Test Java class with JMeter

It is quite easy to test API or Website using JMeter 

but you may come across situation when you have to load test java class directly. 

This post described how a java class can be load tested. 

We will write a java program and use JMeter Java Sampler to load test it -

  • Set up a maven selenium project. If you are new to java and maven then you may like to check my java tutorials

  • Add following dependencies to your maven project (find out latest versions by searching - 












  • Let's write a java program to add numbers - 

public class AddNumbers {

   public int addTwoNumbers(int a,int b) {

       return a+b;



  • And a test program which we would use in JMeter later on.

  • Implement interface JavaSamplerClient or extend AbstractSamplerClient.

  • You can leave other methods empty and would have to implement runTest and getDefaultParameters. The test class would look as -

public class AddNumberTest implements JavaSamplerClient {

   @Override public void setupTest(JavaSamplerContext javaSamplerContext) {



   public SampleResult runTest(JavaSamplerContext javaSamplerContext) {

       String var1 = javaSamplerContext.getParameter("var1");

       String var2 = javaSamplerContext.getParameter("var2");

       SampleResult result = new SampleResult();


       result.setSampleLabel("Test Sample");

       // Test Code

       AddNumbers addNumbers = new AddNumbers();

       if(addNumbers.addTwoNumbers(Integer.valueOf(var1), Integer.valueOf(var2))==2) {





       } else {






       return result;


   @Override public void teardownTest(JavaSamplerContext javaSamplerContext) {


   @Override public Arguments getDefaultParameters() {

       Arguments defaultParameters = new Arguments();



       return defaultParameters;


  • getDefaultParameters has the parameters with default values. This values would appear on Java Sampler which we

  • would see later on. runTest method uses the parameters supplied from getDefaultParameters. runTest is quiet simple, it adds given numbers, if sum is equal to 2 then it is a success else failures.

  • Now package your project using mvn package and place the generated jar file in JMeter's following directory -

  • ~/apache-jmeter-3.0/lib/ext/

  • Now open JMeter and add Java sampler and select classname as AddNumberTest -

If you are new to JMeter then you can follow my JMeter training videos

 Lets run the test with default variables and you will see it fails since 1+2 is not equal to 2


Let's change default values to 1

Let's run test again and it is green now -


Now you can set up your test with required thread, duration and other parameters :)

** When you create new jar then you should restart JMeter. I did not see JMeter picking changes after placing new jar in /lib/ext/ directory and not restarting the JMeter

Distributed Load Testing with JMeter

Distributed Testing with JMeter When one JMeter client is not able to offer amount of threads required for load testing then distributed testing is used. In distributed testing - One instance of JMeter client can control number of JMeter instances and collect data from them Test plan does not need to be copied to each server, the client sends it to all servers note - JMeter will run all the threads on all the servers, hence 100 threads on 5 JMeter server would pump 500 threads in total. If many server instances are used, the client JMeter can become overloaded and so the client network connection. This has been improved in latest versions of JMeter by switching to Stripped modes, but you should always check that your client is not overloaded When Client (master) and Server (slave) nodes are on same network (no SSH required) Configure Client Node Herein client is referred as the machine controlling test execution on other JMeter nodes. This is also referred

Verify email confirmation using Selenium

Note: If you are new to java and selenium then start with selenium java training videos .     Email confirmation seems to be integral part of any registration process. I came across an application which lets you provide your email address. You can follow the sign up link in you mail and then complete the registration process. Lets consider we provide GMail address for it. Now if were to use only Selenium then we would have to follow following steps - Launch GMail using Selenium; Some how search for new mail in the list of available mails; Some how click on it; Parse the mail message; Get the registration link; Follow up with registration process What do you think of an approach in which you can
