How to generate tests with different names in TestNG?

I'm using TestNG to run Selenium based tests in Java. I have a bunch of repeated tests. Generally, they do all the same except of test name and one parameter.

I want to automate generation of it. I was thinking about using factory. Is there a way to generate tests with different name? What would be the best approach to this?

As for now I have something like below and I want to create 10 tests like LinkOfInterestIsActiveAfterClick

@Test(dependsOnGroups="loggedin")
public class SmokeTest extends BrowserStartingStoping{

public void LinkOfInterestIsActiveAfterClick(){
String link = "link_of_interest";
browser.click("*",link);
Assert.assertTrue(browser.isLinkActive(link));
}

}



  • My XML suite is auto-generated from Java code.

  • Test names are crucial for logging which link is active, and which one is not.


Answer

So I connected Factory with DataProvider and used attributes of contexts.

@DataProvider(name = "DP1")
public Object[][] createData() {
  Object[][] retObjArr={
  {"Link1","link_to_page"},
  {"Link2","link_to_page"},
  return retObjArr;
}

@Test (dataProvider = "DP1")
public void isActive(String name, String link){
  this.context.setAttribute("name", name);
  browser.click(link);
  Assert.assertTrue(browser.isLinkActive(link));
}

And in the Listener

public class MyListener extends TestListenerAdapter{
  @Override
  public void onTestSuccess(ITestResult tr){
    log("+",tr);
  }
  //and similar

  private void log(String string, ITestResult tr){
    List<ITestContext> k = this.getTestContexts();
    String testName = tr.getTestClass().getName();      
    for (ITestContext i: k)
    {
      if (i.getAttribute("name") != null)
        logger.info(testName+"."+i.getAttribute("name"));
    }
  }

}
