Trade3 is the third generation of the WebSphere end-to-end benchmark and performance sample application. The new Trade3 benchmark models an online stock brokerage application and has been re-designed and developed to cover WebSphere's significantly expanding programming model. This provides a real world workload driving WebSphere's implementation of J2EE 1.3 and Web Services including key WebSphere performance components and features.
Trade3's new design spans J2EE 1.3 including the new EJB 2.0 component architecture, Message Driven beans, transactions (1-phase, 2-phase commit) and Web Services (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI). Trade3 also highlights key WebSphere performance components such as DynaCache, WebSphere Edge Server and Web Services.
