JMeter supports JMS test plans almost out of the box. Only a simple operation is needed before using the dedicated samplers.
Move the downloaded JAR to the
JMETER_HOME/lib folder, for this is the right place for “utility jars”, according to the doc.
If JMeter is already started, you have to restart it before going on.
Now, you can follow the official tutorial without getting errors such as:
Response message: javax.naming.NamingException: javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Cannot instantiate class: org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory [Root exception is java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory]
