    Automation test reports are one of the important deliverable of Automation executions. Getting those automation reports in the mail automatically is the another important concept. Here, I would like to share the information about how to send your automation reports as mail report with attachment while automation of your application with Java or C# languages.

Send automation test reports with Java language:

Prerequisites:

        Need to add javax.mail dependency in pom.xml of your automation project (if it is a Maven project. Otherwise need to add javax.mail jar in your Java Build Path of your Java project). Following is the javax.mail dependency,

<dependency>
<groupId>javax.mail</groupId>
<artifactId>mail</artifactId>
<version>1.4.7</version>
</dependency>

Following sendMailReport() method helps to send test automation reports with attachment,

public static void sendMailReport() throws AddressException, MessagingException {
String subject = “”, message = “”, maillist = “”, EMAIL_REPORT_FOLDER = “”;
subject = “Automation Test Report_”;
message = “Please find the attached report to get details.”;
maillist = “mail_lists_of_recipients”;
EMAIL_REPORT_FOLDER = “path_to_automation_report_folder”;
Properties properties = new Properties();
properties.put(“mail.smtp.host”, “smtp.gmail.com”);
properties.put(“mail.smtp.port”, “587”);
properties.put(“mail.smtp.auth”, “true”);
properties.put(“mail.smtp.starttls.enable”, “true”);
final String userName;
final String password;
userName = “sender_mail_address”;
password = “sender_mail_account_password”;
properties.put(“mail.user”, userName);
properties.put(“mail.password”, password);

Authenticator auth = new Authenticator() {
public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
return new PasswordAuthentication(userName, password);
}
};
Session session = Session.getInstance(properties, auth);
DateFormat dff = new SimpleDateFormat(“EEE MMM dd, yyyy HH:mm:ss z”);
Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(userName));
msg.addRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, InternetAddress.parse(maillist));
msg.setSubject(subject + ” – ” + dff.format(new Date()).toString());
msg.setSentDate(new Date());

// creates message part
MimeBodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
messageBodyPart.setContent(message, “text/html”);

// creates multi-part
Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();
multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

// adds attachments
List<String> filesList = new ArrayList<String>();
File[] files = new File(System.getProperty(“user.dir”) + EMAIL_REPORT_FOLDER).listFiles();
for (File file : files) {
if (file.isFile()) {
filesList.add(System.getProperty(“user.dir”) + EMAIL_REPORT_FOLDER + “/” + file.getName());
}
}
if (filesList != null && filesList.size() > 0) {
for (String filePath : filesList) {
MimeBodyPart attachPart = new MimeBodyPart();
try {
attachPart.attachFile(filePath);
} catch (IOException ex) {
ex.printStackTrace();
}
multipart.addBodyPart(attachPart);
}
}
// sets the multi-part as e-mail’s content
msg.setContent(multipart);
// sends the e-mail
Transport.send(msg);
}

Send automation test reports with C# language:

       The System.Net.Mail namespace contains classes used to send electronic mail to a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server for delivery. Following Send_Report_In_Mail() method helps to send test automation reports with attachment,

public void Send_Report_In_Mail()
{
MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
SmtpClient SmtpServer = new SmtpClient(“smtp.gmail.com”);
mail.From = new MailAddress(“sender_mail_address”);
mail.To.Add(“mail_lists_of_recipients”);

StringBuilder TimeAndDate = new StringBuilder(DateTime.Now.ToString());
TimeAndDate.Replace(“/”, “_”);
TimeAndDate.Replace(“:”, “_”);

mail.Subject = “Automation Test Report_”+ TimeAndDate;

mail.Body = “Please find the attached report to get details.”;

string actualPath = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory.Replace(“\\bin\\Debug”, “\\Test_Execution_Reports”); //Reports should stored in Test_Execution_Reports folder

var mostRecentlyModified = Directory.GetFiles(actualPath, “*.html”)
.Select(f => new FileInfo(f))
.OrderByDescending(fi => fi.LastWriteTime)
.First()
.FullName;

Attachment attachment;
attachment = new Attachment(mostRecentlyModified);
mail.Attachments.Add(attachment);

SmtpServer.Port = 587;
SmtpServer.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(“sender_mail_address”, “sender_mail_account_password”);
SmtpServer.EnableSsl = true;

SmtpServer.Send(mail);

}

     You can use those method in @AfterSuite if you are using TestNG. In case of NUnit(C#), you can use those method in [OneTimeTearDown]. Try to use above code snippet in your automation scripts to send your automation test report as mail report automatically.

make it perfect !
