New LoadUI by SmartBear Brings JavaFX 2 Power to LoadUI Community

Game Changing LoadUI 2.5 Load Testing Tool Supports JavaFX 2, Increases Speed by 50% and Improves Usability and Stability
Beverly, Mass. — March 27, 2013 — SmartBear Software, provider of software quality tools used by more than one million developers and testers worldwide, today released a new version of LoadUI. Version 2.5 is a game changing load testing tool that built on the JavaFX 2 platform and is designed to enable application developers to easily create rich internet applications (RIAs) that behave consistently across multiple platforms. Available in both open source and Pro editions, LoadUI 2.5 runs up to 50% faster with improved usability and stability.
“Being one of the first to embrace JavaFX 2, LoadUI 2.5 sets a new performance benchmark pioneered by previous versions,” said Henrik Olsson, Product Owner of LoadUI, SmartBear Software. “Together with stability and design enhancements, this new version offers a significant advantage for the DevOps community who need to create, configure and redistribute load tests more quickly and more interactively.”
The freeware version, LoadUI 2.5, is part of SmartBear’s recently announced freeware initiative and is a fully functional and open source tool that caters to the needs of the open source community. The paid version, LoadUI Pro 2.5, targets enterprise and professional development communities with features that include server monitoring, distribution of load tests, comparison of test runs, raw data export and professional support.
“Both versions are fully functional and standalone,” said Henrik Olsson. “The additional Pro features are based on extensive user surveys we conducted to gauge the needs of the open source and professional user communities. We want to always provide the version with the right balance of features needed.”
