I am trying to use Selenium's latest version 3.4.0 in a maven project. I imported all Selenium's jars using below dependency:-

<dependency>

    <groupId>org.seleniumhq.selenium</groupId>

    <artifactId>selenium-java</artifactId>

    <version>3.4.0</version>

</dependency>

The problem is I am unable to resolve any dependency in my project in Eclipse for below code inside main method:-

public class FirefoxTest {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        FirefoxOptions options = new FirefoxOptions();

        options.setBinary("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe"); //This is the location where you have installed Firefox on your machine

        FirefoxDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(options);

        driver.get("http://www.google.com");

    }

}

What am I missing? Eclipse is unable to resolve FirefoxDriver type to any dependencies. Please help.

To work with Selenium 3.4.0 & Mozilla Firefox 53.x you need to download the latest geckodriver v0.16.1 from here. Save it in your machine & provide the absolute path of the geckodriver in your code.

Ensure that you have updated the pom.xml with the required dependency as follows:

<dependency>

<groupId>org.seleniumhq.selenium</groupId>

<artifactId>selenium-java</artifactId>

<version>3.4.0</version>

</dependency>

 

It is recommended to use the WebDriver interface rather than to use the FirefoxDriver implementation.

Your code will look like:

System.out.println("Welcome to Maven World"); System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver", "C:\\Utility\\BrowserDrivers\\geckodriver.exe"); WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(); driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10,TimeUnit.SECONDS); driver.navigate().to("http://www.google.com");

Provide the following commands to flush out the previous dependencies, install the new dependencies & execute your test:

>mvn clean 

>mvn install

>mvn test
