TestNG Depedency Test – Multiple Test Method Dependency

· Java Zone

Discover how AppDynamics steps in to upgrade your performance game and prevent your enterprise from these top 10 Java performance problems, brought to you in partnership with AppDynamics.

Dependency is a feature in TestNG that allows a test method to depend on a single or a group of test methods. This will help in executing a set of tests to be executed before a test method.

The dependency on multiple test methods is configured for a test by providing comma separated dependent test method names to the attribute dependsOnMethods while using the Test annotation.

The following example shows a test class where process() test method depends on multiple test methods start() and initi() of the same class.

Code

package com.skilledmonster.example;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;
/**
* Example to demonstrate TestNG multiple dependency method execution
*
* @author Jagadeesh Motamarri
* @version 1.0
*/
public class MultipleDependencyTest {
@Test
public void start() {
System.out.println("Starting the server");
}
@Test(dependsOnMethods = { "start" })
public void init() {
System.out.println("Initializing the data for processing!");
}
@Test(dependsOnMethods = { "start", "init" })
public void process() {
System.out.println("Processing the data!");
}
@Test(dependsOnMethods = { "process" })
public void stop() {
System.out.println("Stopping the server");
}
}

Output


TestNG Depedency Test - Multiple Test Method Dependency - Output

As seen in the above console output, process() method executed after start() and init() methods are executed and like wise stop() method is executed after process()  method is executed.
