Software TestingAutomation TestingSelenium Web Driver

We can set Google Chrome in Selenium. Java JDK, Eclipse and Selenium webdriver should be configured in the system before setting up the Chrome browser.

Steps to set Google Chrome are −

  • Then, we have to select the Chrome driver link which is compatible with the operating system we are using.

  • A zip file gets downloaded. Extract and save the chromedriver.exe file in a location.

We can configure the chromedriver.exe file in the following ways −

  • By setting the System Properties in the Environment Variables. Go to the Start and type System and click on it. Select the Advanced System Settings. Then click on the Environment Variables from the Advanced. From the System Variables, select Path and click on Edit. Then click on New. Add the chromedriver.exe path and proceed.

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class ChromeSetup{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm");
   }
}
  • By setting the System Properties in the script. By adding the browser type and chromedriver.exe path as parameters to the System.setProperty method in the code.

Example

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class SetChromeBrw{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      // browser type and chromedrover.exe path as parameters
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
      "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm");
   }
}
