Selenium-grid allows you to run your tests on different machines and configurations. Plus it gives the option to run your tests in parallel. For more information, check out their website. Or check out my blogpost.


Do this before we start:

  • Download and install Java
  • Download and prepare the needed webdrivers
  • Make sure Java and the webdrivers are in the PATH variable
  • Download the Selenium Standalone Server


Start a simple hub

java -jar <filedir\filename>.jar -role hub Allow the firewall setting if/when this pop’s up.

Start a simple node

java -jar <filedir\filename>.jar -role node This will just register the node to the hub with some default settings.

Config files

More detailed info will follow later, for now the blogpost is as much as I’ve worked out.
