Setup TestNG in eclipse for automating test using Selenium Webdriver and Java

TestNG is a testing framework developed in the lines of JUnit and NUnit, however it introduces some new functionalities that make it more powerful and easier to use.
TestNG is designed to cover all categories of tests − unit, functional, end-to-end, integration, etc., and it requires JDK 5 or higher. Some of its features are listed down:
  • Annotations.
  • Flexible test configuration.
  • Support for data-driven testing (with @DataProvider).
  • Support for parameters.
  • Supported by a variety of tools and plug-ins (Eclipse, IDEA, Maven, etc...).
  • Default JDK functions for runtime and logging (no dependencies).
  • Dependent methods for application server testing.
Annotation in TestNG actually is code snippet which lies just ahead of the method declaration and controls the execution of the method. Annotation starts with @ sign. Below is the example of it:
