I'd like to ask some help regarding how to achieve what I described in
the subject. I try to wrap my mind around what is needed for this. So
far I struggled to wire together them, but eventually maven can kick
off a jmeter test , and jmeter can execute an external groovy
script ( I had to copy all groovy files into
src/target/jmeter/testFiles directory and align external script path
accordingly in jmx file. But, this is the point where I faced the next
error.  To my knowledge the error says that whatever I copied into
the src/target/jmeter/testFiles directory it is not managed as groovy
My idea how to solve this and I'd like to ask your review or advise.
There is a high chance I invented the hot water again... :)
There are two groovy files in my mind.
- Type A, where I describe methods, REST Api payloads, any reusable stuff
- Type B, where I call the methods in whatever order I want and these
files basically the Sampler scripts
The Type A groovy files should be in a separated maven project and
.jar packaged. Once these projects are built they have to copied into
src/target/jmeter/lib directory, so when jmeter starts it can read
The Type B groovy files should be copied into
src/target/jmeter/testFiles directory, so jmeter will find these and
execute them, not to mention that the script paths will be way
Did anyone from you achieved what I described above or similar?
Can you direct me to doc, blogs or articles which has examples how to
use external groovy scripts with jmeter in maven environment?
