Simple way to execute failed test cases using Selenium

Hello Welcome to Selenium tutorial, Today we are going to discuss how to Execute failed test cases using Selenium

Most of the time we have faced this question in interviews that Can we execute only failed test cases in Selenium or can we identify only failed test cases in Selenium and re-run them.

I really love this feature of TestNG that you can run only failed test cases explicitly without any code. This can be easily done by running one simple testng-failed.xml.

Real-time Example

Take an example that you have one test suite of 100 test cases and once you start execution of test suite there  are a number of chances that some test cases will fail.Consider 15 test cases are failing out of 100 now you need to check why these test cases are failing so that you can analyze and find out the reason why they have failed.

Note- Your script can fail due to so many reasons some of them are

1- Some locator has been changed in application because the application is getting new feature- so in this case you need to modify your script in other words you have to refine your script.

You can not avoid maintenance of test script you always have to maintain your scripts 😉

2- Either functionality has been broken- in this case, you have to raise a defect and assign to the respective person.

 

I have  the Youtube video for the same. Kindly check.
