webdriver.ie.driver System Property setting driver executable

0 votes

I am using Selenium for automating the tests. My application exclusively uses IE, it will not work on other Browsers.

Below is the code:

import org.openqa.selenium.ie.InternetExplorerDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

public class Test {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        final String sUrl = "http://www.google.co.in/";                             


        WebDriver oWebDriver = new InternetExplorerDriver();


        WebElement oSearchInputElem = oWebDriver.findElement(By.name("q")); // Use name locator to identify the search input field.

        oSearchInputElem.sendKeys("Selenium 2");

        WebElement oGoogleSearchBtn = oWebDriver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@name='btnG']"));  


        try {


        } catch(InterruptedException ex) {





Below is the error:

The path to the driver executable must be set by the webdriver.ie.driver system property; for more information, see https://github.com/SeleniumHQ/selenium/wiki/InternetExplorerDriver. The latest version can be downloaded from http://www.seleniumhq.org/download/ Jun 12, 2012 4:18:42 PM org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultRequestDirector tryExecute INFO: I/O exception (java.net.SocketException) caught when processing request: Software caused connection abort: recv failed Jun 12, 2012 4:18:42 PM org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultRequestDirector tryExecute

Can someone help me on this?

First, you will need InternetExplorer driver executable on your system. You can download it from http://www.seleniumhq.org/download/.Extract it on your System. My location is  C:\Selenium\iexploredriver.exe

Here is the Java code pasted from my Selenium project:

       File file = new File("C:/Selenium/iexploredriver.exe");

       System.setProperty("webdriver.ie.driver", file.getAbsolutePath());

WebDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();

You must set this property before you initialize driver
