    Generate ReportNG reports in Selenium WebDriver

    Updated 4 June 2016

    The reports generated by TestNG (default reports) are not much more readable and Interactive, and can’t be shown to the managers. ReportNG is a good add-on to generate Interactive and readable reports for selenium web-driver tests.

    ReportNG is a simple HTML reporting plug-in for the TestNG unit-testing framework. It is intended as a replacement for the default TestNG HTML report. It provides a simple, color-coded view of the test results. Setting up ReportNG is very easy. On top of it, the documentation generated is clear and easy to understand!

    Follow bellow given steps to generate ReportNG HTML report.

    STEP 1: Download and Add required Jar Files In Project’s Build path

    You need to download the bellow given jar files.

    STEP 2: Disable the default listeners of TestNG

    ReportNG uses two reporters pluggable into TestNG. JUnitXMLReporter generates XML summary of running tests. HTMLReporter creates human readable HTML report. So to run ReportNG reports the default TestNG listeners should be disabled. To disable default listeners of TestNG, follow the below steps.

    • Right click on project > Click on Properties > Click on TestNG

    • You will find an option as “Disable default listeners”, check the checbox.

    • Now Click on “OK” button.

    <listener class-name="org.uncommons.reportng.HTMLReporter" />
    <listener class-name="org.uncommons.reportng.JUnitXMLReporter" />

    STEP 4: Execute your test and look the ReportNG reports.

    Now you are done with the process of adding ReportNG to your TestNG project. To execute the report, run your project. Refresh your package explorer and under your project you will see a “test-output” folder. Expand the folder, then expand a folder named “html”. Open the file ‘index.html’ .

    It will open ReportNG HTML Interactive report as
