Yesterday, the Rangers released a Beta release of the next version of their WCF Load Test Tool.  This tool enables you to use a trace file to generate a test that reproduces the trace.  There’s a bunch of nice new features:

  1. Support for DataSets
  2. Support for duplex contracts
  3. Can handle ASMX services, even without a WCF client, which comes from the capability to process Fiddler2 traces
  4. Automatically filters out NullMessage messages which can appear in service-side message logs
  5. Verifies that the right kind of message log has been provided
  6. Initializes out parameters in the stub methods so that generated code will always compile without modification
  7. No longer locks the assemblies after the wizard has been used
  8. Provides improved error reporting

You can download the tool off of CodePlex from here: WCF Load Test tool
