A prototype research web application based on Visual Studio platform is developed with .NET as framework, Internet Information Server (IIS) (Version: 5.1) as web server and Microsoft Standard Query Language (SQL) Server (Version: 2005) as database server to study the performance and evaluation of the .NET technique used for developing the web application. The authors call it the PReWebD. As the performance is one of the most important features of a web application, to evaluate the performance, testing of PReWebD has been carried out using Mercury LoadRunner (Version 8.0) for validation and to study some other attributes like scalability, reliability etc. The performance depends on parameters such as hits/s, response time, throughput, errors/s etc. These parameters for PReWebD are tested with different stress levels. The statistical testing and analysis is done to assure the stability, reliability and quality of the application. Here the authors report in details the architecture, testing procedure, result of performance testing as well as the results of statistical analysis on recorded data of PReWebD.
