Gatling Fundamentals for Stress Testing APIs – Java – 2022

Gatling Fundamentals for Stress Testing APIs - Java - 2022


Gatling has been around since 2012, and has since grown into a hugely popular open-source tool for stress testing any web application or API. Until recently, Gatling had only been available in Scala, which has hindered many users in adopting the tool.

In 2022, Gatling finally released a Java version of the tool, eliminating the need to use Scala and opening the doors for wide spread adoption.

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of using the Java version of the Gatling stress testing tool. We will write many Gatling scripts from scratch against a target application created specifically for this course.

Why Gatling?:

  • Extremely powerful and flexible performance and stress testing solution
  • An open-source tool, so no cost to use it
  • Performance testers with Gatling experience are in high demand – yet few Engineers know how to use this tool

Why this course?:

  • Learn all aspects of the Java version of Gatling including:
    • Installation & Configuration, both standalone and in an IDE using the Maven build tool
    • Using the Recorder to record your user journey, both with Swagger and Postman
    • Writing many Gatling load test scripts from scratch, learning all fundamental concepts
    • Analysing test results reports
  • See how to write many scripts from scratch to become familiar with the process, each script teaches a new concept
  • Run tests from the command line, including by using the Maven build tool.
  • Although Gatling scripts are pure Java code, you will see why the excellent Gatling DSL means no real knowledge of Java  is required to succeed with Gatling
  • Resources for learning Gatling are scarce. It can be overwhelming and intimidating trying to learn this tool on your own from scratch. This course is designed to address that

What are the benefits of taking this course?:

  • Have fun whilst learning a valuable skill & tool
  • Command a higher salary
  • Improve your skills and offering as a developer and tester

This course is for any Developer or Quality Engineer that wants to learn how to use the Java version of Gatling for adding performance and stress tests to their test suite.

No prior knowledge of performance testing or software development is required, as I will be walking you through the entire process. However, any prior knowledge or experience that you do have in these domains  will be of benefit and will naturally aid learning.

If you want to add an awesome, fully open source performance testing tool that is in high demand across a wide range of software development roles to your skillset, this is the course for you.

Who this course is for:

  • QA Engineers and Programmers with little or no experience with Gatling
  • Anyone using an alternative load testing tool like JMeter, LoadRunner or NeoLoad that wants to learn a new tool
  • Developers looking to add a powerful, fun and intuitive new tool to their knowledge-base


  • Some basic experience in any computer programming language will be helpful, but not required
  • Experience of using Java is a plus, although again not required to follow along with the course
  • Previous experience of any performance testing tool will be a small help, but again not in any way required
