TestNG method that is annotated with @BeforeClass annotation will be run before the first test method in the current class is invoked.

Here is a quick example

Code

package com.skilledmonster.example;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;
/**
* Example to demonstrate use of @BeforeClass annotation of TestNG framework
*
* @author Jagadeesh Motamarri
* @version 1.0
*/
public class TestNGAnnotationBeforeClassExample {
@BeforeClass
public void oneTimeSetUp() {
System.out.println("@BeforeClass: The annotated method will be run before the first test method in the current class is invoked.");
}
@Test
public void validateSum() {
System.out.println("@Test : validateSum()");
int a = 5;
int b = 10;
Assert.assertEquals(a + b, 15);
}
@Test
public void validateDifference() {
System.out.println("@Test : validateDifference()");
int a = 5;
int b = 10;
Assert.assertEquals(b - a, 5);
}
}

Output

 testng_beforeclass_annotation 

As shown in the above console output, oneTimeSetUp() method is invoked before executing validateDifference() and validateSum() methods.
