( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Ty Limbic~Region for the post. I wasn't aware I needed to run the Selenium core. I did try running $netstat -an | grep LISTEN | grep 4444 and it didn't do anything so I figured I really didn't have the Selenium core.

I tried running the $java --jar selenium-core.jar suggestion from my terminal but I got the following error:

Unrecognized option: --jar Could not create the Java virtual machine.
I guessed you meant "-jar" rather than "--jar" so I retyped the command at the terminal but I got the following:

The program 'java' can be found in the following packages: * gij-4.3 * java-gcj-compat-headless * openjdk-6-jre-headless * cacao * gij-4.2 * jamvm * kaffe Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package> bash: java: command not found

So I tired "sudo apt-get selenium-core" hoping this would work but it didn't. So the next thing I did was try searching the Synaptic Package Manager with no luck. I then googled and found http://release.seleniumhq.org/selenium-core/1.0.1/selenium-core-1.0.1.zip. I downloaded it and extracted but I couldn't make heads or tails of what to do next after reading the 'install-readme.txt.'

Any advice on how I actually install Selenium core on Ubuntu? All my other searches for information on this didn't result in anything I could use.

Also assuming that I get Selenium core running, is there any code I need to know about to "start" the Selenium core? I can't remember where I read it, but I read that you need the following code in your perl program:

$sel->start();

If so, where do I put it? I put it in my program here:

my $sel = Test::WWW::Selenium->new( host => "localhost", port => 4444, browser => "*chrome", browser_url => "http://www.example +.com/" ); $sel->start(); $sel->open("/home/index.jsp");

Did I get this code position correct?

Many thanks for the help!
