Sorry if this is not the correct forum - please direct me to the correct forum, if that is the case.

Our application is a POS application that runs JNLP started remote clients using EJB 2.1.    A potential customer wants us to run some volume tests that simulate approximately 50 cash registers attached to our store server and actively ringing transactions.   I believe the tools our performance engineering team is planning on using is one of the Mercury (now HP) tools, using the RMI protocol feature.

My question is,  if the test is driven from one box, does remoting see that as one client or 50 clients, if the ip address on the other end of the request is always the same?

I have never worked with any of these tools, but I would hope they can 'simulate' the client requests such that the application believes 50 clients are attached vs just 1 client and all traffic going across one set of sockets?   Hope this makes sense.
