You often get one chance to win adoption of JMeter or other client software among busy finicky developers. Giving developers a long list of manual instructions is a recipe for shelfware. So what do we do? There are dozens of apps. Create a client installation script so that every new developer has no issues starting the first day on a new Mac laptop.
