TestNG is good framework inspired by JUnit, It is having advanced features than JUnit. I tried to install TestNG eclipse plugin to my Eclipse version of Juno. But I got some hell errors. Finally I was failed to install that in online. Then I tried to install that in offline. Initially I did some research on how to install TestNG plugin in offline and I found different jars for different versions of eclipse and some online forum users stated that they still getting some configuration issues. Then I decided to build suitable version of TestNG plugin with my own Eclipse. Follow the below procedure for successful installation

Download TestNG Eclipse Plugin Project

Download TestNG from the Github ( https://github.com/cbeust/testng-eclipse ). Once you download the ZIP file, extract it. Now you can see testing-eclipse-plugin folder in it. This is the Eclipse plugin project that we have to build.

Import Eclipse Plugin Project

Open your Eclipse
Click on "File > Import"
Now select "General > Existing Projects into Workspace"
Now click on "Next"
Now click on "Browse"
Now select the folder "testing-eclipse-plugin"
Now click on "ok"
Project will be created
Now right click on the project and click on "export"
Now select "Plug-in Development > Deployable plug-ins and fragments"
Click on "Next"
Now click on "Browse" and select the target folder
Click on "Finish"
Jar will be generated as like shown in the below image
This is the plugin jar which we required
Now copy this jar and paste in "dropins" folder of eclipse
Now restart the eclipse, Now you can see all TestNG options in active mode
