Having an efficient web application is a challenge that we need to achieve when architecting web applications in the development process. This research follows a performance modeling approach that aims to utilize load testing tools to give ideas about performance issues early in the development life cycle for applications implemented using Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) or .NET platform. Thus, it helps system architects to choose between competitive frameworks. To achieve this, the applications are subjected to artificial workload. Direct measurements are obtained on the specified application scenarios using different tools. Parasoft WebKing and Hewlett-Packard LoadRunner were used for this purpose. Later on, the obtained results indicate that, Java EE performs better than .NET. by means of response time and memory utilization.
