Assessing the likely run-time performance of applications using thin-client architectures during their design is very difficult. We describe SoftArch/Thin, a thin-client test-bed generator that synthesises performance test-bed thin-client and server code from high-level software architecture models. This generated code is performance tested using a third-party tool and the results summarised. Architecture models can be evolved and tests repeated during application development to inform software engineers of realistic performance characteristics of their designs. Our environment currently supports J2EE and ASP.NET-based thin-client code generation and performance testing.
