Not able to launch IE browser using Selenium2 (Webdriver) with Java

I'm not able to launch IE browser to run my selenium automated tests written in Java. I'm using Windows 7 and IE 9. Below is my code:

Please find the attachment.enter image description here

public class GoogleNews {
private WebDriver driver;
private String baseUrl;
private StringBuffer verificationErrors = new StringBuffer();
ArrayList al = new ArrayList();
public void setUp() throws Exception {
//driver = new FirefoxDriver();
driver =new InternetExplorerDriver();
baseUrl = "";


public void testApple() throws Exception {


It needs to set same Security level in all zones. To do that follow the steps below:

  1. Open IE
  2. Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Security
  3. Set all zones (Internet, Local intranet, Trusted sites, Restricted sites) to the same protected mode, enabled or disabled should not matter.

Finally, set Zoom level to 100% by right clicking on the gear located at the top right corner and enabling the status-bar. Default zoom level is now displayed at the lower right.
