Like traditional load testing, component testing still requires support for specific protocols. The key difference is the ability to test early and test often, no longer waiting for an application presentation layer to become available but testing those services below the waterline as soon as they are ready.
Neoload supports testing Web and mobile applications based on or around the HTTP protocol, these range from bespoke applications and COTS packages such as Siebel or SAP to advanced features such as databases and messaging queues (via our JMS support). Details of these and other supported technologies can be found here.
Below you will find a few examples of how NeoLoad can be used in a typical continuous delivery pipeline to component test different technologies.
