The paper provides a brief overview of the state of the art in middleware benchmarking. The overview is used to highlight some of the outstanding issues in the area, specifically the issues related to implementing, running and evaluating regression benchmarks. The issues are analysed in depth and the course of the work towards resolving them is presented. Middleware benchmarking is an integral part of the distributed computing area, where it serves to satisfy an obvious need to evaluate and compare performance of numerous implementations of communication and application middleware standards, such as CORBA [Object Management Group, 2000], RMI [Sun Microsystems, 2002a], or EJB [Sun Microsystems, 2001].
