JMeter Maven Plugin

This is a Maven 3 plugin that allows you to run JMeter tests as part of the build.

Install the Plugin

This plugin is available from the maven central repository, as long as you have a working install of maven you only need to create a valid pom.xml that references this plugin.

Basic Configuration

  • Create a src/test/jmeter directory, and place your JMeter load tests there.
  • Add the plugin to your pom.xml


Executing the Plugin

  • Run "mvn clean verify" to run the tests (Best practice would be to assign the JMeter tests to a specific profile so that they only run when invoking that profile).
