sbt-testng-interface - Testing via TestNG in sbt

Build Status

This is an implementation of the sbt test interface for testing with TestNG.

If you're developing in Scala, you can use Specs2 and be happy. However, if you're sentenced to Java, TestNG is a very good alternative to JUnit.

Usage

Thanks to @asflierl, there is now a convenience sbt plugin which greatly simplifies configuring the testng test interface.

Version 3.1.1 works with sbt 0.13.5 or higher.

Add the following to your project's plugins.sbt file:

addSbtPlugin("de.johoop" % "sbt-testng-plugin" % "3.1.1")

Add the following to your project's build.sbt file:

enablePlugins(TestNGPlugin)

You can configure TestNG via the settings keys below.

When done, run your tests in sbt as usual via sbt test.

Settings

testNGVersion

  • Description: Version of TestNG to use for the tests.
  • Accepts: String
  • Default: "6.11"

testNGOutputDirectory

  • Description: Where TestNG stores its test result files.
  • Accepts: String
  • Default: "target/testng"

testNGParameters

  • Description: Additional TestNG parameters.
  • Accepts: Seq[String]
  • Default: Seq()

testNGSuites

  • Description: TestNG test suite file paths (yaml or xml).
  • Accepts: Seq[String]
  • Default: Seq("src/test/resources/testng.yaml")

Note

TestNG uses its own test runner wich works in a very different way compared to the one from sbt. This means that the interface implementation is kind of a hack.

This also means that executing single tests via**sbt test-only** won't work. Please use the options of TestNG instead.
