Load Testing

I accept the honor of being the first to post in a new forum.
Now for something serious. I have been extremely curious about how to load test a web-enabled application from the front-end (JSP, HTML, Servlet, or Applet) to the backend (Database of any type) along with the tier in the middle (servlet, EJB, etc).
By load testing, I mean stressing the components as an integrated whole and not individually.
My question is: are there open source tools out there that can help me accomplish that task.

Mercury Interactive makes a product called LoadRunner that does this. I am sure it is quite costly, but perhaps you can use this in a search to find some cheaper look-a-likes.

Check out loadtesting.com, they have a Java-based load testing tool.

Or you could use httpUnit to build your own small load testing tool. (httpUnit is - despite its name - essentially a tool to analyze and operate html pages)

There is also JWebUnit
I never used it.
