How to Run Safari Driver in Selenium Using Java?
Selenium is a well-known software used for software testing purposes. Selenium consists of three parts. One is Selenium IDE, one is Selenium Webdriver & the last one is Selenium Grid. Among these Selenium Webdriver is the most important one. Using Webdriver online website testing can be done. There are three main Webdrivers present. For the Chrome browser, ChromeDriver is present. For the Firefox browser, Gecko Driver is applicable. And for Microsoft Edge, there will be MSEdgeDriver present. Excluding these, many more drivers are present for other browsers. In this article, the process of running SafariWebdriver is implemented. It is useful for those who use Mac OS. This simple Java program can be run.
- For running SafariDriver, the Java jdk version must be installed in the machine previously.
- The latest version of Safari should be installed.
- It is preferable to install Eclipse IDE on the machine so that running this code will be easier.
- The most important prerequisite is latest SafariDriver should be downloaded on the machine.
- Here, using SafariDriver, the home page of Google is going to open. For, that some methods need to be imported.
- First, the Google home page link is to be stored in a string.
- Then in the program, the property of the browser is to be set. setProperty() method is going to be used here.
- In the setProperty() method, the first argument is to be the Webdriver that is to be going to use. Here, using SafariDriver specifically that argument have to be passed. And in the second argument, the location of the SafariDriver.exe is to be passed.
Note: In this case, SafariDriver.exe is stored in Eclipse, so maybe the location seems different. But also, a complete File Explorer path can also be passed.
- Then a new object called driver should be implemented which is a type of WebDriver. Here, in this case, it will be SafariDriver.
- Then using that driver object, the get() method will be used. This get() method of WebDrivers helps to open some URLs provided. Here the home page of Google is going to be opened. So, only the string where the URL has been stored will be passed. Executing this method will go to open a new Chrome window.
- Then the sleep() method is going to be implemented. This delays the programs for some time. So that the output can be visible easily.
- At last, the opened Safari window has to be closed. For that reason, the quit() method is going to be implemented.
Below is the complete implementation of the above approach:
If the above code is run, then a new Safari Window will be opened. This open window will be controlled by SafariDriver.exe.
Hence, the program runs successfully.
