If problems are encountered, try on investigate why they occur. Possible problems can be divided into two categories:. If a keyword provided by the library itself has changed, take a look at to see is it a known backwards incompatible change.
If it isn't, you may have encountered a regression that ought to be reported to. If a library using Selenium2Library does not work anymore, it is likely due to the large internal changes in SeleniumLibrary 3.0. Report the problem to the maintainers of the broken library or fix the problem yourself if you are the maintainer. Regardless the problem, you can always ask help on various.
If no problems occur or after problems have been resolved, you can start changing library imports to use SeleniumLibrary instead of Selenium2Library.

Robot Framework Selenium For Mac
I recently installed Python 2.7, Robot Framework and the Selenium Library (I still don't know if I succeeded though.) on a Red Hat Server to run some test on a web application. So I tried a simple test case using Robot Framework to see if Selenium Library is functional, just to Open a web page, nothing more. Selenium Server is up and running according to the result of ps, and Firefox binaries are in the PATH. Running the test case from the Robot Framework (with the pybot testcasename.tsv) I get an exception: ERROR: Problem capturing a screenshot to string: java.awt.AWTException: headless environment So, what is the headless environment? Does anyone have an idea if there is something else that needs to be installed or to be configured as well? Using the X Virtual Frame Buffer (Xvfb): We can use xvfb to create a headless environment for selenium (for example, to run over SSH). Instructions:.
Start xvfb with the following options: $ Xvfb:89 -ac -noreset (where:89 is the virtual 'display' created). Then, set the DISPLAY variable to be this virtual display: $ export DISPLAY=:89. At this point, we can run the selenium server as desired. Examples follow. Run the server Java archive: $ java -jar selenium-server.jar In Python: from selenium import webdriver driver = webdriver.Firefox.
