Java Question

Example Maven pom.xml for Java based Selenium WebDriver project for Firefox

I would like to automate

Firefox
using
Java
through a
Selenium WebDriver
project.

As I never used
Selenium
nor
Maven
before I'm not familiar with how to set up a suitable
Maven pom.xm
l file to create a project, which then can be imported into Eclipse.

On http://docs.seleniumhq.org/docs/03_webdriver.jsp#introducing-webdriver I found the following example for the opera browser:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
<modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
<groupId>MySel20Proj</groupId>
<artifactId>MySel20Proj</artifactId>
<version>1.0</version>
<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>org.seleniumhq.selenium</groupId>
<artifactId>selenium-java</artifactId>
<version>2.28.0</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
<groupId>com.opera</groupId>
<artifactId>operadriver</artifactId>
</dependency>
</dependencies>
<dependencyManagement>
<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>com.opera</groupId>
<artifactId>operadriver</artifactId>
<version>1.1</version>
<exclusions>
<exclusion>
<groupId>org.seleniumhq.selenium</groupId>
<artifactId>selenium-remote-driver</artifactId>
</exclusion>
</exclusions>
</dependency>
</dependencies>
</dependencyManagement>
</project>


Would you be so kind and show me how to adapt this
pom.xml
to apply for the Firefox browser, say
Firefox 17
?

Answer

With selenium-java dependency you get all java bindings for all browsers. So, you do not need to change anything in your pom from what you already have. The only thing that would change is your driver initialization code, which is driver = new FirefoxDriver() instead of OperaDriver.
