CSIRO Project Acquisition and Description

The final semester is fast approaching and with it comes the last mountain to be climbed where some will fall along the way. Like all mountains sits the test of truth at the top that will make or break some, this final test is ELEC4707 (The Engineering Project)

After speaking to Dr Shiping Chen at the CSIRO ICT division, and sending in our resumes, David Ma (SID: 200414178), Naimul Khaled (SID: 200414172) and I (SID: 200419452) acquired a project labeled "Open Source of Software Performance Testing Framework"
This team project collectively involves:
1. Building/deployment of an enterprise system capable of simulating simple transactions using a Java and/or Microsoft .Net framework.
2. Subjecting this system to testing using a given framework by the CSIRO
3. Documentation of findings and results.
4. Publication of code as open source along with documentation to allow for further improvement by the community.
