We performed a comparison between Apache JMeter and Oracle Application Testing Suite based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Performance Testing Tools solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"We are using it just for load testing. We are using its free version, and it is scalable."
"A lot of things are valuable. It is free. It has a lot of features, such as report generation and integration with CI/CD, which makes it very competitive with the other paid solutions available in the market. It is a good solution."
"The metrics part of it and the ability to write your custom code to do some specific tests in the performance testing space are the most valuable features."
"It is easy to set up."
"It is scalable. You can scale up to 1,000 users in JMeter. If you can put up four slave servers, you can easily ramp up to 1,000 users."
"The solution is scalable."
"JMeter lets us generate virtual users and T-load, per our requirements. It's easy to configure and adjusting the virtual users according to the DPS we want to achieve."
"The solution has good transition controllers and distributed testing."
"The most valuable feature is the object identification feature."
"Oracle Application Testing Suite's most valuable feature is it works very smoothly with all Oracle Java-based applications."
"The graphics are very intuitive and it's very easy to get scale of development."
"In this tool, automation in general is almost non-existent. Everything is done manually."
"Apache should have a graphic interface."
"The solution is not user-friendly, there is no framework for autocorrelation or parameterization."
"Until now, JMeter is not supporting most of the protocols."
"The solution's setup could be easier and security could be improved to minimize vulnerabilities."
"If JMeter could provide a web version of editing, that would be good."
"At present, if the number of virtual users increases beyond 10,000 when testing, then it results in a Java heap which causes the solution to crash."
"The memory utilization in JMeter is very poor."
"Oracle Application Testing Suite could improve by offering desktop-based application automation. It is lacking in this area at the moment."
"Oracle Application Testing Suite does encounter some lag. When I am trying to record something, the tool gets stuck."
"Licensing policies could be more intuitive."
Apache JMeter is an open-source Java application that tests load and functional behavior and performance in applications. Created initially to test web applications, it has expanded its functionality to test other functions. For instance, you can test a server to see how efficiently it works and how many user requests can be handled simultaneously.
You can use JMeter to test functional performance and regression tests on different technologies. This Java desktop application has an easy-to-use graphical interface which uses the Swing graphical API. You can run JMeter on any environment that accepts a Java virtual machine, such as Windows, Linux, and Mac.
What protocols does JMeter support?
How does JMeter work?
JMeter sends requests to a target server by simulating a group of user requests. Then it collects and calculates statistics on the performance of the target. This target can be a server or an application.
There are two main tests you can carry out with JMeter: load test and stress test. The load test models expected usage of a server by simulating multiple users accessing the web server simultaneously. The stress testing aims to find the maximum load capacity of the server or application.

Reviews from Real Users
Stephen B., I.T. Architect, Analyst, and Developer at an educational organization, says, "The scripting ability is most valuable. It is easy to use. There is a UI, and you can go in there and figure those things out. After you've got a good set of tests, you basically have a scripted document that you can grab and execute in a pipeline. It is pretty quick to set up, and you can scale it and version control it."
"I like the fact that JMeter integrates well with other tools," adds the Founder and Principal Consultant at a tech services company.
A Quality Engineering Delivery Leader at a financial services firm says, “The performance of the solution is excellent. They have designed the product so that it is very easy to configure. You can basically do anything you like with the product. It's not very restrictive. We like the fact that the technology is open-source.”
Apache JMeter is ranked 1st in Performance Testing Tools with 41 reviews while Oracle Application Testing Suite is ranked 10th in Performance Testing Tools with 3 reviews. Apache JMeter is rated 7.4, while Oracle Application Testing Suite is rated 7.4. The top reviewer of Apache JMeter writes "It's a free, scalable tool that's good for checking backend services". On the other hand, the top reviewer of Oracle Application Testing Suite writes "Very compatible with Oracle Forms and the object identification feature is very valuable, but the tool does lag from time to time". Apache JMeter is most compared with Postman, BlazeMeter, Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional, Tricentis NeoLoad and ReadyAPI, whereas Oracle Application Testing Suite is most compared with Tricentis Tosca, Micro Focus UFT One, Selenium HQ, Micro Focus LoadRunner Cloud and Katalon Studio.
