Installing Apache JMeter on Windows 10
This is the documentation for Apache JMeter installation on Windows 10.
- This article was written on September 2017
- Latest version of Apache JMeter was 3.3
- Java 8 was required
- My Windows 10 did not have any Java installed
Step 1: Install Java 8
Download latest Java 8 from Oracle website. You will need to have Oracle account for downloading Java.
Run the Java installer package.
Verify installed Java version by running this command on Command Prompt.
Step 2: Download Apache JMeter
You can download the latest version of Apache JMeter from http://jmeter.apache.org/download_jmeter.cgi
Download the Binaries zip file.
Step 3: Extract Apache JMeter
Find the downloaded zip file and extract it to your desired directory.
For example, I extract the apache-jmeter-3.3.zip to C:\tole\.
This is the snapshot of the extracted directory.
Now go to /bin folder. You will find jmeter.bat.
Double click on that file. The Apache JMeter GUI will be opened. You can create a shortcut for it on your desktop too.
On the next article, I will show how to use Apache JMeter.
