Standard output listener does not capture the correct test retry count


(hinling yeung) #1

Hi Everyone,

We are using testng & gradle to run our integration tests writtne in Java. In our code, we implemented the retry listener base on Martin Holladay’s blog post (https://martinholladay.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/webdriver-2-0-automatically-retry-failed-tests/). However, in the console output, the count is wrong and even the test got retried and pass, it will still mark the whole test as fail in stdout. Here’s a sample log:

Here’s how my gradle file test section looks like:

test {

testClassesDir(new File("build/classes/main"))
resultDir = new File("$buildDir/testruns/$fileName/reports")
resultDir.mkdirs()
getReports().getJunitXml().setDestination(resultDir)
getReports().getHtml().setDestination(resultDir)
println "==============> resultDir: " + getReports().getJunitXml().getDestination()
getTestListenerBroadcaster().eachWithIndex { item, index ->
    println "looping listeners..."
    println item.getClass()
    println index
}

systemProperty 'test_site_env', testSiteEnv
systemProperty 'run_code_coverage', runCodeCoverage
systemProperty 'tunnel_identifier', tunnelIdentifier
test.testLogging.showStandardStreams = true

useTestNG() {
    suites "$buildDir/testFarmTestngConfig/$fileName"
    useDefaultListeners(false)
    outputDirectory = resultDir
}

def testOptions = options {
    listeners.add("com.trulia.infrastructure.TestListener") //this is our custom test listener
}

//listeners = getTestListenerBroadcaster()

outputs.upToDateWhen {
    false
}
test {
    jvmArgs '-Xmx1024m', '-XX:MaxPermSize=512m', '-XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError', '-XX:+UseMembar'
}
}

It looks like gradle has it’s own test event listen and whatever I pass in thru the gradle options got ignored.

Hi Hinling,
Have you found any solution for this issue? I am also facing same issue but could not find any alternatives.

Thanks

Hi,

I am facing a similar issue when using the Spock-Framework for integration tests. If I run the single test everything works fine, but when executing the conplete set the captured System.out is wrong.
It also looks that some later test are not even executed.

Any idea is appreciated.

Remember the build.gradle file is a Groovy program. You can store the number of times a test was retried using the afterTest hook and then subtract this value from Gradle’s test counters when your suite is complete.
