Abstract

In this paper, we present an approach for performance testing of web services in which we use abstract models, specified using Probabilistic Timed Automata, to describe how users interact with the system. The models are used in the load generation process to generate load against the system. The abstract actions from the model are sent in real-time to the system via an adapter. Different performance indicators are monitored during the test session and reported at the end of the process. We exemplify with an auction web service case study on which we have run several experiments.
