Hi,
I need to do stress testing for webapplication. Which one is the best to use Apache's JMETER or Microsoft WebApplication Stress Tool?

Sudha,
They work differently - JMeter simulates a browser and Microsoft's goes against IE. One isn't inherently better than he other. I know more people using JMeter, but that's probably because it is written in Java.

Bear in mind that JMeter does not do browser testing.

I am reminded of a project some years ago which assembled a group of about 20 people to simultaneously log in and use a web application. This did test, amongst other things, that browser rendering and Javascript execution were included in the performance testing.
