Preparing to test a large volume of data is an important part of performance tests. Still, there are few efficient ways to do this work well, especially during the early part of the software development lifecycle. IBM® Jazz™ technology-based software is built on a RESTful, resource-oriented architecture, where a create, relieve, update, and delete operation can be implemented by using HTTP protocols. This article explains a method that leverages both IBM® Rational® Performance Tester and the Mozilla Firefox Poster plug-in. This method does not depend on product build changes and application interface changes, and it also provides better testing performance than other current approaches.
