TestNG jar is missing from the classpath. Please share a sample project to reproduce.

Thank you, I got it to work by selecting "In whole project" (I had "In single module" selected) under the Configuration tab in the TestNG "Run/Debug Configurations." 

However, the prior configuration worked in IntelliJ IDEA 15, so to me, it seems that it may have come from a breaking change with newer IDE.
