(Mahmoud Saleh) #1

i am trying to run selenium test on jetty with gradle, and my gradle configuration is as follows:

build.gradle:

apply plugin: 'java'
    apply plugin: 'eclipse-wtp'
    apply plugin: 'war'
    apply plugin: 'findbugs'

          sourceSets {
     selenium
    }

     classpath = sourceSets.selenium.runtimeClasspath
    }

Test class:

public class HomeTest {
            static WebDriver driver;
           @BeforeClass
     public static void before() {
      driver = new FirefoxDriver();
     }
           @AfterClass
     public static void after() {
      driver.close();
     }
            @Test
     public void testLoadHomePage() {
      driver.get("http://localhost:8080/MyApp/index.xhtml");
     }
          }

CASE:when trying to run selenium with command ‘gradle clean selenium’ the test method is accessed and the web page is loaded, but then i get the exception:
