Scapy is a powerful interactive packet manipulation tool, packet generator, network scanner, network discovery tool, and packet sniffer. It provides classes to interactively create packets or sets of packets, manipulate them, send them over the wire, sniff other packets from the wire, match answers and replies, and more. Interaction is provided by the Python interpreter, so Python programming structures can be used (such as variables, loops, and functions). Report modules are possible and easy to make. It is intended to do about the same things as ttlscan, nmap, hping, queso, p0f, xprobe, arping, arp-sk, arpspoof, firewalk, irpas, tethereal, tcpdump, etc.
tclwebtest is a tool to write automated tests for Web applications. It provides a simple API for issuing HTTP requests, dealing with the result, and assuming specific response values, while taking care of the details such as redirects and cookies. It has some basic HTML parsing functionality, to provide access to elements of the result HTML page that are needed for testing (mainly links and forms).
OpenLoad is an easy-to-use browser-based, rapid performance optimization solution for load and stress testing of dynamic Web sites. It uses IBM WebSphere and the DB2 Universal Database, and is fully integrated with IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer. It substantially minimizes the time and skill set required to optimize the performance of Web-based applications by simplifying the process of building real-world user scenarios, verifying expected functional behavior, and pinpointing performance bottlenecks within Web applications and IT infrastructure.
welofunc performer is a load test tool to support quality assurance of J2EE web applications. It features portability to all platforms with a Java virtual machine, an easy-to-use graphical user interface, the ability to record tests with a Web browser, and the ability to simulate an unlimited number of concurrent users. A rich set of test elements can be used to build your test plans, including HTTP requests, procedures and procedure calls, user think time, loops, and selectors.
RUBiS is an auction site modeled after eBay.com used to benchmark e-commerce Web site technologies. It is currently used to evaluate design patterns, application servers, and communication layers scalability. Several implementations using PHP, Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans (EB BMP, EB CMP, MDB, SB, EJB 2.0 CMP, Session Façade, etc.) are already available and new versions for JDO and .Net are currently developed.
Jaffa (Java Application Framework For All) is an enterprise-focused Java framework for rapid application development. It provides a complete Java Web application development stack, extending exsiting projects like Tomcat and Struts at the frontend with MVC-based web widgets, all the way through to a high-performance lightweight O/R persistence engine, with plenty of rich features in between including rules engines, declarative application, and data security. In addition to the runtime framework, there is a suite of component templates and other tools for rapid application development, including a TogetherSoft plug-in for UML intergration.
