Load Testing 2.0 for Web 2.0: Simplifying performance validation for Rich Internet Applications
Web 2.0-enabled applications that leverage RIA technologies provide end users with a richer, faster, more interactive experience and can be deployed quickly at a low cost. However, because of their unique ability to continually exchange granular data with a server, when thousands of users are interacting with an application, the strain on the back-end servers and networks can be overwhelming.
Given the potential peak demands of these next‑generation applications, it is wise to approach new Web 2.0 innovations with caution and proper testing. Read this white paper to learn best practices for testing that will help you ensure that your Ajax or other RIA technologies will provide enterprise-scale performance and availability.
