ActiveMQ 5.5.0 performance test plugin

It not very simple to apply the perf test instructions given at I encountered many problems, and here is a way to make it run.

Required: Maven 2, SVN client like tortoise SVN


1. Checkout the source code for Active MQ 5.5.0 from SVN to directory AMQ

2. Checkout perf test code from SVN to directory AMQPerf

3. cd AMQ/activemq-tooling/maven-activemq-perf-plugin and edit pom.xml. Remove line <scope>test</scope> from org.slf4j dependency.

4. cd AMQPerf and edit pom.xml. Change <version> in <parent> to 5.5.0

5. cd AMQ/activemq-tooling and run “mvn clean install”

6. cd AMQPerf and run “mvn clean install”

7. Run Commands as provided in from the AMQPerf directory in separate command prompts/Consoles, that is-

Console1> mvn activemq-perf:consumer
Console2> mvn activemq-perf:producer

This works for me perfectly.
