Test on Internal Networks

BrowserStack enables you to run your TestNG automated tests on your internal development environments, on localhost, and from behind a corporate firewall. This feature is called “Local Testing”.

Local Testing establishes a secure connection between your machine and the BrowserStack cloud. Once you set up Local Testing, all URLs work out of the box, including HTTPS URLs and those behind a proxy or firewall.

Configuring your TestNG tests for Local Testing takes just three steps:

Step 1: Download and install the BrowserStackLocal binary:

<!-- Install using maven -->
<dependency>
    <groupId>com.browserstack</groupId>
    <artifactId>browserstack-local-java</artifactId>
    <version>0.1.0</version>
</dependency>

Step 2: Next, you need to update your TestNG config file, local.conf.json, and set the browserstack.local capability to true:

// local.conf.json
{
  "server": "hub-cloud.browserstack.com",
  "user": "YOUR_USERNAME",
  "key": "YOUR_ACCESS_KEY",

  "capabilities": {
    "name": "Bstack-[TestNG] Local Test",
    "browserstack.local": true
  },

  "environments": {
    "chrome": {
      "browser": "chrome"
    }
  }
}
// local.testng.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE suite SYSTEM "http://testng.org/testng-1.0.dtd">
<suite name="Local">
    <test name="LocalTest">
        <parameter name="config" value="local.conf.json"/>
        <parameter name="environment" value="chrome"/>
        <classes>
            <class name="com.browserstack.LocalTest"/>
        </classes>
    </test>
</suite>

You can use the following sample test case, which is in our GitHub repo. This test case navigates to the local server which you can use to verify if your Local test connection has been setup correctly:

public class LocalTest extends BrowserStackTestNGTest {

    @Test
    public void test() throws Exception {
        driver.get("http://bs-local.com:45691/check");

        Assert.assertTrue(driver.getPageSource().contains("Up and running"));
    }
}

Step 3: You can now run your TestNG test using BrowserStack Local with the following command:

# Run using maven

mvn test -P local
