Window based application testing through Jmeter
can we test desktop or window based application too through Jmeter apart from web based application testing. Please suggest me.
Re: Window based application testing through Jmeter
JMeter could be used if your application makes HTTP Requests to a server. JMeter can also be used to load test a database directly. The way JMeter records is through a proxy, so actions it sees is purely what goes out on the network. Client-side operations are not seen by JMeter. Hope this is useful.
Re: Window based application testing through Jmete
it depends on what "windows based application" means in your context. If it is a standalone application, then JMeter will not be useful since it is used for loading servers. If it is a client/server application, then the important factor is knowing the protocol the windows client uses to communicate with the server. If it is HTTP or another supported protocol, you are all set.
