Method Detail


public abstract com.thoughtworks.selenium.Selenium createSelenium(SeleniumFactory factory,
                                                                  String browserURL)
Instantiates the driver.

This method is invoked in response to SeleniumFactory.createSelenium() to actually instantiate the driver.

factory - The factory that captures the configuration that the calling user application is looking for. Never null.
browserURL - See the parameter of the same name in DefaultSelenium.DefaultSelenium(String, int, String, String). This specifies the domain name in the format of "" where the test occurs.
null if the implementation didn't recognize the URI specified in the factory. returning null causes SeleniumFactory to try other SPIs found in the system.
IllegalArgumentException - If the URI was recognized by the SPI but some of its configurations were wrong, or if the SPI failed to instantiate the Selenium driver, throw an exception. SeleniumFactory will not try other SPIs and propagate the problem to the calling user application.
