CannotResolveClassException: com.blazemeter.jmeter.RandomCSVDataSetConfig



I am building a maven project to execute performance testing for multiple web services, and this is following to jmeter-maven-plugin.

However I ran into an issue which is basically that maven can not find the RandomCSVDataSetConfig class. in which I included in my pom file.

Please share you insight if you have any idea why this is happening.

UPDATE:

Answer

This can be done by adding jar’s to the /lib/ext directory as the following:
