Introduction to Junit in Selenium

2It is a java unit testing framework

2The purpose of J unit is to write the test scripts in java programming language and scripts can be executed by default

** write a program to register and login into by using j unit ?

2Right click on the project àclick on new àselect J unit test cases

2Give the package name as “ j unit “ & class name as “mail tag,x-right”

2check the check boxes setup() & teardown()à click on finish

2Any import statements are activations

J-Unit life cycle [execution flow]:-

2it contains the anirations like @before,@after,@test etc.

  • Before:-

It contains a setup method which acts like a precondition

  • @after:-

2It contains teardown (or)shut down method which acts as a post condition.

  • @test:-

2It is responsible to develop the test scenario where it acts like a main method

2For each and every scenario we need to develop with test animation.

2when we run the script initially it invokes @before, @after, @test methods .

  • The same process will be continued for all the @ test methods.
  • once the execution is done it provides the results under the J-unit section.

Batch execution/suite execution:

2combination of multiple test cases [scenarios]is known as a batch or test suite

  • Take how classes and execute both the classes methods in a sequential order.
  • Right click on project àclick Newà select J unit test caseà implement the class
  • Take one more class and follow above steps
  • To run all the classes right click à click on run as à select run configuration
  • Select the radio button “run all test in the…” à click on apply à click on run

Limitations of J-unit:-

2It is having very limited annotations like @before class, @before, @test, @after ,after class

  • Each and every test @before will be applicable
  • It is having option to run either a single test or all classes
  • Not having option to run the specific classes
  • Once the execution is completed it is providing the result in j-unit section of explain but not in any external field execute for the reporting.
  • All the above limitation can be overcome by using test NG.

Test NG:-

  • It is testing framework inspired and advance version of J-unit.
  • The limitation which are in J-unit are overcome and added new features that mode test NG more power here and easier to use.
  • Test NG is an add-on for eclipse.

Steps to install testing in Eclipse:

2 Go to eclipse à click on help 2 select install new software2 click on add2 give name on ”Test NG” à provide URL as  -- >click ok à check the check box “Test NG”2 click on next2 again next2 click on radio button “I accept the license”2 click on finish 2 click ok on security warning manage 2 click yes in restart message

* Write a program to handle the pop –up in spice by using web driver with testing *

2 Take a Test NG class by right click on he project à click on test NG 2 select create Test NG class

Click on browse folder on source folder expand the project and select “SRC” then click on ok

Give the package name on “spice jet _ Test NG”

Give the class name on “spice jet _ popup”

Check the check boxes @ before test and @ After test

Click on finish

Test NG life cycle[execution flow] :-

2It contains multiple anitations like @before test, @after test, @test e.t.c

2when we run the scripts initially it invokes @before test method then executes an the @test methods in a alphabetical order finally it executes @after test method.

2once the execution is done it provides the results in two formats .

  • In console

E:\  work space loan\ selenium \ test. output \ default suite\ default test. Home

Result o/p file [external file]


2To perform the test scripts execution we are planning to use xml files.


2we can run the test methods in user defined order [we can avoid alphabetical order issue]

2we can perform batch execution

2we can provide user defined names to default suite folder and default test html file.

How to create on XML file:

Go to file 2 click on new 2 select other à expand XML folder 2 select XML file 2 click on next 2  select the project

 Xml file Format:-

<suite name =”spicejet suite” >

<test name=”spicejet test results” >


<class name=”spicejet-testing.spicejet-popup”>


<include name=”verifyone way search”> </include>

<include name=”verify javascripttest”></include>
