Neotys Announces NeoLoad 3.1; First Load Testing Solution to Support New « Push » Technologies

Newly Enhanced Version Now Supports Adobe RTMP, AJAX Push, Java Serialization

Merrimack, NH – June 21, 2010 – Neotys, a leader in easy-to-use, cost effective load testing tools for web applications today announced NeoLoad 3.1, the first test solution on the market to incorporate support for new push technologies such as Adobe RTMP, Ajax Push and Java Serialization. NeoLoad 3.1 also offers new features to improve the design, execution and analysis of load test campaigns.

Previous versions of NeoLoad supported major RIA technologies such as Ajax, Adobe Flex, GWT and Silverlight. NeoLoad release 3.1 takes the next step in testing web applications by allowing users to load test the latest and most advanced development technologies, just months after their release. NeoLoad now includes support for the newest « Push » data exchange protocols such as such Adobe RTMP, LightStreamer and ICEfaces. These innovative protocols provide greater fluidity and interaction with web applications that integrate rich content (flash, video, sound) as they offer enhanced capabilities for data exchange with better interoperability.

NeoLoad 3.1 also offers significant new capabilities such as automatic handling of dynamic parameters, easier transaction modeling and preset monitoring thresholds with real time alerts. These features improve the speed and effectiveness of load testing campaigns. A new Java serialization module has also been added to record and replay applications using the Java object serialization over HTTP. This module is fully compatible with the spring remote framework.

« One of Neotys’ key goals has always been to support the most recent technologies and new development environments, » said Benoit Derouet, cofounder of Neotys. « Early on we focused on incorporating the latest RIA technologies and solutions for rapid application development as these leading edge technologies came to market. We are committed to continued innovation as evidenced by today’s support for the latest push technologies and will continue to provide solutions that improve the quality and reliability of web applications. »

Other Key Features NeoLoad 3.1:

  • Parameters framework: automates the extraction and injection of dynamic parameters within the application. The engine variabilization feature has been improved to include more comprehensive injection rules, support for binary protocols and the provision of pre-configured frameworks.
  • Shared Elements: provides a set of business transactions and a pool for all virtual profiles. In this latest version, when changes are made to initial script, updates occur automatically.
  • Thresholds alerts: sets monitoring thresholds for a very large number of parameters (CPU, servers, memory,) and automatically generates alerts as a threshold is met. This feature helps detect anomalies and extract key information during trouble shooting. This feature helps detect software or hardware resources which are becoming saturated during a load test. This proactive monitoring saves time in finding and alleviating bottlenecks.

NeoLoad 3.1 is available now and can be tested free for 30 days with a trial version download from the Neotys website. The cost for a 250 virtual user permanent license with the FLEX protocol is $22,826. Monthly rental for the same configuration costs $6,024. Additional pricing is also available on the website.
