Stress Testing Applications


I am thinking of recommending that we perform stress testing of one of our Java applications. None of us have prior experience on stress testing  - i.e. for memory leaks etc.

Is there a tool that users are familiar with that does not require too steep of a learning curve?

Try "java profiler" or "java stress test", JMeter can make web hits, but you'll have to ensure it can test individual functions or classes as well.

My mood ring is low tech, but does a pretty good job of this.
