  • Hello Srinivas , thanks for guidence ,
    After getting intalled successfully i am getting error

  • Hi Srinivas,
    I have a question but not sure if you can help me.
    I just downloaded the latest IntelliJ with Maven installed. My IntelliJ is not recognizing TestNG annotations.

    Do I have to download some extra plugin(s) or files and perform additional setups?
    I’m asking because TestNG is supposed to come “bundled” with IntelliJ according to IntelliJ itself and according to the website…
    So I was assuming (perhaps wrongly) that it would work straight out-of-the-box. Thank you for any help. Happy Makar Sankranti day!

  • Hi Srinivas,

    After following the process issue doesnot resolve. Is their any alternative? Number of errors increased.

      Need to see what kind of errors you are getting also, there might be a new string to get TestNG also nowadays with the latest eclipse we are able to install from marketplace itself
