SoftLogica LLC announces WAPT 4.0, the new version of its load, stress and performance testing tool for web sites, web servers and applications with web interfaces. WAPT is designed to minimize the learning curve and give the user an ability to create a heavy load from a single regular workstation. You can create a basic test scenario and get meaningful information about your performance landscape in a matter of minutes. WAPT is able to generate up to 2000 simultaneously acting virtual users for an “average” test scenario using standard hardware configuration (Pentium 4 2GHz, 512MB RAM, Gigabit Ethernet). WAPT creates a test workload which is virtually the same as the load experienced by a web site in the real world. For example, for retail sites, some users may be surfing the catalog, others searching for a specific product and submitting an order, while an administrator may be updating the catalog. Basic and Integrated Windows (NTLM) authentication methods are supported. Graphs and reports are shown in real-time, thus helping to manage the web site performance testing process. The command line interface allows you to integrate WAPT into the existing development environment. XML files are used to store test scenarios and can be modified by third party software. WAPT supports different language encodings, so you can test web sites in virtually any language, including forms and dynamic content. WAPT is designed for Microsoft Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003. The 30-day trial version with full set of features limited to 20 concurrent virtual users can be downloaded at
