PinoyJUG JMeter meetup

The Association of Filipino Java Developers(PinoyJUG) had a meetup last February 26, 2010. It was held at fifth floor of Orange & Bronze Software Labs, Inc. office.

The meetup was about Performance testing and JMeter. Apache JMeter is open source software, a 100% pure Java desktop application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing Web Applications but has since expanded to other test functions.

The speakers were Brian Tanseng, president and CEO of 98Labs Inc. and JM Ibanez, a software architect from Orange & Bronze Software Labs. Brian's topic was Introduction to JMeter. He covered basic terminologies, setup, distributed testing and interpreting results. JM discussed the RMI Plugin for JMeter he developed. The plugin is open-source and allows developers to leverage JMeter's GUI and infrastructure for load testing to also load test RMI-based client-server applications.
