What is allure?

 

Allure is a flexible test report framework that not only shows a very concise representation of what have been tested in a neat web report form, but allows everyone participating in the development process to extract maximum of useful information from everyday execution of tests, with the possibility to add screenshots, logs, attachments and so on.

 

In order to get results, you need to:

  • • Add AllureRunListener to Junit
  • • Add AspectJ Weaver and respective properties
  • • Run test

 

Maven installation

You need to add the following to your POM.xml file:

<properties>
    <aspectj.version>1.7.4</aspectj.version>
    <allure.version>{latest-allure-version}</allure.version>
</properties>

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>ru.yandex.qatools.allure</groupId>
        <artifactId>allure-junit-adaptor</artifactId>
        <version>${allure.version}</version>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

<build>
    <plugins>
        <plugin>
            <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
            <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
            <version>2.14</version>
            <configuration>
                <testFailureIgnore>false</testFailureIgnore>
                <argLine>
                    -javaagent:${settings.localRepository}/org/aspectj/aspectjweaver/${aspectj.version}/aspectjweaver-${aspectj.version}.jar
                </argLine>
                <properties>
                    <property>
                        <name>listener</name>
                        <value>ru.yandex.qatools.allure.junit.AllureRunListener</value>
                    </property>
                </properties>
            </configuration>
            <dependencies>
                <dependency>
                    <groupId>org.aspectj</groupId>
                    <artifactId>aspectjweaver</artifactId>
                    <version>${aspectj.version}</version>
                </dependency>
            </dependencies>
        </plugin>
    </plugins>
</build>

There are multiple ways to run the build. The most simple way is to use command line:

mvn -Dtest=[class_name]#[test_methode] test

At this stage allure report should be generated by default in root directory

/home/path/to/project/target/surefire-reports/

This would produce a report with a minimum of information extracted from the xml data that will lack nearly all of the advanced allure features but will allow you to get a nice visual representation of executed tests.
