Load Testing with Progress 4GL
Anyone using a load testing tool with applications developed in Progress 4GL?
Re: Load Testing with Progress 4GL
Most all load testing tools are more or less language agnostic. It's the protocol that matters. So your business logic might use Progress but that is just one part of the application architecture - you need to analyse the whole stack to decide which approach is best for you.
Let me take a punt. You have a wizzy all singing, all dancing App server using SOA which is talking to a RDBMS with a couple of BPM servers thrown in. In front of all this you have mayyybe Apache? And the end user interacts using a browser?
None of that really matters (that's not strictly true but for basic load testing it is) except for the last part - how do the (many) clients communicate to the (one) server. This is the starting point for tool selection.
If HTTP then fine, good, loads of options - focus on your requirements and choose a tool and approach to meet them.
If not HTTP then you are a little more limited and need to be more specific in your search.
