    Does your path point to the correct location for the Selenium classes?

I was also facing the same issue. I've added guava JRE.jar in project

You can refer here https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/com.google.guava/guava/23.6-jre to add maven dependency


Download guava_jre.jar file from http://central.maven.org/maven2/com/google/guava/guava/23.6-jre/ and add it in your project


As I can see from the error stacktrace it is caused by the com.google.common.base.Function it means either the jar file is missing or it is not loaded properly. You can try the following.

1. If you are using maven for dependency management I would suggest. Go to the following path C:\users\your_user_id\.m2\repository locate your jar file for which you are getting the error(in your case com/google/commons) delete that folder and rebuild the project and update the maven.

2. If you have added Jar files directly by using configure build path options and remove the dependency and add it again.


You are trying to create a WebDriver instance with ChromeDriver constructor. This is not correct. Change WebDriver in your code to ChromeDriver.

    This is incorrect. ChromeDriver implements WebDriver, so creating a WebDriver instance with new ChromeDriver() is perfectly valid. (It is odd that the class name is Firefoxbrowser, though…)
