Using Selenium RC on server without browser?

Using Selenium RC on server without browser?

Post by Mean on Fri Jun 25, 2010 9:25 pm

Hi guys,

I want to automate testing using selenium and therefore I put my java written web applications on my server in the internet, selenium server, too, write my tests on my pc local, deploy them and want to start them on my server - so I can also use a cronjob saying: every night, 2 o'clock they get executed.

Now my question: Do I have to install a web browser on my server? Or does it also work without it anyway? I know selenium 2 can do so because of using webdriver, but what about selenium rc? Is there a possibility?

Thanks and best regards,

Felix

RC needs the browser, as it drives everything through Javascript, and doesn't emulate a browser itself. However, browsing the selenium 2.0 and webdriver documentation, it sounds like some implementations using those packages will require having broswers installed as well, they just won't actually run in a browser window.

Hi metman,

thanks for your repsonse. So, there's noch chance to use Selenium on a server and execute the tests only on the server without installing a browser on it?!

I didn't inform me that much about Selenium 2.0, so I didn't know, that there is probably a need for a browser.

Thanks and best regards,

Felix

Selenium isn't a broswer emulator, it just leverages JS to essentially hack in to an existing browser and execute actions through the broswer's engine. Put another way, it is a broswer driver, not a browser itself. Given that, no, it doesn't support what you are hoping.
