JUnit 5 with Gradle Dependency

By | December 8, 2019

In this post we will learn how to configure Gradle Dependency for JUnit 5 and how to use them to create and execute JUnit Tests

To execute JUnit 5 tests using Gradle, we need minimum two dependencies.

1. JUnit Jupiter Engine Dependency

junit-jupiter-engine has internally dependency on and junit-platform-engine and junit-jupiter-api so if you add junit-jupiter-engine dependency then it will bring all three dependencies into class path.

junit-jupiter-api has all Junit annotations to write tests and extensions and junit-platform-engine has test engine implementation which is required at runtime to run the tests.

2. JUnit Platform Runner Dependency

We usually need junit-platform-runner for executing JUnit tests and test suites on JUnit Platform environment.

As junit-platform-runner is internally dependents on junit-platform-launcher  and junit-platform-suite-api  so if you add junit-platform-runner  dependency then it will bring all three dependencies into classpath.
