Selenium Grid Java Code Examples

These selenium grid java code examples uses a Gridlastic selenium grid for browser execution. The selenium grid hub endpoint, the video url and grid hub credentials are displayed after launching your Gridlastic selenium grid.

Example for Selenium version 3.14

test.java

// NOTE: RUN THIS EXAMPLE AS A MAVEN PROJECT WITH THE HUB AND VIDEO URL PARAMETERS LIKE
// GOAL: test -Dhub=https://USERNAME:ACCESS_KEY@HUB_SUBDOMAIN.gridlastic.com/wd/hub -DvideoUrl=VIDEO_URL
// USERNAME:ACCESS_KEY@HUB_SUBDOMAIN and VIDEO_URL is found in the Gridlastic dashboard after you start your selenium grid.

Java Selenium Proxy Example

Use a selenium proxy to route your tests via our hosted Squid proxy or use your own proxy locally to test behind firewall internal sites using Gridlastic Connect Proxy Setup.

String proxy_server = "hub_subdomain.gridlastic.com:8001"; // hosted Squid proxy on your selenium grid hub
//String proxy_server = "your_gridlastic_connect_subdomain.gridlastic.com:9999"; // An example Gridlastic Connect endpoint

org.openqa.selenium.Proxy proxy = new org.openqa.selenium.Proxy();
proxy.setHttpProxy(proxy_server).setFtpProxy(proxy_server).setSslProxy(proxy_server);
capabilities.setCapability(CapabilityType.PROXY, proxy)


NOTE: Gridlastic auto scaling requires all 3 test environment parameters platform, browser and browser version to be specified in each request in order to launch test nodes to fulfill test demand. Video recording is optional. See test environments for capabilities options.
It is important to ensure that "driver.quit()" is always called for proper test execution and creation of video recordings of failed tests.
