Jmeter, a powerful performance testing tool from the Apache Jakarta project, can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object .This helps to test the strength or to analyze overall performance of the system under different load conditions.

It has a Full multithreading framework which allows concurrent sampling by many threads and simultaneous sampling of different functions by separate thread groups. It can test servers eg. Web Server – HTTP, HTTPS, Web Services – SOAP, JUnits, Database via JDBC. Jmeter based tests can be integrated into scheduled builds using build tool like Apache Ant.

Aim of penetration testing (pen-testing) is to break into an application while closely approximating an attacker’s behavior. Typical approaches that rely heavily on the usage of security tools produce only tool-based results, and may limit the effectiveness.

In order to closely approximate an attacker’s tactics, more of a mental shift, knowledge about the application, and motivation are required. This session tries to bridge that gap, and aims to discuss advanced and sophisticated steps to make the pen-testing effort more effective, and optimize the skills of the pen-tester and the tools.

In the semiconductor industry, Design For Testability (DFT) is an essential part of the architecture and design of components. Software designers on the other hand do not pay much (if any) attention to the testing needs of their code.

In this talk we review some core DFT principles like Built-In Self Test, Test Point Insertion, Fault Modeling and Fault Simulation and map them to software testing. Examples of using DFT to create testable software will be given. DFT fits in especially well with the increasing use of Test Automation and Agile Methodologies. Continue reading »
