TestNG Test Annotations Order

TestNG Test Annotations Order

Don't know about you, but i keep forgetting the right order of Test run Annotations order. Especially if i work on JUnit and TestNG projects at the same time ( yeah, it's quite common). So, this article is basically for me in the first place - so i could look up into it when i forget the right order. I saw this simple solution in one of the StackOverflow answers and wanted to save it for me. Maybe it will help you as well.

public class AnnotationsTest {

    @BeforeSuite(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void beforeSuite() {
        System.out.println("@BeforeSuite");
    }

    @BeforeClass(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void beforeClass() {
        System.out.println("@BeforeClass");
    }

    @BeforeTest(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void beforeTest() {
        System.out.println("@BeforeTest");
    }

    @BeforeMethod(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void beforeMethod() {
        System.out.println("@BeforeMethod");
    }

    @AfterSuite(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void afterSuite() {
        System.out.println("@AfterSuite");
    }

    @AfterClass(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void afterClass() {
        System.out.println("@AfterClass");
    }

    @AfterTest(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void afterTest() {
        System.out.println("@AfterTest");
    }

    @AfterMethod(alwaysRun = true)
    public static void afterMethod() {
        System.out.println("@AfterMethod");
    }

    @Test
    public void test() {
        System.out.println("Test");
    }

    @Test
    public void test2() {
        System.out.println("Test2");
    }
}

And the output is the answer to our question :

[TestNG] Running:

@BeforeSuite
@BeforeTest
@BeforeClass
@BeforeMethod
Test  
@AfterMethod
@BeforeMethod
Test2  
@AfterMethod
@AfterClass
@AfterTest
@AfterSuite
