How to run acceptance tests (with TestNG) from gradle?


I’m new to Gradle (and Groovy).

I have a gradle java project, containing acceptance tests (for a system under test running on a specific target hardware). The acceptance tests are written in Java using TestNG as the test engine. For example, I have a project structure something like this:

src/main/java -----

src/main/resources --testng.xml

src/test/java -----

How can I configure the gradle build script to run the testng.xml file? Eventually I would like to have the testng.xml executed my the Gradle plugin in Jenkins.

Note! I don’t want to run the Unit tests in this stage (as that should be taken care of elsewhere). I want to run the tests pointed out by the testng.xml.

I have googled and looked at these gradle documentations: * * * but could not find any working examples :frowning:

Further on, I might add more testng suites under “src/main/resources”, is there a way to tell gradle wich testng suite to choose (preferably from Jenkins or command line).

I’m using: $ gradle -v

Thanks in advance, Alex

You can specify which testng suites to execute in a test task using the following:

test {
     useTestNG {
         suites 'src/main/resources/testng.xml'
