Screenshot website using selenium and phantomjs error

Recommended Posts

greerso    0

I'm using the java project "selenium" with "ghostdriver" and phantomjs as my browser to create screenshots of web pages.  My code works perfectly in groovyConsole but has an error with the phantomjs driver once inside Scriptmaster.

 

I think the problem may be that it requires access to a binary phantomjs that is not part of the jars.

 

This is the code that executes in groovyConsole and produces a screenshot:

import java.io.File
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit
import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils
import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType
import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver
import org.openqa.selenium.phantomjs.PhantomJSDriver

System.setProperty("webdriver.phantomjs.driver", "/jars/phantomjsdriver-1.0.4.jar")
System.setProperty("phantomjs.binary.path", "/jars/phantomjs")

WebDriver driver = new PhantomJSDriver();
driver.manage().window().maximize()
driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
driver.get("http://www.google.com")
File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE)
FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File("google.png"), true)
driver.close()

The error I get from Scriptmaster is:

 

 

org.openqa.selenium.remote.UnreachableBrowserException: Could not start a new session. Possible causes are invalid address of the remote server or browser start-up failure.

Build info: version: '2.34.0', revision: '11cd0ef', time: '2013-08-06 17:10:22'

System info: os.name: 'Mac OS X', os.arch: 'i386', os.version: '10.10', java.version: '1.6.0_65'

Driver info: driver.version: PhantomJSDriver

 

Parameters:

{}

 

---Script---

Script:

import java.io.File

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit

import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils

import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType

import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver

import org.openqa.selenium.phantomjs.PhantomJSDriver

 

System.setProperty("webdriver.phantomjs.driver", "/jars/phantomjsdriver-1.0.4.jar")

System.setProperty("phantomjs.binary.path", "/jars/phantomjs")

 

WebDriver driver = new PhantomJSDriver();

driver.manage().window().maximize()

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS)

driver.get("http://www.google.com")

File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE)

FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File("google.png"), true)

driver.close()

 

Its also worth noting that in groovyConsole, the code still works without the two setProperty lines.

 

If I simplify the code the code to just:

import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType
import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver
import org.openqa.selenium.phantomjs.PhantomJSDriver

System.setProperty("webdriver.phantomjs.driver", "/jars/phantomjsdriver-1.0.4.jar")
System.setProperty("phantomjs.binary.path", "/jars/phantomjs")

WebDriver driver = new PhantomJSDriver()
driver.get("http://www.google.com")
driver.close()

I get the same error in Scriptmaster and no error in groovyConsole.

I'm curious why you're using Selenium here? If you use the PhantomJS sample script Rasterize.js then you can call PhantomJS from the shell and it will work nicely.

 

I've just tested with the shell script example in ScriptMaster and it works correctly. At least on OS X - don't see why there'd be a problem on windows though.

Rasterize.js from the shell is how I am and have been running it.  I was looking for a way to make it more self contained and possibly more powerful and flexible.  Do you think that its not possible to use Selenium in a Scriptmaster function?  Do you know why the script would run in GroovyConsole and not in Scriptmaster, I would like to try to understand why it doesn't work?

I've not tried Selenium with a ScriptMaster function so I don't have enough experience to form an opinion. By coincidence I was doing a fair bit with PhantomJS last week, though with PHP not FileMaker.

      ScriptMaster 5.01 is not working as usual.
      Just downloaded and updated and my solutions started to report errors on many dialog boxes.

      I have several customers that are still running Wondows Version 9, which is a version out of date. On attempting to load a 64 bit, ScriptMaster generated Plug-In, I am seeing a dialog that ScriptMaster can't run without Java 64 bit. On installing Java, there is no change and the same issue persists. This goes as far as literally crashing FileMaker. 
      Has anyone experienced this? Although it's really a Java issue, and the OS is out of date, I have two important customers running Windows 9.

      I am working on a project which requires me to make SOAP calls from FileMaker.
      I have successfully done that in the past thanks to ScriptMaster ability to handle that. It works beautifully.
      The new project now requires me to include a client certificate - issues by the SOAP API provider - in each requests. The documentation on their side is fairly scarce ("Install the certificate on your host" !).
      I have no idea how to handle that but something tells me that there is no reason why it would not be possible to "include" the certificate in the Groovy bit of the plugin...
      Any idea anyone ?
      Thanks

      Is it possible to get access to the fmpro object inside an inner class in code???
      Example
       
      //at head of groovy code class myClass extends HelperClass { def xx = fmpro.evaluate('Get(PersistentID)') def ... def ... }  
      Currently fails with groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: fmpro for class: myClass

      I'm at a loss as to why I'm getting "ERROR" when:
      I have an image (JPG) 3648 x 5472 pixels at this location:
      $crop_location = /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Wolf Spring/Wolf Spring Lightroom/Originals/Anderson_Austin_RB6649233682XA-O9330018750AV-crop.JPG
      The file location is definitely correct.
      This function:
      CropImage( $crop_location ; 0 ; 300 ; 3648 ; 5172 )
      Should simply crop 300 pixels off the top, right?
      I get "ERROR"
      Any ideas?
