Atlassian Blogs: Automated performance testing using JMeter and Maven
"When I think of Agile, I tend to think of the awesomeness it can bring me as a performance engineer. I see short cycles where the code is usually always stable and features are delivered incrementally. I get to watch the performance of the system evolve over time.
