We can integrate Sikuli scripts into Selenium webdriver. Sikuli is an automation tool which is open-source. It has the feature to capture the images on the elements as well as perform operations on them.

Some of the advantages of Sikuli are −

  • Desktop or Windows applications can be automated.

  • Can be used for flash testing.

  • Can be used on platforms like mobile, Mac, and Linux.

  • It is based on image recognition technique.

  • Can be easily integrated with Selenium.

import org.sikuli.script.Screen;
public class SikuliIntegrate{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("",       "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      // Screen class to access Sikuli methods
      Screen s = new Screen();
      //object of Pattern to specify image path
      Pattern e = new Pattern("C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Image.png");
      //add wait time
      s.wait(e, 5);
      //enter text and click
      s.type(e, "Selenium");;
