Maven JMeter Plugin

The Maven JMeter Plugin allows you to automate JMeter tests in Maven.

PLEASE NOTE: The Group ID and Artifact ID have changed since version 1.4!

This is to bring the project in line with maven naming practice for non-maven plugins and to enable us to upload to the Sonatype OSS repository. This project is now in the maven central repository.
