Embarcadero Extreme Test
Embarcadero Extreme Test is a next-generation, goals-based performance testing solution for enterprise systems. Through its time-saving features, innovative approach to test creation, and open, standards-based architecture, Extreme Test enhances application integrity and gives IT professionals greater confidence in deploying and upgrading applications throughout the enterprise. Embarcadero Extreme Test uses a goals-based approach to performance testing, allowing performance managers and quality assurance (QA) professionals to not only test the load on a given application, but also to set thresholds and parameters on the test to ensure that the outcome meets all defined requirements. This ability dramatically accelerates the testing process as tests can be aborted once thresholds are exceeded. In addition, Extreme Test's User Model Editor helps automatically create more realistic user scenarios, which in turn helps generate more accurate and meaningful test results.
