How can I call the drivers(browsers) in Selenium with java ?

It’s simple !

you have to call the import > import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver; and others about the browsers, like: import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver; (calls Firefox)

After this, in the class Main, declare driver:

WebDriver driver;

and Quit:

Quit quit = new Quit();

So… you have now choose what is the browser and calls the profile and set the configs, like proxy (for this reason you have to create a profile)

public class Main {

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

FirefoxProfile profile = new FirefoxProfile();   // create a profile of Firefox
profile.setPreference(“network.proxy.type”, 0);   // Don’t use proxy
driver = new FirefoxDriver(profile);       // calls the browser with the configs of the profile
driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);     // config the timeouts for load a page
driver.get(site);     // change site for the url that your driver will open.

quit.tearDown(driver);     // quit the driver.



You have to create the class that close the driver in class Main.

public class Main {

public static class Quit {

public void tearDown(WebDriver driver) {


and finish !

This is the first step for create a automation with selenium. Create a driver and open the browser !

Good studies for all, bye !
