For a while I have been saying to everyone I know that Crystal Reports is more efficient at processing reports than Web Intelligence but I have never had any concrete proof. So I decided to set myself a small project that compares Web Intelligence document to the same report created in Crystal Reports. And the result of that project is Boest – a Java application that can be used for stress testing an SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise installation.
I’ve decided to make this application open source so that others can either just it to test their own systems or even contribute to extending it further to provide more functionality. This application can be downloaded from SourceForge.net.
