Running Selenium Webdriver Test In Google Chrome

You can read my THIS POST to know how to run selenium webdriver test of software application in Mozilla Firefox browser. As you know, webdriver software testing tool support Google Chrome browser too. You need to do something extra for launching webdriver test in in Google chrome browser. Let me describe you steps to launch webdriver test in Google Chrome for software web application.

Create selenium webdriver data driven framework from scratch @This Page.

Download ChromeDriver server
First of all, download latest version of ChromeDriver server for webdriver software testing tool. You can download it directly from https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/chromedriver/downloads. Current latest version for win32 is "ChromeDriver 2.15" as shown bellow.



Click on "ChromeDriver 2.15" link. It will take you to download page.


Click on link shown above to download chrome driver zip file. On completion of download, extract zip file to D:/ drive.


Now in eclipse, create new project with name = 'chromeproject' and create new class with name = 'chromebrowser'. Don't forget to select 'public static void main(String[] args)' method during new java class creation. Write code as shown bellow in class file. 

package mytestpack;

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class chromebrowser {

 public static void main(String[] args) {
  System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "D:\\chromedriver_win32\\chromedriver.exe");
  WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
  driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
  driver.get("http://www.google.com");
  if (driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@name='q']")).isEnabled()) {
   System.out.println("Google search text box Is enabled.");
   driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@name='q']")).sendKeys("WebDriver Test successful.");
   driver.findElement(By.xpath("//button[@name='btnG']")).click();
   System.out.println("Google search completed.");
  } else {
   System.out.println("Google search test box Is Not enabled.");

  }
  driver.close();
 }
}

Look in to above example. I set path for Google chrome driver as System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "D:\\chromedriver_win32\\chromedriver.exe");

So now, your software web application's test will run in Google chrome browser. Learn how to execute webdriver test in Internet Explorer browser in THIS POST.

    2. t has a simple solution. Change your compiler compliance level from 1.4 to 1.7.

      Follow these steps in your eclipse:

      Right click on your java project and select Build Path -> Click on
      Configure Build Path...
      In project properties window, Click/select Java Compiler at the left
      panel
      At the right panel, change the Compiler compliance level from 1.4 to 1.7
      (Select which is higher version in your eclipse)
      Lastly Click on Apply and OK
      Now check your code. it will never show the same error.
