TestNG Automated Testing

See our TestNG example repository for a simple example on how to run TestNG tests on TestingBot.

TestNG is a framework similar to JUnit and NUnit, which supports some additional commands and features.
You can find more info about TestNG on the TestNG website.


To run your first test with TestNG, please follow the simple example below.


Example code

import java.net.URL;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Platform;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterClass;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class TestingBotTest {
    private WebDriver driver;

    @BeforeClass
    public void setUp() throws Exception {
        DesiredCapabilities capabillities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
        capabillities.setCapability("version", "latest");
        capabillities.setCapability("platform", Platform.WINDOWS);
        capabillities.setCapability("name", "Testing Selenium");

        driver = new RemoteWebDriver(
                new URL("https://api_key:api_secret@hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub"), capabillities);
    }

    @Test
    public void testSimple() throws Exception {
        driver.get("https://testingbot.com/");
        String searchHeader = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("H1"))
                .getText().toLowerCase();

        Assert.assertTrue(searchHeader.contains("Browser Testing"));
    }

    @AfterClass
    public void tearDown() throws Exception {
        driver.quit();
    }
}

Configuring capabilities

To run your existing tests on TestingBot, your tests will need to be configured to use the TestingBot remote machines. If the test was running on your local machine or network, you can simply change your existing test like this:


Before:
FirefoxDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

After:
WebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver(
  new URL("http://key:secret@hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub"),
  DesiredCapabilities.firefox()
);

Specify Browsers & Devices

To let TestingBot know on which browser/platform/device you want to run your test on, you need to specify the browsername, version, OS and other optional options in the capabilities field.



Testing Internal Websites

We've built TestingBot Tunnel, to provide you with a secure way to run tests against your staged/internal webapps.
Please see our TestingBot Tunnel documentation for more information about this easy to use tunneling solution.


The example below shows how to easily run a TestNG test with our Tunnel:


1. Download our tunnel and start the tunnel:

java -jar testingbot-tunnel.jar key secret

2. Adjust your test: instead of pointing to 'hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub' like the example above - change it to point to your tunnel's IP address.
Assuming you run the tunnel on the same machine you run your tests, change to 'localhost:4445/wd/hub'. localhost is the machine running the tunnel, 4445 is the default port of the tunnel.


This way your test will go securely through the tunnel to TestingBot and back:


import java.net.URL;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Platform;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterClass;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class TestingBotTest {
    private WebDriver driver;

    @BeforeClass
    public void setUp() throws Exception {
        DesiredCapabilities capabillities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
        capabillities.setCapability("version", "latest");
        capabillities.setCapability("platform", Platform.WINDOWS);
        capabillities.setCapability("name", "Testing Selenium");

        driver = new RemoteWebDriver(
                new URL("http://api_key:api_secret@localhost:4445/wd/hub"),capabillities);
    }

    @Test
    public void testSimple() throws Exception {
        driver.get("https://testingbot.com/");
        String searchHeader = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("H1"))
                .getText().toLowerCase();

        Assert.assertTrue(searchHeader.contains("Browser Testing"));
    }

    @AfterClass
    public void tearDown() throws Exception {
        driver.getSessionId()
        driver.quit();
    }
}

Run tests in Parallel

Parallel Testing means running the same test, or multiple tests, simultaneously. This greatly reduces your total testing time.

You can run the same tests on all different browser configurations or run different tests all on the same browser configuration.
TestingBot has a large grid of machines and browsers, which means you can use our service to do efficient parallel testing. It is one of the key features we provide to greatly cut down on your total testing time.


To run a test on different browsers at the same time, you will need to create a testng.xml file and create a testcase that uses parameters (org.testng.annotations.Parameters). Please see the example below:


package tb;

import org.testng.annotations.Test;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterClass;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;
import org.testng.Assert;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.URL;

import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType;
import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.Augmenter;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;

public class TestCase {

  private WebDriver driver;


  @BeforeClass
  @org.testng.annotations.Parameters(value={"browser","version","platform"})
  public void setUp(String browser, String version, String platform) throws Exception {
    DesiredCapabilities capability = new DesiredCapabilities();
    capability.setCapability("platform", platform);
    capability.setCapability("browserName", browser);
    capability.setCapability("version", version);
    driver = new RemoteWebDriver(
      new URL("api_key:api_secret@hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub"),
      capability);
  }

  @Test
  public void testSimple() throws Exception {
    driver.get("http://www.google.com");
    System.out.println("Page title is: " + driver.getTitle());
    Assert.assertEquals("Google", driver.getTitle());
    WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.name("q"));
    element.sendKeys("TestingBot");
    element.submit();
    driver = new Augmenter().augment(driver);
    File srcFile = ((TakesScreenshot) driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
    try {
      FileUtils.copyFile(srcFile, new File("Screenshot.png"));
    } catch (IOException e) {
      e.printStackTrace();
    }
  }

  @AfterClass
  public void tearDown() throws Exception {
    driver.quit();
  }
}

Now you need to create a testng.xml file which will provide the test cases with parameters (browser combinations):


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE suite SYSTEM "http://testng.org/testng-1.0.dtd">
<suite thread-count="3" name="Suite" parallel="tests">
  <test name="FirstTest">
  <parameter name="browser" value="firefox"/>
  <parameter name="version" value="latest"/>
  <parameter name="platform" value="MAC"/>
    <classes>
      <class name="tb.TestCase"/>
    </classes>
  </test> <!-- Test -->
  <test name="SecondTest">
  <parameter name="browser" value="chrome"/>
  <parameter name="version" value="latest"/>
  <parameter name="platform" value="WINDOWS"/>
    <classes>
      <class name="tb.TestCase"/>
    </classes>
  </test> <!-- Test -->
  <test name="ThirdTest">
  <parameter name="browser" value="safari"/>
  <parameter name="version" value="latest"/>
  <parameter name="platform" value="MAC"/>
    <classes>
      <class name="tb.TestCase"/>
    </classes>
  </test> <!-- Test -->
</suite> <!-- Suite -->

Queuing

Every plan we provide comes with a limit of parallel tests.
If you exceed the number of parallel tests assigned to your account, TestingBot will queue the additional tests (for up to 6 minutes) and run the tests as soon as slots become available.

Mark tests as passed/failed

To see if a test passed or not in our member area, or to send additional meta-data to TestingBot, you need to use our API.

TestingBot has a Java client for using the TestingBot API.

Once included with your tests, you can send back test status and other meta-data to TestingBot:


import com.testingbot.testingbotrest.TestingbotREST;

@After
public void tearDown() throws Exception {
  TestingbotREST r = new TestingbotREST("key", "secret");
  Map<String, String> data = new HashMap<String, String>();
  data.put("success", "1");
  data.put("name", "My Test");
  r.updateTest(driver.getSessionId(), data);
  driver.quit();
}
