TestMaker is my open-source utility and framework for testing Web  
applications, services, and SOA for scalability, performance and  
reliability. TestMaker 4.4 is now available for immediate download.

The release notes and documentation for the new version are available  

The download (21.9 MB) is online at:

TestMaker 4.4 incorporates new features and bug fixes from 14  
volunteer contributors. The charting capability is completely  
changed. TestMaker shows live results when running a load test in  
XSTest. All the documentation and example test agent scripts have  
been rewritten. A single Ant build script creates all of TestMaker,  
including the full distribution. The new software incorporates many  
bug fixes: Log4J compatibility, removed unused jar files, fixed HTTP  
header value logging, fixed URL encoding problems, and problems  
running TestMaker scripts from the command-line.

TestMaker is the framework PushToTest uses to build performance and  
developer productivity tests. For instance, the SOA Performance Kit  
(http://dev2dev.bea.com/soa/toolkit.html) shows Java developers how  
to measure SOA scalability and performance and the FastSOA  
Performance Kit (http://www.xquerynow.com/library/fastsoa/) shows how  
to accellerate SOA performance using XML-centric technology. Both are  
built on TestMaker.

TestMaker uses JDOM for parsing Web Service responses and forming  
service requests so it is a nice environment to learn JDOM.
