Hudson will generate the trend report of test result.

# Configuring the Seleniumhq Plugin

## Global config

1. Configure Seleniumhq test runner (selenium-server.jar path) [via Manage Hudson -> Configure System]

## Job config

1. Install the selenium plugin [via Manage Hudson -> Manage Plugins]
2. Configure your project's build script to generate Seleniumhq HTML reports (See below for examples with Ant Command, batch Command and Hudson build step)
3. Enable the "Publish Selenium Report" publisher
4. Specify the test file to load

# Configuring build tools

Here are the configuration details for common build tools. Please feel free to update this with corrections or additions.

## Build Step in hudson

You can lauch the HTML Selenese suite with selenium-server with the buid step provide by this plugin.
This step make exactly the same as Batch command (See below) but the plugin offer ther possibily to enter an PATH or an URL for the suiteFile param.

1. Add a build step (SeleniumHQ htmlSuite Run) in your job configure page
2. Field the mandatory field

## Batch command

1. Add a build step (Execute Windows batch command) in your job configure page
2. Add command to lauch HTML Selenese suite with selenium-server
java -jar selenium-server.jar -htmlSuite "*firefox" http://www.google.com
"c:\absolute\path\to\my\HTMLSuite.html" "%WORKSPACE%\results.htm"

## Ant

We've also provided an Ant task to make it easier to launch the tests. Run it like this: Seleniumhq doc

<classpath>
<pathelement location="selenium-server.jar"/>
</classpath>
<selenese
suite="c:\absolute\path\to\my\HTMLSuite.html"
browser="*firefox"
results="c:\absolute\path\to\my\results.html"
multiWindow="true"
timeoutInSeconds="900"

Is it possible to use the environment variables to name the results files ? With this possibility, there will be no need to use the "Archive the artifacts" option.

What do you think of this idea ?

Hello!

First of all, I wish to thank you very much for a usefull plugin!

I have a following question. The plugins provides a possibility to specify a URL to the suiteFile (e.g. in my case http://localhost/testslib/html/Login.html). As I understand a local copy of the suite file is created and executed. Unfortunately, I never succeeded to run a test providing an URL to the suiteFile because the test files (linked from the suite file) seem not to be downloaded. All I see the following error in the test's iframe of the TestRunner:

## HTTP ERROR: 404

Help would be greatly appreciated.

First off, thank you. This is a very help piece of coding.

I have a usage question. We are doing something like this but not so nicely integrated into Hudson. We run the selenium tests with ant and then parse the html file into Junit style reports.

What I would like to do is to simply use what you have developed and run my TestSuite.html from the Hudson dashboard rather then the build script, it will make the process much more flexible and easy to use. What I don't understand is how to pass some extra parameters to the "SeleniumHQ htmlSuite Run" build step.

How would I do that? Here is a listing of the parameters:
haltonfailure="true"
multiWindow="true"
timeoutInSeconds="3000"
firefoxProfileTemplate="/firefox-https-profile"

1. Jun 03, 2009

in the "other" box of "SeleniumHQ htmlSuite Run" build step add:  -timeout...

in the "other" box of "SeleniumHQ htmlSuite Run" build step add:

-timeout 3000 -firefoxProfileTemplate "/firefox-https-profile"

This parameter are added in command line exexute by the build step, see job log for complete command execute by the build step
Ex: java -jar selenium-server.jar -timeout 15600 -firefoxProfileTemplate "/firefox-https-profile" -htmlSuite «browser» «startURL» «suiteFile» «resultFile»

multiWindow is default option when run with selenium-server-1.0-beta-2
I think of selenium-server-1.0-beta-2 have no parameter for haltonfailure!

Check if the command line stated by hudson (SeleniumHQ plugin ) is correct
1-In a batch window of Windows paste the command and run
2-Check the test start - execute and end normally
3-Check the result file

Y receive the same error SeleniumCommandTimedOutException when the selenium test not starded correctly by selenium-server.
Or the test need human action to make test continue.

Other cause, your testsuite is to long to execute
add extract param in other box of plugin like '-timeout 7200' for a timeout of 2 hours

The log you write say the SeleniumHq plugin run correctly but the selenium-server.jar not make the result file correctly because he reach a timeout.

