JUnit Display Name - @DisplayName With Examples

JUnit @DisplayName annotation is used to provide a custom name for the test class and test methods. We can use spaces, special characters, and even emojis in the display name.

Let’s see some examples of JUnit Jupiter @DisplayName annotation.

JUnit Jupiter @DisplayName annotation doesn’t provide any testing benefits. However, it can be used to provide information about the test methods that show in reporting and can be understood easily by any non-technical user too.
