Why are all these other testing tools(Mercury, Segue, RSW) so pricey compared to RadView's WebLoad. From what I see and understand WebLoad has just as much functionality and features, if not more, than any of these other tools(for A LOT less money). Can someone give some answers to why this is, maybe I'm missing something.
They handle everything for you, and remove you from a lot of the details of the load test.
I have used Webload for some time, and it is not perfect, but for the cost it is GREAT. You do need to spend some time understanding how the language works, it also helps to be patient and have a good environment for testing (production like environment)
You can download an eval from them and play with it.