Hi Pascal,

I did a stupid mistake that I had given Testcase file instead of Testsuite file in config page of Hudson job, so  it was not running.

Now all working fine.

In future if any body faces same problem I had, Please ask them to check whether it is Testsuite or Testcase in the config page of a Hudson job

Thanks for the support

Pascal: I use Seleniumhq Plugin only to publish the test results, not to run the tests. For this I use an Ant task. The reason is I want to to run the tests BOTH from the developer's platform and from the CI server.

I aknowledge the lack of a fileset attribute is a problem from selenium HQ, not the plugin so I should rather contribute to them. What do you think?

Did anybody experience resource conflicts - when multiple SeleniumHQ tasks attempt to use the same browser / Selenium server JAR?
My example: two builds complete closely in time, both start (different) SeleniumHQ smoketests using *iexplore, with a 90% probability neither of the test won't complete to success. After this:

==
nothing happens. A fantom iexplore.exe process is reported by the task manager; all further attempts to run SeleniumHQ steps with *iexplore also fail until this process is killed.

Workarounds:
1. Spread the SeleniumHQ runs in time. Ensure no overlapping.
2. Use the Build Timeout plugin to abort the stuck job. I'm not sure whether this will correctly kill the stuck browser process though.

 Selenium Grid does not officially support running multiple Internet Explorer on a single Windows machine. This is mostly because: People who know IE better than I do (Dan Fabulich) tell me that if you run 2 browsers as the same user in HTA mode they end up sharing a singleton instance in memory, which could cause problems. The *iexplore mode is changing the registry settings at each session start/end to have IE use a specific Remote Control as HTTP proxy. If you run multiple Remote Controls at the same time you can see the problems coming! Currently, the only robust solution for running multiple IE instances on a single machine with Selenium Grid is to use virtualization (multiple VMs, a single IE instance per VM).

Normaly each tests of the test suite need to be in http server you test (startUrl)

So I can run Selenium scripts, but I can't seem to import the results into Hudson, which doesn't make them very useful :(

Is there a way to work around this issue at all?

For example, /var/lib/hudson/jobs/ewsi/workspace/ewsi-svn/result.html is 39 min old Finished: FAILURE I noticed in the command a space after the selenum-server.jar in the output (I checked at global level in the selenium-server path and I don't have spaces after), with 0.2 version I didn't have problems. To bypass it I use the shell command directly and I don't have problems. 2) the Selenium Test Result Trend graph seems to take in consideration only builds succeded and then I don't see in the graph failure tests in red. In other words if I have failed build because of a failed test then the test graph doesn't take consideration that build number on the x axis so at the end I have only a blue graph.

===========================================================================

From log it can be seen that Hudson is trying to kill firefox instance but when we check process list on server, we see many processes still active as shown below:

==================================================

/usr/bin/Xvfb :1 -ac -screen 0 1024x768x24
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/firefox -profile /tmp/customProfileDir423441
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/firefox -profile /tmp/customProfileDir387548

==================================================

There are also directories like "/tmp/customProfileDir423441" which we need to clean-up manually after every build. We use Headless Linux 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5xen, Hudson 1.379, Firefox-3.6 and use following commands to initiate selenium testing

/usr/bin/Xvfb :1 -ac -screen 0 1024x768x24 2>&1 >/dev/null &

browser: *firefox

startURL: http://www.myproject.xyz

suiteFile: demo1/test/functional/selenium/frontend/TestSuite.html

resultFile: build/selenium/frontend.html

other: -ensureCleanSession -timeout 3600

Following is in error log, but I am not sure whether it is related to this issue or not. Let me know if you need more details.

Thank you very mucho for you tutorial.
I'm having this problem:

My htmlSuite Runner it's set like: C:\Hudson\jobs\Selenium\selenium-server.jar , where is actually my Selenium RC .jar file.

And i have configured a project to run a test with same configurations as i have on a batch file that works just fine with Selenium RC alone.

The thing is that when i ran the project, its runs fine (INFO: Test #8 main build action completed: SUCCESS in the console) but it doesn't do anything, its runs in less than 1 second when it should be at least 10, it's doesn't create anylog file either.

I think Hudson it's not using the Selenium RC server correctly but i don't know why.

any help will infinetly apreciated .

tnks!
