I'm Getting error as soon as I Initialize driver = new ChromeDriver();

+2 votes
below is my code.

package com.salesforce.pageobject;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;

public class BaseClass {

// public String url =

// public String username =

// public String password =

public static WebDriver driver;

@BeforeClass

public void setup()

{

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",System.getProperty("user.dir")+"//Drivers//chromedriver.exe");

    driver = new ChromeDriver();

}

I'm getting error at very first line (package com.salesforce.pageobject;) and driver = new ChromeDriver();

when I initiaize WebDriver means when I write driver = new ChromeDriver();

Error that I get at package com.salesforce.pageobject; is below

(The type org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver cannot be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from required .class files)

for driver = new ChromeDriver(); it's Type mismatch: cannot convert from ChromeDriver to WebDriver

Hi Prajwal, this type of error occurs when you have added the external jars in the ModulePath. To resolve this issue, you can remove the external jars from the node "Modulepath". Select the node "Classpath" then add the external jars. Review that all the jars are under the node "Classpath"

If still getting the error "WebDriver cannot be resolved", after adding jar files to class path, go to Project -> Properties -> Java Compiler -> Change compiler level to 1.7 or so in Eclipse. This will resolve the errors.

Hi, This worked for me, thank you so much

But didnt understand the new package restriction issue?
Hey @Sowmya Anakamahadeva, there might be some dependency/compatibility issues with the old package. Hence upgrading it to new package would help.
