A few days ago, I wrote a small utility program to help out stress test a client's web site. I wanted something small and simple, that I could send to (non-tech) clients and colleagues to allow them to run the tests from their own computers. Tonight, I tidied up the user interface a bit and packaget it for Java Web Start, so that the user only has to click on a WWW link to start the program. Once started, he or she only fills out an URL pointing to a file describing which URLs to stress test.
I haven't released the source yet (it's time to get some sleep), but I plan on doing that soon.
Oh, and it's available here.
On another note: anyone know who MikeLowe is (removed link, thanks ncm for pointing out my stupidity)? Seems to me he's just Google-whoring. Haven't seen that on Advogato before, is it common?
