What we learned so far

  • In our study, we used Gatling as our load and performance testing tool.
  • We have concluded that to use the Gatling software, JDK8 or later versions must be installed in the system.
  • We also concluded that Gatling is open source and free, and can be easily downloaded from its official website www.gatling.io

Software Used

  • Windows 10
  • JDK8
  • Gatling
  • Mozilla Firefox
