As you're sending emailable-reports while your test is running you're getting FileNotFoundException .Reports get generated only after test execution.

EDIT : If you're sending your emailable reports for the test which has already been executed then you will get previous test report as the current test is still running.

I have explained about the solution to this problem in this Post

I want to send a mail when ever the test case is failed. So I am trying to attach the emailable-report.html file because it's having all the data. so I am trying attach that

You can send the mail with the error which occurred but you cannot attach the report in the mail as the test is still executing

//This method will automatically be called if a test fails
            public void onTestFailure(ITestResult result) {

                //returns the test which failed

                //create an object of the send mail class and call the method which send the mail and pass the test name which failed as an argument to it.


If you want to attach reports then you have to set it as a post build option either using jenkins or tools like maven,ant.Or the other option is to generate your own custom report from the test results which you have got from methods onTestSuccess(passed tests),onTestFailure(failed tests),onTestSkipped(skipped tests)

Hope this helps you...Kindly get back if you have any doubts

  • Hello Vicky Thanks for your reply and answer. I am using the CustomListenter by implementing ITestListener in that onTestFailure() , i was implemented the logic to send an email.Because I want to send an email if test case was failed

  • Hi @QAMember I can't understand your question...Do you want to send mail only on Testfailure and you don't want to attach email-able report

  • @QAMember you cannot attach the email report on your 'onTestFailure' method as test is still executing and report has not been generated...pls refer my above edit
