Selenium RC Architecture
The Selenium RC server handles the different browsers. It is capable of launching and killing the browser instances. The server acts like proxy between the browser and the application.
We have to start the RC server before running the scripts. Java is a prerequisite and should be installed on the machine to run RC server.
Download the RC server. Open command prompt and run the server The sample command to start the RC Server is shown below:
\> java -jar <selenium-rc-server.jar>
For example, we have to Instantiate the RC server in the Test automation script:
Selenium selenium = new DefaultSelenium( “localhost” , 4444, “*firefox” , “http://www.testingdocs.com/” );
Selenium RC had library support for many programing languages like
- Ruby etc.
