Run JBehave Tests in Parallel

On BrowserStack, you can run multiple JBehave tests at the same time across various browser, device, and OS combinations. This is called Parallel Testing. Parallel Testing gives you the same benefits as running a multi-threaded application.

With Parallel Testing, you can run the same test on different browser/device combinations i.e. cross-browser testing, or run different tests on the same or different browser/device combinations. Parallel Testing will help you reduce the run time of your test suite, resulting in faster build times and faster releases.

Run sample test in parallel

  1. Clone the jbehave-browserstack sample repo on GitHub, if not already done:
     git clone https://github.com/browserstack/jbehave-browserstack.git
     cd jbehave-browserstack
    
  2. Install the dependencies using mvn install

  3. Set up your credentials and browser/devices where you want to run your test, in the jbehave-browserstack/src/test/resources/conf/parallel.conf.json file as shown below:

    parallel.conf.json
     {
       "server": "hub-cloud.browserstack.com",
       "user": "YOUR_USERNAME",
       "key": "YOUR_ACCESS_KEY",
    
       "capabilities": {
         "name": "Bstack-[JBehave] Parallel Test",
         "browserstack.debug": true
       },
    
       "environments": [{
         "browser": "chrome"
       },{
         "browser": "firefox"
       },{
         "browser": "safari"
       },{
         "browser": "internet explorer"
       }]
     }
    
  4. Capabilities for each environment can be customized. You can generate custom capabilities for your tests using our capability builder. For example:

    "capabilities": {
         "name": "Bstack-[JBehave] Parallel Test",
         "browserstack.debug": true,
         "build": "This is my build name",
         "resolution": "1920x1080"
       },
    "environments": [{
         "browser": "chrome",
         "browser_version": "latest",
         "os": "Windows",
         "os_version": "10"
       },{
         "browser": "firefox",
         "browser_version": "latest-beta",
         "os": "Windows",
         "os_version": "10"
       },{
         "device": "iPhone 12 Pro",
         "real_mobile": "true",
         "os": "iPhone"
       },{
         "device": "Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra",
         "real_mobile": "true",
         "os": "Android"
       }]
    
  5. You can now run your tests in parallel on BrowserStack using the following command:

     mvn test -P parallel
    
Note: Achieve your test coverage and build execution time goals by using our calculator to understand how many parallel sessions you need.
