<title>Nightly builds for developers</title>
<section name="Nightly builds for developers">
<h2>What are the nightly builds?</h2>
The nightly builds are interim builds that are <b>untested and unsupported</b>.
<i>Use at your own risk!</i>
These unreleased builds may not even load, may have undocumented features,
known defects, and any number of other issues.
They are intended for use by developers and others wishing to help with resolving JMeter bugs.
<span style="font-size : x-large"><b>These builds should not be used in production.</b></span>
<h2>Where are the nightly builds?</h2>
<p>JMeter CI builds are currently run by Jenkins and Buildbot</p>
<p>These are located at:
<li><a href="">Last Successful Jenkins build for JMeter-trunk</a></li>
<li><a href="">Buildbot nightly builds for JMeter-trunk</a></li>
<li><a href="">Maven Snapshots (Buildbot nightly builds)</a></li>
<h2>What do they consist of?</h2>
JMeter is distributed as a set of zip (or tar-gz) archive files.
The files are called:
<li>apache-jmeter-{version} - JMeter binaries</li>
<li>apache-jmeter-{version} - 3rd party jar files (rarely changes)</li>
<li>apache-jmeter-{version} - JMeter source</li>
<li>apache-jmeter-{version} - JMeter Javadoc (if available)</li>
<h2>Installing JMeter runtime</h2>
Download the _bin and _lib files
Unpack the archives into the same directory structure
The other archives are not needed to run JMeter.
<h2>Building JMeter</h2>
Download the _src, _bin and _lib files
Unpack all the archives into the <b>same directory structure</b>.
<h2>Warning - please note!</h2>
<span style="font-size : large">
<b>The nightly builds may or may not work properly - or at all.</b>
If there is a problem with a particular version,
it may be worth reporting this on the JMeter-dev mailing list and/or trying again in a day or two.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
