6.2. Custom components - Plugins

PerfCake has the ability to extend its functionality by adding plugins - new custom components such as senders, generators, reporters, destinations or validators. [19]

To add a new component to PerfCake, all you need to do is to take the jar file with the packaged component (along with all its dependencies) and place them in the $PERFCAKE_HOME/lib/plugins directory.

[19] To get the details about creating custom components (plugins), see the PerfCake Developers' Guide.
