Hard and Soft dependencies in TestNG

Let us say test1 method depends on test2 method.

Hard dependencies

In this type of dependency, if test2 fails, test1 is not executed and marked as Skipped. This is the default dependency.

Soft dependencies

In this type of dependency, even if test2 fails, test1 is executed. This is achieved by adding alwaysRun=true as shown in below example.

@Test(dependsOnMethods = "org.softpost.Class2.test2", alwaysRun = true)
    public void test1(){
        System.out.println("Test1 from Class1");
    }
