ide integration - developing and running simulations


i’m new to gatling, i’m not a scala dev. i want to write and test my simulations in my IDE and not copy paste to user-files/simulations and run on each change. i created a gradle project, imported scala-library:2.10.6 and io.gatling.highcharts:gatling-charts-highcharts:2.2.2, from manual i copied BasicSimulation.scala and placed it in /src/main/scala. everything compiles but i don’t know how to run it.

doc mentions Engine.scala but there is no such class. The class that looks like an entrypoint is i tried passing the classname hoping it will be loaded from the classpath but no success. how can i run it from IDE?

Hello Piotr,
Check out this link
If you are not particular about Eclipse as the IDE, try Intellij, comes out of the box with scala stuff.


Hi Piotr, see this answer, worked for me:

Hi Piotr,

I had the same problem and I’m 50% finished with my take on the problem - see

  • Out-of-the-box IntelliJ integration for my co-developer using Maven

  • Within IntelliJ you can edit & run tests assuming that you have Scala plugin enabled (as HP calculator user and former Forth programmer I’m unable to count parenthesis)

  • Run the same tests with Maven from the command line

  • Please note that it contains some opinionated code :slight_smile:
