I am happy to announce the availability of
TestNG 2.1. Some of the new features include:
- invocationCount and successPercentage, which I
described in a
previous entry, and which allow you to invoke a test method a certain
number of times while allowing some of these invocations to fail. If
the number of failures is under a certain threshold, the test is still
considered a success.
- timeOut is now applicable to all test methods.
Whether you are running your tests in parallel or not, you can specify a
time-out for your test method and if it fails to complete within the given
amount of time, TestNG will mark it as a failure.
- dependsOnMethods was the most requested feature.
You can now specify dependencies on a method-based basis (no need to specify
a group if your dependency graph is simple). You can even mix
dependsOnMethods and dependsOnGroups.
- … and of course, numerous bug fixes and other additions.
A special thanks to Alexandru Popescu who has pulled all-nighters to make
this release happen!
We have an exciting list of new features lined up for our next version, among
which a plug-in API, but in the meantime, enjoy TestNG 2.1,
