I am trying to scrape data from a site I did code for. I want to scrape data on button click event but when I run my program it throws an exception

Exception is: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/google/common/base/Function

How can I remove this exception and work my program

Here is my code which I tried

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.Select;

public class GetData {

    public static void main(String args[]) throws InterruptedException {
        WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
        // select barge
        new Select(driver.findElement(By.id("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddl_commodity"))).selectByVisibleText("Jo");
        // click button

        //get only table tex
        WebElement findElement = driver.findElement(By.className("grid-view"));
        String htmlTableText = findElement.getText();
        // do whatever you want now, This is raw table values.

Can you tell us what jar files have you included? –  t3hn00b Apr 2 '14 at 11:34

I believe this will help. Same question basically and this seems to be pretty common.


I think that is what t3hnoob was getting after as well.
