Are you getting an error when trying to run Selenium RC?

I am playing with selenium RC today to see how i can automate some web tests, especially one with ajax( for ex: Telerik Tooltips) and build them into unit tests to avoid some dumb manual tests. When i am trying to start Selenium server using the command prompt, i started getting “Address already in use: JVM_Bind” error. After digging , i found out that you can stop the server by typing this command in firefox( firefox is my default browser).

http://localhost:4444/selenium-server/driver/?cmd=shutDown” .

Hope this helps !!

Also if you are successful in using Selenium RC for automating webtests that has ajax, I would like to hear.

My ultimate goal is to record tests using selenium, import them as unit tests and integrate them with CI.

This way my team can be productive and spend there precious time in developing and do exploration tests. Wish me luck!!



  1. I am trying this stop feature, but doesn’t work for me … just never stopped … do you know any other way to stop it ?
