How to run Google Chrome with Selenium WebDriver?

 

 

Problem:

We want to Run all our testcases using Google Chrome browser using selenium Webdriver.

 

Solution:

 

Lets try to open Chrome as we open firefox using selenium WebDriver.

 

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;


public class ChromeDriver1 {
 public static void main(String[] args) {

 WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
 driver.manage().window().maximize();
 driver.get("http://google.com");
 }

}

 

When Run above code we get following error >>>>

The path to the driver executable must be set by the webdriver.chrome.driver system property

The path to the driver executable must be set by the webdriver.chrome.driver system property

 

 

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: The path to the driver executable must be set by the webdriver.chrome.driver system property; for more information, see http://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/ChromeDriver. The latest version can be downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/chromedriver/downloads/list
 at com.google.common.base.Preconditions.checkState(Preconditions.java:176)
 at org.openqa.selenium.remote.service.DriverService.findExecutable(DriverService.java:105)
 at org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriverService.createDefaultService(ChromeDriverService.java:69)
 at org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver.<init>(ChromeDriver.java:107)
 at ChromeDriver1.main(ChromeDriver1.java:8)

 

What this error try to explain.

That says that to run chrome using selenium webdriver. We have to follow following 2 steps:

1. Download ChromeDriver server for win

2. Set system property

Download chromedriver.exe and put this in appropriate driver. We put in C:/ drive for our example.

 

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class ChromeDriver1 {
 public static void main(String[] args) {

//Among the facilities provided by the System class are standard input, standard output, and error output streams; access to externally defined "properties"; a means of loading files and libraries; and a utility method for quickly copying a portion of an array.
 System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\chromedriver.exe");

WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
 driver.manage().window().maximize();
 driver.get("http://google.com");
 }

}
