You are welcome.
For some reason I cannot find any java source code for testing of random generator;
I'm sure it  should be avaialable

This is code in C:

Hi,

TestNG gives some features that may be usefull for testing the random generator:

	private static List<Integer> randomResults = new ArrayList<Integer>(); 
	
	@Test(invocationCount=100, successPercentage=50)
	public void TestRandom() {
		Integer randomResult = random();
		if (randomResults.contains(randomResult)) {
			Assert.fail("result is returned before " + randomResult);
		} 
		System.out.println(randomResult);
		randomResults.add(randomResult);
	}
	
	
	public Integer random () {
		Double r1 = Math.random();
		Double r2 = r1 * 100; 
		return r2.intValue();
	}

Open in new window


pay attention add the @Test
