Migrate Selenium/TestNG/JUnit projects to Katalon Studio

Important:
  • Install Gradle version 5 or prior. You can download from the Gradle website here: Gradle.

To migrate Selenium/TestNG/JUnit scripts to a Katalon Studio project, do as follows:

  1. Create a new project in Katalon Studio. Go to File > New > Project.

    Create a new project

  2. Build project dependencies.

    2.1 Open the .gradle file and add the Java dependencies of your Selenium/TestNG/JUnit project.

    Note:
    • You only need to add the JUnit/TestNG project dependencies that are not Selenium dependencies.
    • Katalon Studio has bundled TestNG, JUnit and Selenium dependencies, you don't need to declare those dependencies again.

    Selenium migration gradle

    2.2 Open the Command Prompt or Terminal and navigate to the folder of your project. Enter gradle katalonCopyDependencies, then wait for the Gradle to build successfully.

    Selenium migration build successful

    2.3 Reopen the project to reload all the dependencies.

  3. Copy and paste the source code of your Selenium/TestNG/JUnit project in the Include/scripts/groovy folder of your Katalon project.

    Add TestNG source code

    Add TestND source code

  4. Copy and paste other resources of your Selenium/TestNG/JUnit project in the Include folder of your Katalon project (if any).

    Add TestNG resoureces

  5. To reload the source code and resources from your Selenium/TestNG/JUnit project, right-click the Include folder, then click Refresh.

    Reload TestNG source code and resources

  6. Create a test case that includes TestNG keywords to run TestNG test suites or JUnit test classes. To learn more about TestNG keywords, see above: Built-in TestNG/JUnit keywords.

    Create test case using TestNG/JUnit keywords

    For real-time monitoring and better reporting capabilities, consider integrating your project with Katalon TestOps. See also Upload Test Results to Katalon TestOps from Katalon Studio.
