Yet another TestNG parameter testing example, with @DataProvider.

1. CharUtil Class

Let’s say, a class to convert a character to ASCII or vice verse, how can you unit test it with TestNG?

CharUtils.java

package com.mkyong.testng.examples.parameter;

/**
 * Character Utility class
 * 
 * @author mkyong
 * 
 */
public class CharUtils {
	/**
	 * Convert the characters to ASCII value
	 * 
	 * @param character character
	 * @return ASCII value
	 */
	public static int CharToASCII(final char character) {
		return (int) character;
	}

	/**
	 * Convert the ASCII value to character
	 * 
	 * @param ascii ascii value
	 * @return character value
	 */
	public static char ASCIIToChar(final int ascii) {
		return (char) ascii;
	}
}

2. TestNG @DataProvider Example

To test it, create a @Test method which accept two parameters (character and expected ASCII), and the test data is passing from data provider.

CharUtilsTest.java

package com.mkyong.testng.examples.parameter;

import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.DataProvider;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;
/**
 * Character Utils Testing
 * @author mkyong
 *
 */
public class CharUtilsTest {
 
	@DataProvider
	public Object[][] ValidDataProvider() {
		return new Object[][]{
			{ 'A', 65 },{ 'a', 97 },
			{ 'B', 66 },{ 'b', 98 },
			{ 'C', 67 },{ 'c', 99 },
			{ 'D', 68 },{ 'd', 100 },
			{ 'Z', 90 },{ 'z', 122 },
			{ '1', 49 },{ '9', 57 }
		};
	}
 
	@Test(dataProvider = "ValidDataProvider")
	public void CharToASCIITest(final char character, final int ascii) {
		
		   int result = CharUtils.CharToASCII(character); 
		   Assert.assertEquals(result, ascii);
		   
	}
 
	@Test(dataProvider = "ValidDataProvider")
	public void ASCIIToCharTest(final char character, final int ascii) {
		
		   char result = CharUtils.ASCIIToChar(ascii); 
		   Assert.assertEquals(result, character); 
		   
	}
}
