Specific tool research for a mid sized organisation
Currently I am researching the automated software testing tools market for WWW applications. I am working with a client (as part of an educational degree) to find solution which meets their requirements, however being new to the topic I was wondering if there are any very decent tools which provide maximum functionality (i.e. functional testing, load testing, unit testing) and yet are economically suitable for a mid sized company trading online?
We all know about companies like segue, mercury etc, which provide lovely tools but cost a fortune.
Any input and possible help in short listing tools which I might be able to research and analyse would be much appreciated
Re: Specific tool research for a mid sized organisation
whatever tool you will be buying, keep in mind that you pay for what you get. There are a lot of small and simple tools ot thre but you are looking for one tool that does it all. If it would exist, probably everyone would be using it. So far the warning. Does this mean there is no solution? No but you will have to be very carefull when defining the requirements for your tool and it's possible you will need 2 or 3 tools to do the job.
Have a look at www.opensta.org for a performance tool. And, if you realy have a lower budget you could have a look at Rationals Visual test for functional testing.
