While Load continues to be maintained, the next generation is the TestMaker program.
Solex is a Web application testing tool built as a plug-in for the Eclipse IDE. Based on a built- in Web proxy and a concept of extraction, replacement, and assertion rules, Solex provides functions to record a client session, adjust it according to various parameters and replay it. This is typically done in order to ensure the non-regression of a Web application's behavior.
