how to replay the testsuite(recorded in the IDE) from ccommandline?

on Tue Jan 03, 2012 7:35 pm
I’m a selenium newbie and need some help with this selenium-server stuff. I also read some Tutorials and entries in forum (the problem is thah a lot of them also talk about Selenium 1) and they all say the same but I just can’t get it work Sad

First, this is what I’m trying to do, or how I think it should work - please correct me here if i’m on the wrong path.
I make some tests with the IDE put them in a TestSuite, and can replay them with the same IDE. The Tests and TestSuite are saved as *.html. In a various Tutorials they say, that you could automate the replay without using the IDE by using something like this:

java –jar ./selenium-server-standalone-2.15.0.jar –htmlsuite *iexplore "" "d:\testing\selenium\rc\ts.html" "d:\testing\selenium\rc\result.html"

I have selenium-IDE 1.5.0 Firefox-Plugin and newest selenium-server-2.15.0

Whan i use only:
java –jar ./selenium-server-standalone-2.15.0.jar
it works, the sever/jetty started. but:
java –jar ./selenium-server-standalone-2.15.0.jar –htmlsuite *iexplore "" "d:\testing\selenium\rc\ts.html" "d:\testing\selenium\rc\result.html"
always gives me the :
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: ûjar
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: ûjar
at$ Source)
at Method)
at Source)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
Could not find the main class: ÔÇôjar. Program will exit.

Spend whole day yesterday, cant figure it out – is this the way it is supposed to work?

I just want to record the test with IDE and then replay them without IDE from the commandline. I don’t want to convert from html to Junit or what ever …

And btw. If this is not supposed to work as I described/wish, what ist the advantage of selenium. I mean if I have to convert everything I done in IDE in java or what ever, why not simply write the tests straight ahead in JWebUnit or so?

Can somebody shield some light here please.
