JMeter- Installation and Pre-requisites

The easiest way to begin using JMeter is to first download the latest production release and install it. The release contains all of the files you need to build and run most types of tests, e.g. Web (HTTP/HTTPS), FTP, JDBC, LDAP, Java, JUnit and more.

Download URL: http://jmeter.apache.org/download_jmeter.cgi
To install a release build, simply unzip the zip/tar file into the directory where you want JMeter to be installed. Provided that you have a JRE/JDK correctly installed and the JAVA_HOME environment variable set.

If you want to perform JDBC testing, then you will, of course, need the appropriate JDBC driver from your vendor. JMeter does not come with any JDBC drivers.

JMeter includes the JMS API jar, but does not include a JMS client implementation. If you want to run JMS tests, you will need to download the appropriate jars from the JMS provider.

JMeter requires that your computing environment meets some minimum requirements.
JMeter requires a fully compliant JVM 6 or higher.
Because JMeter uses only standard Java APIs, please do not file bug reports if your JRE fails to run JMeter because of JRE implementation issues.
JMeter is a 100% Java application and should run correctly on any system that has a compliant Java implementation.
Operating systems tested with JMeter can be viewed on JMeterís wiki page.
Even if your OS is not listed on the wiki page, JMeter should run on it provided that the JVM is compliant.
