Chrome WebDriver Test with Selenium Java API


How to create a test program using Chrome WebDriver with Selenium Java API?



Here is a simple test program that the Chrome WebDriver Test with the Selenium Java API:

C:\fyicenter> type

import org.openqa.selenium.*;
public class ChromeTest {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
     WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

Compile and run it with the Selenium Client JAR file:

C:\fyicenter> javac -classpath \
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\client-combined-3.141.59.jar \

C:\fyicenter> java -classpath \
   \fyicenter\selenium\java\libs\commons-exec-1.3.jar \

As you can see, we are not able to create the session: "session not created exception". The default ChromeDriver version is 2.16, which is not compatible with Selenium WebDriver 3.141. See next tutorial on how to fix it.
