Gradle – Integration of Selenium and JUnit5


The previous tutorial explained How to create Gradle project with Selenium and JUnit4 in a Gradle project. In this tutorial, I will explain how we can set up a Gradle project with Selenium and JUnit5.

Pre Requisite:

  1. Java 8 or above installed
  2. Eclipse or IntelliJ IDE installed
  3. Gradle Installed
  4. Environment variables JAVA_HOME and GRADLE_HOME are correctly configured

This framework consists of:

  1. Java 11
  2. JUnit Jupiter – 5.8.2
  3. JUnit Jupiter Engine – 5.8.2
  4. Gradle – 7.3.3 (Build Tool)
  5. Selenium – 4.3.0

Steps to set up Gradle Java Project for Selenium and JUnit5

  1. Download and Install Java on the system
  2. Download and setup Eclipse IDE on the system
  3. Setup Gradle on System
  4. Create a new Gradle Project
  5. Add Selenium and JUnit5 dependencies to the Gradle project
  6. Create Pages and Test Code for the pages
  7. Run the tests from Command Line
  8. Gradle Report generation

Project Structure

Implementation Steps

Step 1- Download and Install Java

Selenium needs Java to be installed on the system to run the tests. Click here to know How to install Java.

Step 2 – Download and setup Eclipse IDE on the system

The Eclipse IDE (integrated development environment) provides strong support for Java developers. Click here to know How to install Eclipse.

Step 3 – Setup Gradle

To build a test framework, we need to add several dependencies to the project. This can be achieved by any build tool. I have used Gradle Build Tool. Click here to know How to install Gradle.

Step 4 – Create a new Gradle Project

If you want to create the Gradle project from Eclipse IDE, click here to know How to create a Gradle Java project.

Step 5 – Add Selenium and JUnit5 dependencies to the Gradle project
 * This file was generated by the Gradle 'init' task.

plugins {
    // Apply the application plugin to add support for building a CLI application in Java.
    id 'application'

repositories {
    // Use Maven Central for resolving dependencies.

java {
    sourceCompatibility = 11
    targetCompatibility = 11

dependencies {
    // Use JUnit Jupiter for testing.
    testImplementation 'org.junit.jupiter:junit-jupiter:5.8.2'
    testRuntimeOnly 'org.junit.jupiter:junit-jupiter-engine:5.8.2'

    implementation ''
    implementation 'org.seleniumhq.selenium:selenium-java:4.4.0'
    implementation 'io.github.bonigarcia:webdrivermanager:5.3.0'

application {
    // Define the main class for the application.
    mainClass = 'com.example.App'

tasks.named('test') {
    // Use JUnit Platform for unit tests.
    useJUnitPlatform()  {
 testLogging {
        events "passed", "skipped", "failed"
        showStandardStreams = true

Step 6 – Create Pages and Test Code for the pages

We have used PageFactory model to build the tests. I have created a package named pages and created the page classes in that folder. Page class contains the locators of each web element present on that particular page along with the methods of performing actions using these web elements.

This is the BasePage that contains the PageFactory.initElements.

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

public class BasePage {
	  public WebDriver driver;

	  public BasePage(WebDriver driver) {
		  this.driver = driver;


Below is the code for LoginPage and HomePage


import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

public class LoginPage extends BasePage{
	 public LoginPage(WebDriver driver) {
	@FindBy(name = "username")
    public WebElement userName;
    @FindBy(name = "password")
    public WebElement password;
    @FindBy(xpath = "//*[@id='app']/div[1]/div/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[2]/form/div[1]/div/span")
    public WebElement missingUsernameErrorMessage;
    @FindBy(xpath = "//*[@id='app']/div[1]/div/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[2]/form/div[1]/div/span")
    public WebElement missingPasswordErrorMessage;
    @FindBy(xpath = "//*[@id='app']/div[1]/div/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[2]/form/div[3]/button")
    public WebElement login;
    @FindBy(xpath = "//*[@id='app']/div[1]/div/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[2]/div/div[1]/div[1]/p")
    public  WebElement errorMessage;
    public String getMissingUsernameText() {
        return missingUsernameErrorMessage.getText();
    public String getMissingPasswordText() {
        return missingPasswordErrorMessage.getText();
    public String getErrorMessage() {
        return errorMessage.getText();
    public void login(String strUserName, String strPassword) {



import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

public class HomePage extends BasePage {

	public HomePage(WebDriver driver) {

	  @FindBy(xpath = "//*[@id='app']/div[1]/div[2]/div[2]/div/div[1]/div[1]/div[1]/h5")
	  public  WebElement homePageUserName;

	    public String getHomePageText() {
	       return homePageUserName.getText();


Here, we have BaseTests Class also which contains the common methods needed by other test pages.

import java.time.Duration;
import org.junit.jupiter.api.AfterEach;
import org.junit.jupiter.api.BeforeEach;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import io.github.bonigarcia.wdm.WebDriverManager;

public class BaseTests {
	public WebDriver driver;
	public final static int TIMEOUT = 10;
    public void setup() {
	    driver = new ChromeDriver();

    public void tearDown() {


import org.junit.jupiter.api.Test;
import org.junit.jupiter.params.ParameterizedTest;
import org.junit.jupiter.params.provider.CsvSource;
import static org.junit.jupiter.api.Assertions.assertEquals;
import org.junit.jupiter.api.Disabled;

public class LoginPageTests extends BaseTests{
    public void invalidCredentials(String username, String password) {
	    LoginPage objLoginPage = new LoginPage(driver);
    	objLoginPage.login(username, password);
    	// Verify Error Message
    	 assertEquals("Invalid credentials",objLoginPage.getErrorMessage());
    public void validLogin() {
	    LoginPage objLoginPage = new LoginPage(driver);
    	objLoginPage.login("Admin", "admin123");
    	HomePage objHomePage = new HomePage(driver);
    	// Verify Home Page
    	 assertEquals("Employee Information",objHomePage.getHomePageText());
    public void missingUsername() {
	    LoginPage objLoginPage = new LoginPage(driver);
    	objLoginPage.login("", "admin123");
    	// Verify Error Message
   	     assertEquals("Invalid credentials",objLoginPage.getMissingUsernameText());
    @Test @Disabled
    public void missingPassword() {
	    LoginPage objLoginPage = new LoginPage(driver);
    	objLoginPage.login("admin", "");
    	// Verify Error Message
   	     assertEquals("Invalid credentials",objLoginPage.getMissingPasswordText());

Step 7 – Run the tests from Command Line

Note:- As you can see, my project has two parts – GradleSeleniumJUnit5_Demo and app.

Go to the app project and run the tests, using the below command.

gradle clean test

The output of the above program is

Step 8 – Gradle Report generation

Once the test execution is finished, refresh the project. We will see a folder – GradleReports. This report is generated when the tests are executed through the command line.

This folder contains index.html.

Right-click on index.html and select open with Web Browser. This report shows the summary of all the tests executed. As you can see that Failed tests are selected (highlighted in blue), so the name of the test failed along with the class name is displayed here.

This report contains detailed information about the failed test, which is shown below.

This shows the list of all the tests – passed, failed, or ignored.
