A test suite is a collection of test cases that are intended to test a behaviour or set of behaviours of software program.
In TestNG, we cannot define a suite in testing source code, for better, it is represented by one XML file, because suite is the feature of execution, this also allows flexible configuration of the tests to be run and keep no change to code base once suite is changed. A suite can contain one or more tests and is defined by the <suite> tag.
We created the following example suite
Suite1 which includes SimpleTest1 and SimpleTest2, the several test cases are bundled so will be executed together.
<!DOCTYPE suite SYSTEM "http://testng.org/testng-1.0.dtd" > <suite name="Suite1" verbose="1" > <test name="SimpleTest1" > <classes> <class name="tutorialSimpleTest1" /> </classes> </test> <test name="SimpleTest2"> <classes> <class name="ParameterSample"/> <class name="ParameterTest"/> </classes> </test> </suite>
In TestNG runing command line, we can specific a suite name to be ran by using option -suitename.
Note if you annotated methods with
@BeforeSuite or @AfterSuite in this test suite, the methods will be run before or after all tests in this suite.
I am using testNg . And i have created a testng.xml file which is working fine from eclipse. please guide me how to run it from command prompt.
I dont know from which folder we need to run the command .
java org.testng.TestNG testng.xml -suitename Suite1
You need to set classpath both for testng.jar and your code jar.
then cd /location to your suite xml file: java org.testng.TestNG testng.xml -suitename Suite1
Hi can you please make a complete example on how using XML file with TestNG in details accompanied with images?
For Example you created a project in eclipse Say “Test1″, and created a java class say NewTest.java in a package “com”. It will be like
The location of NewTest.java is “D:\WorkSpace\Test1\src\com\NewTest.java” in its local system (Lets assume)
In order to execute it through command prompt
STEP1:- Go To D:\WorkSpace\Test1\src>
execute the following command to compile the java class
Before going to step2, you need to download the jars
and save it in your local system. In my system I saved at location
Note:- We will be using above location for Step2.
STEP2:- Go to D:\WorkSpace\Test1\src>
execute the following command
java -cp “.;D:\TESTNG_Sample_Executable\TESTNG\lib\testng-6.8.jar;D:\TESTNG_Sample_Executable\TESTNG\lib\reportng-1.1.4.jar;D:\TESTNG_Sample_Executable\TESTNG\lib\velocity-dep-1.4.jar;D:\TESTNG_Sample_Executable\TESTNG\lib\guice-3.0.jar” org.testng.TestNG testng.xml
This will show you the status of your test cases.
Please let me know if you still faces any problem
