Hi ,
i have developed a database from scratch with XML. I have a windows forms app that has 2 fields and a button , and if user clicks that button an activity takes place that involves fetching data from database.
Now , i want to check how my database functions under heavy load , and for this i want to automate my windows forms app so that it runs overnight , by passing random text at predefined intervals of time to text fields and automatically clicks the button.
I came across a tool called Auto IT and am checking how it may help me.

Anybody has any other suggestions?

I would not do stress test through your user interface. Because then when you change your user interface then you'll have to change your tests as well.

Thanks Wouter for your reply.
Presently we have a plan to do stress test through the interface itself due to time constraints

Would yo ube able to get WinRunner for the testing?

Could use the Robot class in java (probably not a good idea )

We are a small team within company and we don't have access to proprietary tools . We can only work on free tools or build our own tools to test the product.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
