I’m going to admit one or two things right upfront: I am today not a big fan of HP LoadRunner. I was fan of the Mercury product back in the 90s but it was more by lack of other option to load test client/server application than anything else. I’ve never been a big fan of HP either, their hardware or software. They always felt clumsy or aging compare to the competition. So yes, this article is a bit biased but I’m a bit angry at HP right now and I’ve got to share my feelings with my fellow colleagues in the software and performance testing community.
