Quick Start Guide and Tutorial for IBM © Rational Performance Tester © – SOA (Web Service) Performance Test Projects
The document downloadable at the bottom of this article is a primer to let you start with the IBM© Rational Performance Tester© (in the following RPT) and just scratch the surface of the product; for more details I suggest to look at online IBM documentation or check-out the IBM© Redbooks© publications: (https://www.redbooks.ibm.com/).
The only prerequisite is to have installed on Windows a working copy of the trial version downloadable from IBM © web site: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/r/rpt/.
In this tutorial we do not deal with platform installation that should be found in the IBM© Knowledge Center: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ just search for product name.
In the guide we will use a public available web service: http://www.w3schools.com/webservices/tempconvert.asmx.
Here we do not want to assess in any way the performance and/or the availability and/or stability or any other characteristic of the program (web service) considered.
Using this guide you agree to not use the information here reported to offend and/or damage in any way the program (web service) and/or any other software/hardware considered.
