Docker Extensions was announced as a beta at DockerCon 2022. Docker Extensions became generally available in January 2023. Developing performance tools’ related extensions was on my to-do list for a long time. Due to my master’s degree, I couldn’t spend time learning Docker Extensions SDK. I expected someone would have created the extension by now, considering it’s almost 2024. It’s surprising to me that none has been developed as far as I know. But no more. Introducing the Apache JMeter Docker Extension. Now, you can run Apache JMeter tests in Docker Desktop without installing JMeter locally. In this blog post, we will explore how to get started with this extension and understand its functionality. We will also cover generating HTML reports and other related topics.
