This page describes how to build JMeter.

Obtaining the code

The code can either be obtained from SVN, or extracted from the release archives.

Download code from SVN

svn co target-directory

Extract code from release archives

Unpack both the binary and source archives for the same release into the same directory structure.

There should be a couple of duplicate files: LICENCE, NOTICE

Building the code using Ant

Change to the top-level JMeter directory - the one containing and build.xml

Run the following command:

ant package

This will compile all the classes and create all the jars.

Building the code using Eclipse

See eclipse.readme in the distribution
