Node.js Question

Gulp Protractor: selenium webdriver exited status 1

I've been using Bangular (an excellent MEAN stack Yeoman generator) to create a project and all was going well until I did a recent series of npm updates to the project. Now on my project (and on their project too) I get an error when running their gulp-protractor task (which worked fine in the past).

I have included full output for reference, in case it helps - error is half way down (scroll the code box):

I'm not sure what the error code means (as in '1' means 'not passing', but what does that mean - was it tests that failed, or the did the driver crash out for some reason??

I'm pretty sure that it's an issue of packages not working well together as they are updated; I'm just hoping that someone can throw light on it, or may have experienced similar recently in some way...

Thanks

UPDATE



On initial investigation it appears that this problem doesn't occur with selenium version 2.45.0. Now, exactly where in the chain of 'gulp protractor -> protractor -> webdriver -> selenium' that error occurs is up for discussion. I think this is going to end with an automation patch being required or... :/

Answer

From angular/protractor#2638:

Try installing Java through brew cask instead of the standard .pkg:

brew cask install java
