Permission issue with Selenium in Sikuli

Asked by Sam on 2016-08-19

Hi, just wanted to start out with a huge thank you to the Sikuli team and RaiMan for developing such a powerful platform. I'm very new to Sikuli and python programming but I've managed to a do a lot of very useful test automation work recently with Sikuli. I'm now trying to automate my tasks further by integrating selenium into the IDE. I couldn't find a lot of answers about how to make this work, so I followed some ideas laid out in a fairly ancient post I found herehttps://answers.launchpad.net/sikuli/+question/248040.

I installed selenium with pip and then took the folders installed by pip in the python 2.7 path and copied that into a new "Lib" folder I made in my SikuliX folder. The IDE seems to import selenium but now I'm having trouble with getting webdriver off the ground.

Here's the exception in its ugly verbatim:

I'm running Sikuli 1.1.0 on a windows 7 machine with both python 2.7 and 3.5 installed.

Any advice on how to get webdriver up and running in my Sikuli project would be awesome.

Thanks.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #1

--- 1. Python itself is not relevant for SikuliX.
internally it uses Jython as Python language interpreter (Java based).

--- 2. Copying Python modules to the Sikuli environment
the solution you chose is principally ok, but depending on the Python environment you chose at pip time (2.7 or 3+), the installed modules might not work with SikuliX 1.1.0, which is at Python language level 2.5 and Jython 2.5 has many incompatibilities especially towards Python 2.7.

You should try with SikuliX 1.1.1 (http://sikulix.com), which contains Jython 2.7 and has some options especially for integrating compatible Python modules without the need to copy anything (http://sikulix-2014.readthedocs.io/en/latest/scenarios.html#access-python-packages-from-sikulix-scripts-run-by-sikulix-gui-or-commandline).

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #2

Thanks for the quick response. I went ahead and updated to 1.1.1. I saw and tried to install the selenium4sikuli.jar into Extensions, however when accessing extensions from tools in the IDE I get the message "none available." Then I followed the python packages link and attempted to put selenium into a site-packages folder within Lib. I couldn't find a folder SikuliRepo so I placed the selenium folder into the Lib folder right at the main C:\Users\Progman\AppData\Roaming\Sikulix path. This produced a very similar exception like I originally posted when parsing webdriver.

Am I missing something obvious?

I introduce my solution to use Selenium-webdriver from SikuliX-IDE.
The following is an example of using chrome as a browser.

[preparation:]
(1)Download Selenium Standalone Server(e.g. selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar)
   Place selenium-server-stand\alone-2.53.1.jar at C:\Selenium
(2)Download chromedriver(e.g. chromedriver.exe)
   Place chromedriver.exe at C:\Selenium

[script code:]
load("C:\Selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver as CD
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriverService as CS
import java.lang
java.lang.System.setProperty(
        CS.CHROME_DRIVER_EXE_PROPERTY,
        "C:\Selenium\chromedriver.exe")

driver = CD()
driver.get("http://www.sikuli.org/")
sleep(10)
driver.quit()

[environment:]
OS:Windows10
SikuliX:SikuliX1.1.1

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #4

Thanks Masuo, I'm using firefox on a win7 machine, could you please advise me on an equivalent approach for firefox? Firefox functionality is built into the Selenium server correct? What would the commands to implement the firefox webdriver be in the vein you mentioned for chrome? I have Selenium Server downloaded and referenced in my Sikuli project.

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #6

Definite progress! I put that code in at the browser phase of my script and it gets me into firefox very fast. At this point I seem to get two issues. The first is that the firefox instance it opens is totally vanilla. A major objective of the script in fact is to test a firefox plugin I have installed. How would I link the selenium instance of firefox to my full plug-in-extended version? The second issue is a straight ahead exception. 10 seconds after successfully loading the vanilla instance of firefox, seemingly as Sikuli begins to parse the rest of the not-selenium script, it throws this -

[error] JythonSupport: load: could not be found - even not in bundle nor in Lib nor in Extensions

Continuing my research, the first issue with selenium starting a vanilla firefox instance is about profile selection. There seems to be plenty of examples of how to change the firefox profile with selenium webdriver, but not with the standalone. Is there an easy approach to getting selenium webdriver properly imported? Why do think I'm getting "Not available yet" when I attempt to load the selenium4sikuli extension? Is selenium4sikuli webdriver? I'm finding it very hard to get good search results for these questions. Thanks.

masuo (masuo-ohara) said : #9

You can use FirefoxProfile Class to change firefox profile.
I think that the following codes is a outline to set profiles.
Because I do not know about arguments, I can not answer.

[codes:]
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxProfile as FirefoxProfile

profile = FirefoxProfile()
profile.setPreference(argument1, argument2)
driver = FD(profile)

--- about selenium4sikulix
Experimental: Play with Selenium
This is about a first step to better support the side-by-side usage of Selenium and SikuliX in scripts.
You might run a showcase with Selenium Firefox (take care you have the latest Firefox installed).

