I have to do performance tests on an application made with Oracle Forms.
Thing is, I have no budget for LoadRunner or Robot, so Im afraid only OpenSTA is an option. However is it possible to test Oracle Forms with OpenSTA.
A Google search didnt turn up much, some say it can be done, but I tried recording a simple script and after playback I have no extra record in my database.
From a load generation standpoint, it is almost irrelevant what technologies your server is using. The only thing you really care about is the method of communication between client and server, as you will need to simulate many clients using your load test tool of choice. OpenSTA does HTTP (and SSL) only, so if you are testing a web application, it will work perfectly, since HTTP is the protocol you are interested in. JMeter would also work in that case (although OpenSTA is much more scalable).
