Blazemeter at the crossroads with JMeter

Giving back to the project that spawned their company, Blazemeter offer a new free plug-in for deeper analytics testing

The company behind load testing cloud tool BlazeMeter have announced the release
of a plugin for Apache JMeter, the inspiration for their spinoff

In a move that is giving back to the Apache project which
spawned the advanced load-stress analyser with a cloud flavour,
BlazeMeter will provide a free commercial-grade tool to the
developers using JMeter. This means they can reap the rewards
BlazeMeter offers, looking deeper into how their web application
deals with load testing. With Blazemeter’s hosted cloud
application, JMeter developers can compare reports,
metrics and KPIs.

Crossover between the two is also possible as you
can easily integrate BlazeMeter’s advanced cloud-based
reporting and test management tools directly on their JMeter
desktop software. JMeter has been around since 2001 at the Apache
Software Foundation, but things have progressed somewhat in web
applications in what customers want to ascertain.

“These powerful analytics tools help developers compare
reports, metrics and KPIs, easily collaborate to fix bugs and
quickly bring applications into production,” said Alon Girmonsky,
Founder & CEO of BlazeMeter. “With the new plug-in, all test
related data is automatically uploaded to a hosted cloud
application. Developers can view and compare test results with
previous test runs. They can share their reports with co-workers
and save them for further analysis at a later time.”

Companies currently ‘blazing it’ include ITV, Toyota and Logica.
It’s nice to see a company spawned through an open source project
give back to the community that paved the way. You can download
