java −version

  • Then the selenium−java jar file is to be extracted.

  • Open an IDE say, Eclipse.

  • Create a Java project.

  • Associate the selenium−java jar files to the project.

  • Add the classpath of the selenium−java jar to the project.

  • Export a script to a Java file from the Selenium IDE and add it to the Java project.

  • Run the Selenium server with the command −

java −jar selenium−server−standalone−<version−number>.jar
  • Run the test from the Java IDE or from the command line.
