What is the use of @Test(threadPoolSize=x)?

In TestNG, the @Test(threadPoolSize=x) annotation defines the number of threads to be used while running a test method. It instructs TestNG to construct a thread pool to run the test procedure in several threads. The test method's running time will be considerably reduced by using a thread pool.

For example, if you have a test method that requires many threads to be executed for improved performance or to mimic concurrent usage, you may use the @Test(threadPoolSize=6) annotation to run the test method with 6 threads.

Here is a code snippet to understand it better:

 @Test(invocationCount = 6, threadPoolSize = 6)
  public void testThreadPools() {

  System.out.printf("Thread Id : %s%n", Thread.currentThread().getId());

We have a dedicated blog for TestNG annotation where you will learn about it with practical examples.
