While looking for a good performance-testing tool, I stumbled upon WAPT and got immediately attracted by its user-friendly design. This tool gives you freedom to generate a load, which stands pretty close to real life users.
As I went on evaluating this tool for my own requirements, I thought my research would come handy for those who are looking for something similar. And hence this post.

Both variants offer very user friendly GUI which helps to record and debug test scripts with minimum effort. WAPT allows you to record any kind of web application using desktop browser or mobile browser.

You click on the record button and can go through the user actions. But the interesting part of WAPT comes after recording. Zero coding or very little coding is required and almost all actions are included as functions. Hmm… nice!

For example, the “Ordered List” function returns the values in the list one by one where as “Random from list” function will return random lines from the list of values…
