually with a server, when thousands of users are interacting nearly continuously with an application, the strains on the back-end servers can be enormous.

Read this white paper to learn best practices for load testing that will help you make sure that they're ready.
