Other Utilities in Katalium Framework


TestNG provides a comprehensive mechanism for customizing parameters, which can be referred here.

In Katalium Framework, you can set default values for parameters in the file (example), or using at runtime using Java's system properties, e.g. mvn clean test -DkataBrowser=firefox. This is very handy when you do not want reconfigure unchanged parameters.

Default values of parameters can be accessed using the helper com.katalon.kata.helper.ParameterHelper.


Katalium Framework provides the class com.katalon.kata.helper.LogHelper to help retrieve org.slf4j.Logger instances with correct class names.

private static final Logger log = LogHelper.getLogger();"Open CURA home page.");

Sample output:

09:26:29.475 [main] INFO  com.katalon.kata.testng.TestTemplate - Make appointment with parameters
09:26:29.475 [main] INFO com.katalon.kata.testng.TestTemplate - Facility Hongkong CURA Healthcare Center
09:26:29.476 [main] INFO com.katalon.kata.testng.TestTemplate - VisitDate 27/12/2016
09:26:29.476 [main] INFO com.katalon.kata.testng.TestTemplate - Comment Please make appointment as soon as possible.
09:26:29.476 [main] INFO c.katalon.kata.selenium.PageTemplate - Open CURA home page.
09:26:38.528 [main] INFO c.katalon.kata.selenium.PageTemplate - Make appointment.

Logs will be printed out on the console and in TestNG XML reports.

Capture WebDriver actions

You can attach a custom to capture WebDriver events (source code):

package com.katalon.kata.sample.listener;

import com.katalon.kata.webdriver.WebDriverPool;
import org.testng.IExecutionListener;

public class EventListener implements IExecutionListener {
public void onExecutionStart() {
WebDriverPool webDriverPool = WebDriverPool.get();
webDriverPool.setAfterCreateDriverListener(driver -> {
driver.register(new WebDriverEventListener());

public void onExecutionFinish() {
