My Selenium RC code is launching the browser but it is taking me to C:\Users\Kanishka\AppData\Local\Temp\customProfileDir3e16427300054effa807e843dd1a332f\core\Blank.html instead of the intended URL.

The code I have written is very simple and I am using all default Selenium settings.

import grails.plugins.selenium.*
import org.junit.*
import static org.junit.Assert.*
import static org.hamcrest.Matchers.*

class NewTests extends GroovyTestCase 
    void testHomepageLoads() 
        assertTrue selenium.isTextPresent("Welcome to Grails")

    Which version of Selenium are you using? Are you trying to launch IE?

  • user1728, welcome to SQA. It may be easier to help you if you can update your question with the version of Selenium you are using. My guess is that this problem is environmental and does not have anything to do with Grails.

  • You should really look into upgrading to WebDriver - its more stable. docs.seleniumhq.org/download Commented Mar 14, 2014 at 23:48
