Can we get the HTTP Response Code in Selenium with Java?

SeleniumAutomation TestingTesting Tools

We can get the HTTP response code in Selenium webdriver with Java. Some of the response codes are – 2xx, 3xx, 4xx and 5xx. The 2xx response code signifies the proper condition, 3xx represents redirection, 4xx shows resources cannot be identified and 5xx signifies server problems.

To obtain the response code we shall use the HttpURLConnection class. To have a link to the URL, the method openConnection is used. Also, we have to use the setRequestMethod where the vale Head is to be passed as a parameter.

We have to create an instance of the HttpURLConnection class and then apply the connect method on it. Finally, to obtain the response code the method getResponseCode is used.

Example

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.HttpURLConnection;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.net.URLConnection;
public class GetHttpResponse{
   public static void main(String[] args) throws
   MalformedURLException, IOException {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
         "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      //implicit wait
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      //URL launch
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm");
      // establish, open connection with URL
      HttpURLConnection cn = (HttpURLConnection)new URL("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm ").openConnection();
      // set HEADER request
      cn.setRequestMethod("HEAD");
      // connection initiate
      cn.connect();
      //get response code
      int res = cn.getResponseCode();
      System.out.println("Http response code: " + res);
      driver.quit();
   }
}

Output
