Usually slow responding web applications, webservices and non functional performance issues are the nightmare of every solution architect and implementation team. Not for WebSlug's developpers, whose sole purpose was to develop a tool to slow down responses of your application servers.
Sometimes while executing functional testing of applications consuming external network based webservices, you might want to test scenarios where the consumed service responds slowly. Doing so would allow testers to verify correct functionality of error handling code that has been implemented to handle situations where dependant services respond slowly.
To better target the use cases to be tested, it might be desirable to slow down some specific requests only, based on occurrence of specific strings in the request's payload (body).
That's were WebSlug comes to your assistance. It allows you to:
Tomcat 7 (... might work on other versions at well) on JRE 7+
WebSlug is currently delivered as a jar file that you can download here.

Adapt the following elements to suit your requirements:
You can use the filter for free, no fee applies.
If using for evaluation purposes in a commercial environment you're only allowed to evaluate for a week. Please note that the evaluation period will immediately end if you start using the tool for actual testing.
If WebSlug is used in a commercial environment (... as you'd expect, as I can't see much use or fun from using it for "personal" purposes...), a licensing fee applies. We'll offer an option to purchase a license online in the near future, please contact us for pricing information.
As a guideline, licensing starts at 20 AUD/week for each application server the filter is deployed on. We'll offer discounts for long term usage or if deploying on a large number of servers. If you need a license please contact us via the "Contact Us" tab.
