YourKit Java Profiler is a CPU and memory profiler that makes it easy to solve wide range of CPU- and memory-related performance problems. It features automatic leak detection, powerful tools for the analysis of memory distribution, an object heap browser, comprehensive memory tests as part of your JUnit testing process, extremely low profiling overhead, transparent deobfuscation support, and integration with Eclipse, JBuilder, IntelliJ IDEA, NetBeans, and JDeveloper IDEs.
Feed4JUnit makes it easy to write parameterized tests for the JUnit framework and feed them with predefined or randomly generated test data: test case data can be read from Excel or CSV files, databases, or custom data sources, and equivalence class tests can be defined easily. Setup is based on Java annotations and is easy to learn, apply, and maintain. Annotations defined in the "Bean Validation" JSR 303, Java 7, and Benerator are automatically recognized and generated smoke test data will match the constraints. By connecting to Benerator, you can configure generation of complex valid and invalid data sets.
LANforge is a unified multi-protocol network traffic generation and WAN emulation application. It allows users to generate real world customer traffic in a controllable manner. The WAN emulator allows the injection of latency and other network oddities like dropped, duplicated, and re-ordered packets. LANforge includes a drag-and-drop virtual network builder that supports virtual routers, WAN links, traffic-generating nodes, and more. It provides a scriptable command line interface with Perl libraries as well as a graphical user interface.
CMake is a cross-platform, open-source build system. It is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. It generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice. CMake is quite sophisticated: it is possible to support complex environments requiring system configuration, pre-processor generation, and code generation.
The Java Engine for Testing (JET) is a system for running distributed automated tests. It has been used by Sun for testing the High Availability DataBase (HADB), JavaDB, PostgreSQL, Memcached, and the MySQL Cluster Manager. JET should be a good way to write your tests if the product you want to test is distributed or has a client/server architecture, if it is natural for you to write the tests in Java, and if you want to invest time in developing tests and abstractions for later reuse.
DUMA (Detect Unintended Memory Access) stops your program on the exact instruction that overruns (or underruns) a malloc() memory buffer. GDB will then display the source-code line that causes the bug. It works by using the virtual-memory hardware to create a red-zone at the border of each buffer: touch that, and your program stops. It can catch formerly impossible-to-catch overrun bugs. DUMA is a fork of Bruce Perens' Electric Fence library.
high-resolution-timer is a library with Java and C++ wrappers to implement high resolution timers. These timers can be used, for example, to count the ticks when doing performance analysis. This library exploits the system dependent timers/clocks and provides a timer-like interface to the same. The attached file has build scripts for Linux and Solaris. There is also a Java wrapper over the library, which uses JNI to use the timer interfaces.