These are the steps (tested only on Mac and Windows):
- have a setup with a build version 2015-07-03+
- on a command line run java -jar setup....jar options extensions which will download and store the supporting jar
- in the IDE run a script containing only: runScript("git*selenium"), which will run a script from the net (https://github.com/RaiMan/SikuliX-2014/blob/master/TestScripts/selenium/selenium.py)

You might also download the selenium4sikulix jar from here: http://nightly.sikuli.de/selenium4sikulix.jar

Since information about usage are not yet in the docs, you have to look into the script, to get an idea.

The solution is based on the Selenium Java package and is currently prepared for Jython scripting. So there is no need to fiddle around with any Python packages, pip installs or Jython problems with the Python stuff.

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #11

Sorry to keep going back to the well like this, but I can't seem to get this off the ground. There is really very scant relevant search information.

Here are the facts as I very partially understand them.

1. Both methods advised by RaiMan and Masuo are utilizing selenium RC. This means effectively selenium4sikuli.jar is the same as selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar. Is this correct?

2. This mean Selenium 2 AKA Selenium Webdriver is still incompatible with Sikuli IDE?

This is important, because 90% of the search results I've been using to troubleshoot this are only relevant to Selenium 2.

Right now this is the code as it stands in the middle of my script:

load("C:\selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver as FD
import org.openqa.selenium.Dimension as Dm
profile = FirefoxProfile()
driver = FD(profile)
driver.get("http://www.google.com/")
size = Dm(500,500)
driver.manage().window().setSize(size)

This is opens firefox and then sits there on a generic private browsing page.
The command driver.get("http://www.google.com/") is seemingly ignored as well as the rest of sikuli code below it.

Clearly I am missing something extremely basic?

Pertaining to loading the profile, this is the java approach apparently http://learn-automation.com/default-firefox-profile-in-selenium/ it involves what appears to be a selenium functionality "ProfileIni" -

" import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.internal.ProfilesIni " etc

However, sikuli obviously doesn't respond to the pure java syntax. What would be the pythonic version of this approach?

masuo (masuo-ohara) said : #12

By my solution, I use selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar as API library.
selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar file contains selenium webdriver Class.

There is a dependency of version between selenium webdriver and firefox.
If it does not work, Probabry that is a problem of dependency of version between selenium webdriver and firefox.
I have run script on the following environment.

[environment]
OS: Windows7
SikuliX: 1.1.1
Firefox: 47.0.1
selenium: selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.ja

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #13

Here's my current test script verbatim. In your identical environment of Win7, Sikuli: 1.1.1, Firefox 47.0.1

load("C:\selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver as FD
import org.openqa.selenium.Dimension as Dm

driver = FD()
driver.get("http://www.sikuli.org/")

size = Dm(500,500)
driver.manage().window().setSize(size)

driver.quit()

driver.get (url) is unresponsive, firefox sits on default private browser page for 30 seconds then yields the following exception.

[error] JythonSupport: load: could not be found - even not in bundle nor in Lib nor in Extensions

Considering from this error, path string as argument of load() is not correct.
Where do you place selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar file?

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #15

I just corrected that with a more accurate path- load("C:\Users\Progman\Desktop\Selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar"),
that seems to have been the least of the issue though. Zero change in behavior, just a slightly different exception.

There's the same huge traceback block then this:

[error] script [ Selenium debug ] stopped with error in line 5
[error] Driver info ( driver.version: FirefoxDriver )

I did the revert to firefox 47.0.1 and am using selenium 2.53.1, what do think the version incompatibility could be referencing?

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #16

--- load("C:\Users\Progman\Desktop\Selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
... pythonically is simply wrong
... you either have to use double \
... or specify the path as raw string r"..."

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #17

Ok, double backslash it is. Be that as it may, no change in behavior. The issue seems to be with the driver, seemingly a version issue.

[error] Driver info ( driver.version: FirefoxDriver )

However, compatibility has been accounted for with the recommendations by Masuo and yourself. Are there any further tests you recommend?

masuo (masuo-ohara) said : #18

At the time of #13, path string as argument of load() is not correct?
Despite incorrect path string, error did not occurred in line 2 (import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver).

If so, FirefoxDriver Class have not been imported from selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar.
I think that FirefoxDriver Class was imported from somewhere another file.

Probably FirefoxDriver Class is still imported from somewhere another file At the time of #15.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #19

@masuo
yep, that's the consequence.

