Usage: java -jar selenium-server.jar [-interactive] [option
- -port <nnnn>: the port number the selenium server should use (default 4444)
- -timeout <nnnn>: an integer number of seconds before we should give up
- -interactive: puts you into interactive mode. See the tutorial for more details
- -multiWindow: puts you into a mode where the test web site executes in a separate window, and selenium supports frames
- -forcedBrowserMode <browser>: sets the browser mode (e.g. "*iexplore" for all sessions, no matter what is passed to getNewBrowserSession
- -browserSessionReuse: stops re-initialization and spawning of the browser between tests
- -avoidProxy: By default, we proxy every browser request; set this flag to make the browser use our proxy only for URLs containing '/selenium-server'
- -firefoxProfileTemplate <dir>: normally, we generate a fresh empty Firefox profile every time we launch. You can specify a directory to make us copy your profile directory instead.
- -debug: puts you into debug mode, with more trace information and diagnostics
- -log: writes lots of debug information out to a log file
- -htmlSuite <browser> <startURL> <suiteFile> <resultFile>: Run a single HTML Selenese (Selenium Core) suite and then exit immediately, using the specified browser (e.g. "*firefox") on the specified URL (e.g. "http://www.google.com"). You need to specify the absolute path to the HTML test suite as well as the path to the HTML results file we'll generate.
- -proxyInjectionMode: puts you into proxy injection mode, a mode where the selenium server acts as a proxy server for all content going to the test application. Under this mode, multiple domains can be visited, and the following additional flags are supported:
- -dontInjectRegex <regex>: an optional regular expression that proxy injection mode can use to know when to bypss injection
- -userContentTransformation <regex> <replacement>: a regular expression which is matched against all test HTML content; the second is a string which will replace matches. These flags can be used any number of times. A simple example of how this could be useful: if you add "-userContentTransformation https http" then all "https" strings in the HTML of the test application will be changed to be "http".
Two Java system properties are also suported:
-Dhttp.proxyPort. Selenium RC normally overrides your proxy server configuration, using the Selenium Server as a proxy. Use these options if you need to use your own proxy together with the Selenium Server proxy. Use the proxy settings like like this:
java -Dhttp.proxyHost=myproxy.com -Dhttp.proxyPort=1234 -jar selenium-server.jar
If your HTTP proxy requires authentication, you will also need to set
-Dhttp.proxyPassword, in addition to http.proxyHost and http.proxyPort.
java -Dhttp.proxyHost=myproxy.com -Dhttp.proxyPort=1234 -Dhttp.proxyUser=joe -Dhttp.proxyPassword=example -jar selenium-server.jar
