Re: Remedy Testing Java question


Thank you so much LJ!  I have now resolved both errors per your directions below.  However, when I Run it now I get a different error Error:  Could not find or load main class mytestpack.OpenIE”.  Any ideas what that means?

If you are defining a Class, you must define a file named by the same name, and there can only be one class per file...so, the line 7 needs to be in a file named 'OpenIE.java', and it needs to be the only class definition in the file.


Line 12 is complaining because \ is an 'escape character', but in your string you have specified


C:\Program Files\Selenium\IEDriverServer_x64_2,53.1\IEDriverServer.exe


thus, it is trying to figure out what \P is and \S, etc......so, to use a literal backslash, and have it not be an escape character, you need to double up on them...so your string needs to look like this


C:\\Program Files\\Selenium\\IEDriverServer_x64_2,53.1\\IEDriverServer.exe


notice that all of them are now doubled?

Hello. I am learning to use Selenium WebDriver to do remedy testing.  I’ve created a basic Eclipse Java class and hoping someone here on the list can help me troubleshoot.  I’m working on a basic script that will simply open a Google webpage using Internet Explorer (IE). (Will be doing the same with FireFox later).  I’m getting errors on lines 7 and 12. 


Here is the code:


1    package mytestpack;


3    Import org.openqa.selenium.By;

4    import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

5    import org.openqa.selenium.ie.InternetExplorerDriver;


7     public class OpenIE  {


9      public static void main(String[]args) {

10   //TODO Auto-generated method stub

11   WebDriver driver;

12   System.setProperty(“webdriver.ie.driver”, “C:\Program Files\Selenium\IEDriverServer_x64_2,53.1\IEDriverServer.exe”);

13   driver=new InternetExplorerDriver();

14   driver.get(https://google.com;);

15   }

16     }



Error on line 7 is “The public type OpenIE must be dfined in its own file”

Error on line 12 is “Invalid escape sequence (valid ones are \b \t \n \f \r \”\’\\)


Thank you in advance for your help!
