Eggplant Launches Open Source Communities Initiative

Releases Eggplant Performance for JMeter & Eggplantium for Selenium

London, & Boulder, Colo, September 6, 2018, Eggplant, the provider of user-centric, intelligent testing and performance solutions, today announced the launch of its open-source communities initiative with the release of two products to help the JMeter and Selenium communities benefit from its groundbreaking Digital Automation Intelligence suite. These products will help the communities accelerate test automation and keep up with the pace of DevOps.

Eggplant Performance for JMeter is a fully functional version of Eggplant’s load testing solution that can be used with JMeter Test Plans. Eggplant Performance adds strong test composition, environment management, dynamic control, and result analytics to JMeter’s existing scripting capability.

Eggplantium is a simple way to run Selenium WebDriver scripts against mobile devices. It is simple to set up, provides a robust connection to all mobile devices, extended control including screen rotation and hardware buttons, and a VNC connection for remote manual control. Eggplantium makes it easy for anyone writing Selenium WebDriver scripts to run them against mobile devices in a reliable way and access the richer functionality of the device.

Eggplant is a long time contributor to the GNUStep project and this initiative expands its commitment to support the open source communities. Both free products are available for download at eggplant.io.