@Sam: you should carefully check your environment and maybe strip it down to nothing and then start again step by step adding things nedded.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #20

Before the
driver = FD()

you should place
for e in sys.path(): print e

to see what you have on sys.path

and you might use (only with SikuliX 1.1.1)
RUNTIME.dumpClassPath()

to see the content of the Java classpath.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #21

... and the load() command adds the jar to the END of the Java classpath, so the fact, that a correct path spec with load does not change anything, proofs, that something is on the Java classpath already, that causes the problems, because it is found before the stuff added by load()

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #22

So thank you guys for all the answers up to this point. I was away for several days and didn't get a chance to respond here. RaiMan you were absolutely right about it being crossed installs. It was actually the selenium4sikuli.jar itself that was conflicting with the load. I figured this out as I was deleting everything with the name selenium, selenium4sikuli gave me "open in application" error and wouldn't let me delete it. After deleting it, driver.get does what's supposed to. However, at this point how do I integrate webdriver functionality (find element by class, name, xpath etc)? When I tried to call driver.find_element_by_class_name today I get this

[error] AttributeError ( 'org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver' object has no attribute 'find_element_by_class_name' )

How do I proceed to be able to actually use the core functionality? This version of the selenium standalone 2.53.1 doesn't seem to give it to me after all, or is it called a different way?

masuo (masuo-ohara) said : #23

When you use selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar as API library, use java API instead of Python API.

[codes:]
load("C:\Selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver as FD
import org.openqa.selenium.By as By

driver = FD()
driver.get("http://sikulix-2014.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html")
driver.findElement(By.name("q")).sendKeys("12345")
sleep(20)
driver.quit()

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #24

Frankly, I don't really grasp what that means in this context Masuo, but your code works, so thank you.

What exactly is org.openqa.selenium.By ?

 I will try to implement my test tomorrow and see if I stumble further or am free and clear.

Thanks again.

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #26

I'm starting to feel more comfortable with selenium thanks to to all the links you've supplied me. The package system was a bit unintuitive at first and didn't match really any of the learning material I was finding elsewhere on the internet.

I seem to have one more odd exception I'm facing between me and full functionality.

Here my current test script.

load("C:\\Users\\Progman\\Desktop\\Selenium\\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver as FD
import org.openqa.selenium.By as By
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxProfile as FirefoxProfile
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.internal
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.ClickAction

profile = FD.FirefoxProfile('C:\\Users\\Progman\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles\\nWv4HBss.default')
profile.native_events_enabled = True
driver = FD(profile)
driver.get("http://www.google.com/")

My aim right now is to load my default firefox profile. When I call its path, this is the super obscure error I get -

[error] TypeError ( org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxProfile(): 1st arg can't be coerced to java.io.File )

My searches have yielded no intelligible results on this error. Any ideas?

masuo (masuo-ohara) said : #27

Search net about selenium profile by using keywords.
e.g. "usage to get selenium profile"

Then learn relation between Class and Method .
http://seleniumhq.github.io/selenium/docs/api/java/index.html

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #28

Masuo, I search my errors extensively before posting here. I have not found a method for resolving this exception using python commands for the webdriver-backed selenium-standalone implementation we've been discussing. If the exception is the result of a retarded mistake on my part, please give me a bit of context on how to understand it. Sikuli obviously has issues interacting with the pure Selenium Webdriver, which is why you put me on the path of loading the older standalone jar. But you and RaiMan have made me have to infer this conclusion without providing context. The resources for understanding webdriver-backed selenium standalone are sparse. Pure selenium 2 webdriver for python installed by pip, is the common variation and the vast majority of search results are only relevant to that. I have no familiarity with Java, and the mixing of APIs in this discussion is truly confusing. I have developed tests in Sikuli for months now without a hitch using my limited python knowledge. If you would, please give me a moment and walk me through the 101 of what I'm doing wrong here.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #29

IMHO: in this snippet there is some naming inconsistency:

load("C:\\Users\\Progman\\Desktop\\Selenium\\selenium-server-standalone-2.53.1.jar")
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver as FD
import org.openqa.selenium.By as By
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxProfile as FirefoxProfile # this is the profile class name: FirefoxProfile
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.internal
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.ClickAction

# so this is wrong IMHO
#profile = FD.FirefoxProfile('C:\\Users\\Progman\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles\\nWv4HBss.default')
# and must be
profile = FirefoxProfile('C:\\Users\\Progman\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles\\nWv4HBss.default')

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #30

That was just one phrasing of the five I've tried. This yields the identical response.

profile = FirefoxProfile('C:\\Users\\Progman\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles\\nWv4HBss.')

[error] TypeError ( org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxProfile(): 1st arg can't be coerced to java.io.File )

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #31

... ok, then you can try:

# add
import java.io.File as JFile

# and then use
profile = FirefoxProfile(JFile('C:\\Users\\Progman\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles\\nWv4HBss.'))

masuo (masuo-ohara) said : #32

@Sam
at #30 comment
Did you do typo for Directory path name?
".default" is missing?

Sam (pancheafilm) said : #33

The typo was a copy/paste artifact. RaiMan's JFile suggestion worked great. The whole Jython mixed API system is something I'm slowly getting my head around. Hopefully that's the end of my setup issues. Thanks again guys.

Maria Haris (mariaharis) said : #34

I am trying to read the element by the xpath I get the attribute error although I was able to find the elements by id.

element = driver.findElement(By.XPATH,'//*[@id="view"]/a')

I am not able to click the page objects

Can you help with this problem?
