Packt is pleased to announce the release of Performance Testing with JMeter 2.9, a practical, hands-on guide that equips readers with all the essential skills needed to effectively use JMeter to test web applications.

About the Author:
Bayo Erinle is a software engineer with over 9 years of experience in designing, developing, testing, and architecting software. He has worked in various areas of the IT field including government, finance, and healthcare. He has also been involved in the planning, development, implementation, integration, and testing of numerous applications, including multi-tiered, standalone, distributed, and cloud-based applications.

JMeter 2.9 is an Apache project that can be used as a load testing tool for analyzing and measuring the performance of a variety of services with a focus on web applications. It is a Java application that was originally designed solely for testing web applications, but it has since grown and expanded to provide other test functions.

Performance Testing with JMeter 2.9 begins with the fundamentals of performance testing and gets readers acquainted with JMeter. It then guides the reader through recording realistic and maintainable scripts. Readers will also learn how to work with tools such as Vagrant, Puppet, and AWS, allowing them to leverage the cloud to aid in distributed testing.

The eBook will teach readers how to do some BeanShell scripting as well as how to take advantage of regular expressions, JMeter properties, and extension points to build comprehensive and robust test suites. Also, it will teach developers how to test RESTful web services and how to deal with XML, JSON, file downloads/uploads, and much more.

This eBook is primarily for developers, quality assurance engineers, testers, and test managers who are new to Apache JMeter. It is also beneficial for those who simply want to learn how to effectively use and become proficient with Apache JMeter 2.9.

GIMP 2.8 for Photographers: Image Editing with Open Source Software

Image editing is a crucial element in the photographic workflow. Image editing tools, most notablyPhotoshop, are usually sophisticated and deep applications, and are fairly expensive. The only open source tool in this market is the GIMP, which has developed into a powerful, multiplatform system running on Linux,Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.

GIMP 2.8 for Photographers is a beginner’s guide to the only open source image editing tool that provides a no-cost alternative to expensive programs such as Photoshop. Topics include the new user interface and tools, the basics of image editing and simple adjustments, advanced techniques using layers and masks, developing RAW images, working with the improved text tool, and preparing high-quality black-and-white images. The most important editing functions are presented in individual, easy-to-follow workshops. A bonus section on the included DVD describes special techniques for web graphics.

GIMP 2.8 for Photographers has evolved from classroom materials that the author developed and taught in courses and workshops on image editing with the GIMP.
