  • How to launch browser using Selenium WebDriver ?

    This article will present you with a complete idea about How to launch different browsers using selenium commands.

    We will learn below topics in this article

    Introduction of Browser launch Command 

    • Selenium WebDriver calls the native methods of the different browsers to automate them. 
    • Different browsers have different drivers which are used to automate for example FirefoxDriver for Firefox browser, ChromeDriver for Google Chrome, InternetExplorerDriver for Internet Explorer etc.

    For example for Launching Firefox browser below command is used 

    WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

    Meaning of WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

    Here, ‘WebDriver’ is an interface and we are creating a reference variable ‘driver’ of type WebDriver, instantiated using the ‘FireFoxDriver’ class.All the methods which are declared in webDriver interface are implemented by FirefoxDriver class.

     So creating a reference variable of type WebDriver assigns the driver object to different browser specific drivers.

    We can also create a reference variable of type FirefoxDriver like this-

    FirefoxDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

    Using the above command FirefoxDriver instance will get created and then we can use and act on methods implemented by FirefoxDriver and supported by Firefox Browser only.

    So when we will use other browsers for example at the the multi browser testing then we have to specifically create individual objects as below :

    InternetExplorerDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver(); 
    ChromeDriver driver =  new ChromeDriver();

    So if we use WebDriver driver  then we can use the already initialised driver for all browsers we want to automate e.g. Mozilla, Chrome, InternetExplorer, Safari etc.

    How to launch Browser using Selenium WebDriver.

    Launch Firefox Browser

    Below are the steps required to launch the Firefox browser.

      1. Download geckodriver.exe from here specific to your OS and save it somewhere on your computer.
      2. Set the System Property for “webdriver.gecko.driver” with the geckodriver.exe path – System.setProperty(“webdriver.gecko.driver”,”geckodriver.exe path”);
    package com.test;
    
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
    import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
    
    public class LaunchFirefoxBrowser {
    
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    
    // Creating a driver object
    WebDriver driver;
    
    // Setting webdriver.gecko.driver property
    System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver",
    pathToGeckoDriver + "\\geckodriver.exe");
    
    // Instantiating driver object and launching browser
    driver = new FirefoxDriver();
    
    // Using get() method to open a webpage
    driver.get("https://tutorialshut.com");
    
    // Closing the browser
    driver.quit();
    
    }
    
    }
    

    Launch Internet Explorer Browser

    Below are the steps required to launch the Internet Explorer browser.

      1. Download IEDriverServer.exe from here and save it somewhere on your computer.
      2. Set the System Property for “webdriver.ie.driver” with the IEDriverServer.exe path – System.setProperty(“webdriver.ie.driver”,”IEDriverServer.exe path”);
    package com.test;
    
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
    import org.openqa.selenium.ie.InternetExplorerDriver;
    
    public class LaunchIEBrowser {
    
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    
    // Creating a driver object
    WebDriver driver;
    
    // Setting webdriver.ie.driver property
    System.setProperty("webdriver.ie.driver",
    pathToIEDriver + "\\IEDriverServer.exe");
    
    // Instantiating driver object and launching browser
    driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();
    
    // Using get() method to open a webpage
    driver.get("https://tutorialshut.com");
    
    // Closing the browser
    driver.quit();
    
    }
    
    }
    
    

    Launch Chrome Browser

    Below are the steps required to launch the Chrome browser.

      1. Download chromeDriver.exe from here and save it somewhere on your computer.
      2. Set the System Property for “webdriver.chrome.driver” with the chromeDriver.exe path – System.setProperty(“webdriver.ie.driver”,”chromeDriver.exe path”);
    1. package com.test;
      
      import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
      import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
      
      public class LaunchChromeBrowser {
      
      public static void main(String[] args) {
      
      // Creating a driver object
      WebDriver driver;
      
      // Setting webdriver.chrome.driver property
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
      pathToChromeDriver + "\\chromeDriver.exe");
      
      // Instantiating driver object and launching browser
      driver = new ChromeDriver();
      
      // Using get() method to open a webpage
      driver.get("https://tutorialshut.com");
      
      // Closing the browser
      driver.quit();
      
      }
      
      }
