How to set up chrome webdriver in selenium java

Below are the steps:
  1. Download and install the Java Development Kit (JDK) from the Oracle website. You need the JDK to be able to compile and run Java programs.

  2. Download the Selenium Java client library from the Selenium website. This library contains the classes and methods that you will use to control the browser with Selenium.

  3. Add the Selenium Java library to your project's classpath. In Eclipse, you can do this by right-clicking on your project, selecting "Build Path" and then "Add External Archives".

  4. Download the ChromeDriver executable from the ChromeDriver website. Make sure to download the version that is compatible with your version of Chrome.

  5. Add the ChromeDriver executable to your system's PATH. This will allow you to use the ChromeDriver executable from any location on your system.

  6. Import the necessary Selenium classes in your Java code. For example, to create a ChromeDriver instance, you would import the following classes:

           import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

  1. Create an instance of the ChromeDriver class. For example:

           WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

That's it! You're now ready to use Selenium WebDriver in your Java code to control the Chrome browser.

Here is a simple example that demonstrates how to use Selenium to open a web page, navigate to a link, and print the page title:

           import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

           public class SeleniumExample {
           public static void main(String[] args) {
           // Create a new instance of the Chrome driver
           WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

           // Navigate to the Google homepage

           // Find the search box element and enter a search query

           // Find the search button and click it

           // Wait for the search results to load
           WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10);

          // Print the page title

          // Close the browser
