Setp by step guide to run Selenium Script in JMeter

Run Selenium Script using JMeter – Step by Step Guide

In continuation of JMeter tutorial, we bring one of interesting step by step guide which helps you in Selenium JMETER integration. This article help you to perform load testing with Selenium JMeter. You may put desired load on your web application and measure performance of Application.  In this tutorial, we will learn how to write selenium Junit test, create executable Jar and configure in JMeter to perform test.

Performance Testing is the one of important testing for every application which gives idea about application performance on various loads (users). This is essential especially when huge load is expected on our application due big sale or events. In performance testing, we may get one scenario where we need to perform load testing with Selenium JMeter. This may be bit tricky if you are not aware with JMeter features. But this tutorial end to end helps you in writing Selenium Test and Selenium Integration with JMeter.
