How to control Chromedriver using curl

How to control Chromedriver using curl

Here is how to use Chromedriver without libraries like selenium-webdriver. This can be useful for debugging.
The following example visits a web page and reads the a headline's text contents.

1. download chromedriver.exe on windows/mac, go to the same directory and run this command:

On Mac: ./chromedriver &
On Windows: chromedriver.exe

2. Create a session:
Java Code:
WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

Curl Command:
curl -XPOST http://localhost:9515/session -d '{"desiredCapabilities":{"browserName":"chrome"}}'

3. launch a URL:
Java Code:

Curl Command:
curl http://localhost:9515/session/142a7f9bb57b8fda48636c8709df9591/url -d '{"url":""}'

4. find an element:
Java Code:
WebElement element = driver.findElement("q"));

Curl Command:
curl http://localhost:9515/session/142a7f9bb57b8fda48636c8709df9591/element -d '{"using":"name", "value":"q"}'

5. enter text in element:
Java Code:
element.sendKeys("Naveen AutomationLabs");

Curl Command:
curl http://localhost:9515/session/142a7f9bb57b8fda48636c8709df9591/element/0.45843488917986774-1/value -d '{"value":["Naveen Automation Labs"]}'

6. Quit Browser/close the session:
Java Code:

Curl Command:
curl -X DELETE http://localhost:9515/session/142a7f9bb57b8fda48636c8709df9591

Chromedriver follows the W3C WebDriver spec. There are tons of things you can do with it, but tasks that are simple using something like selenium-webdriver can be quite difficult.
However, for simple debugging or remote-controlling, consider just using curl.

Usage of Cucumber Options which we use in TestRunner File

Usage of Cucumber Options which we use in TestRunner File

TestRunner File is used to build a Communication between Feature Files and StepDefinition Files. 

features: We use Cucumber features option to define path of feature file(s). 

glue: We use Cucumber glue option to define path of step definition file(s). 

format: We use Cucumber format option to generate output or test results in different types of formats. 
Eg: HTML Report, JUnit or TestNG Report, Cucumber Report and So. 

monochrome: We use Cucumber monochrome option to print console output in a very readable format. 
monochrome must be set to true in order to achieve it. 

strict: We use Cucumber strict option to check if any step if not defined in step definition file. 
If any step is not defined in step definition file then it will stop an execution of program. 

dryRun: We use Cucumber dryRun option to check whether all the steps from feature files has got methods and implemented or no in Step Definition File. 
Before execution of program dryRun must be set to true and we need to make sure that all steps are implemented in Step Definition File. 
Once we are sure that all steps are implemented then dryRun must be set to False and we should continue with Test Execution.

tags: We use Cucumber tags option when we have more number of scenarios in a single feature file which represents different purpose [Smoke, Sanity, Regression etc] in such cases we can make use tags option.
Eg: tags={ " @ Smoke " } >> It will pick only and only those scenarios which are tagged with Smoke in feature files.
