Hello everyone,

On behalf of the TestNG Dev team, I wish all TestNG users a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

We are pleased to announce the availability of TestNG 7.5 (org.testng:testng:7.5)

TestNG 7.5 is now available in Maven Central.

Contributors who helped make TestNG become better in this release:

  • ZhangJian He
  • Roman Morskyi
  • Dzmitry Sankouski
  • cdalexndr
  • Nan Liang
  • Elis Edlund
  • dianny
  • Stuart Marks 
  • Ian Springer
  • Pavel Sakharchuk
  • baflQA
  • Vitalii Diravka
  • Marcono1234
  • Anindya Roy

Special thanks go to

  • Julien Herr for helping out with all the code reviews
  • Vladimir Sitnikov for helping with refactoring the codebase into multiple modules and also streamlining a lot of areas around the TestNG gradle build files and of course,
  • to all the other contributors who made this release possible.

In this release, we spent a lot of time squashing a lot of bugs (Please see below for a full list of issues that were fixed)

Note:

TestNG 7.5 would be the last of the TestNG releases that would run on JDK8. The next TestNG release would have a minimum JDK dependency of JDK11

Complete list of bugs that were fixed are as below:

  • GITHUB-2701: Bump gradle version to 7.3.3 to support java17 build

  • GITHUB-2563: Skip test if its data provider provides no data
  • GITHUB-2535: TestResult.getEndMillis() returns 0 for skipped configuration - after upgrading testng to 7.0 +

What version of surefire plugin are you working with ? Can you upgrade to the latest surefire plugin and see if that helps?

This is because surefire plugin is attempting to use a method in TestNG that was deprecated and removed later. 

Thanks & Regards

I am running 2.22.2 but I have also tested 3.0.0-M5. What version of surefire is known to work?

I don’t remember exactly. I do vaguely remember that there was an incompatibility between sure fire plugin and TestNG around this method. 

Can you create a sample project that can be used to reproduce the problem ? 

Thanks & Regards

the problem isn't related to the test itself (the test is never run), it's a runtime issue. To reproduce this I simply run any test in parallel. 

<property>
    <name>parallel</name>
    <value>classes</value>
</property>

Without a sample project which shows what your dependencies are and the plugins that you use and their versions, I personally dont think I can be much of a help. 

So let me step aside and let someone else chime in.

This is a problem with surefire plugin, but I am not sure if the fix for this has been released (the latest released version of surefire plugin doesn’t have the fix)

 

For more details, you can take a look at this Stackoverflow post: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/68143219/maven-surefire-failsafe-testng-7-4-0-parallel-error-void-org-testng-xml-xmlsuit

 

PS: The github link you shared is not accessible to me.

So since 7.4, parallelism in testNG has a dependency on unreleased software? Good to know!

Thanks again Krishnan,
Dennis

Dennis,

No I wouldn't say so.

Rephrasing it, I would say that the Surefire plugin needs to upgrade itself to be able to be compatible with the latest released version of TestNG.

You can still control parallelism by creating a suite xml file wherein you mention the parallelism strategy and surefire plugin can be fed with the suite file path and it would work. The issue is strictly related to when you try to control parallelism via surefire exposed properties (which eventually get propagated to TestNG)

Thanks & Regards
Krishnan Mahadevan

Wonderful news!


Seems to have some conflict when a listener thows a SkipException, and skips due to config issues. Will need to analyze this more.

Hi everyone. I have an issue.
I'm using Maven+TestNg+Selenide. And now, when I'm updated from 7.4.0 to 7.5 I cannot use @Listeners({SoftAsserts.class}) to turn on soft asserts for class. 
My test is always green even if I broke them down on purpose.

@Listeners({SoftAsserts.class - this is class integrated into com.codeborne.selenide.testng; })
public class BannersCreate extends BannersAbstractTest {
}

Please, help me!)

There's not much information to figure out what is going on.

Can you please do the following?

1. Upgrade to TestNG 7.6.0 and retry your scenario (You will need JDK11)
2. If the problem persists, please create a sample project that can be used to recreate the problem (Please don't share the entire project that you are working with since its not going to be possible to delve into its specifics to find out what is going wrong and at the same time, please help keep the sample project's dependencies to the bare minimum i.e., just testng and print statements to reproduce the problem)

Thanks & Regards
Krishnan Mahadevan
