Abstract [en]

Software Testing plays a key role in Software Development. There are two approaches to software testing i.e. Manual Testing and Automated Testing which are used to detect the faults. There are numbers of automated software testing tools with different purposes but it is always a problem to select a software testing tool according to the needs. In this research, the author compares two software testing tools i.e. Apache JMeter and HP LoadRunner to determine their usability and efficiency. To compare the tools, different parameters were selected which guide the tool evaluation process. To complete the objective of the research, a scenario-based survey is conducted and two different web applications were tested. From this research, it is found that Apache JMeter got an edge over HP Loadrunner in different aspects which include installation, interface and learning.
