Description

This introductory course is designed to familiarize testing professionals with the basics of the IBM Rational performance testing tool. Testers can build, enhance, and run scripts in a full-function Java IDE that integrates with IBM Rational Software Development Platform products. In addition to class lecture, students will be asked to complete labs to reinforce critical concepts and tool functionality. The focus is on the practical application of Performance Tester to resolve common performance testing challenges.
