Quickly learning ways to skip or ignore a test case in TestNG.

Ignoring a test

One can ignore a test during execution by simply adding enabled=false in the test. Example:

@Test(enabled = false)
   public void testPrintMessage() {
      System.out.println("Test to be ignored")


Another way is to use SkipException to skip the test. Below is the code example on how to use this exception

    public void testCaseSkipException(){
        System.out.println("Im in skip exception");
        throw new SkipException("Skipping this test");
