I am using Selenium webdriver 2.0 in JUnit framework. I need to generate a report on my tuned both (positive and negative) test cases.

NOTE: We have an option to generate report by default in "TESTNG" framework. I need a solution to create in JUnit.

You didn't say whether you were using Ant or something else. I will assume you are more interested in the "positive and negative" part of the question than how to invoke the JUnit test runner from your build tool.

You can register a TestWatcher to monitor what happens during a test run. The JUnit test runner will invoke methods on the TestWatcher when significant events occur. You can override those methods to insert logging code for passing/failing tests. Here is some sample code:

import org.junit.Assert;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.junit.Rule;
import org.junit.runner.Description;
import org.junit.rules.TestWatcher;
public class positive {   
    public TestWatcher watchman = new TestWatcher() {
        protected void failed(Throwable e,Description d) {
        System.out.println("FAILED: "+d.getClassName()+"."+d.getMethodName());

    protected void succeeded(Description d) {
        System.out.println("PASSED: "+d.getClassName()+"."+d.getMethodName());

    public void fails() {
    Assert.fail("I am a failure");

    public void passes() {

When you run that from the command line, you will see something like this:

$ java -cp $HOME/software/junit/target/*:$HOME/software/junit/lib/*:$PWD org.junit.runner.JUnitCore positive
JUnit version 4.12-SNAPSHOT
.PASSED: positive.passes
.FAILED: positive.fails
Time: 0.007
There was 1 failure:
1) fails(positive)
java.lang.AssertionError: I am a failure
    at org.junit.Assert.fail(Assert.java:88)
    at positive.fails(positive.java:23)
    at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
    at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:57)
    at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:43)

Tests run: 2,  Failures: 1

With Junit you can use ant to generate the reports in a html file. you have to configure the build.xml in ant to get the results in html.
