Testing: Selenium: Building ZimbraSelenium

General Information

See Building Zimbra.
See Selenium Overview.

Downloading the Code

Downloading the Prerequisites

The zm-selenium project depends on the following Zimbra projects:

  1. zimbra-package-stub
  2. zm-zcs
  3. zm-mailbox
  4. zm-web-client
  5. zm-zimlets

Clone these prerequisites from github in /root/git directory as an example:

cd /root/git
git clone https://github.com/Zimbra/zimbra-package-stub.git
git clone https://github.com/Zimbra/zm-zcs.git
git clone https://github.com/Zimbra/zm-mailbox.git
git clone https://github.com/Zimbra/zm-web-client.git
git clone https://github.com/Zimbra/zm-zimlets.git

Downloading ZimbraSelenium

Download ZimbraSelenium:

 export P4PORT=codes.zimbra.com:2666
 mkdir -p /home/public/p4
 ./p4 -u public -P public1234 -c public-view sync -f //depot/zcs/BRANCH/ZimbraSelenium/...

where BRANCH is the release branch to download (e.g. main). All files will be downloaded to /home/public/p4.

Building ZimbraSelenium using Eclipse


ZimbraSelenium requires java 1.6. Download and install java.


Download and install eclipse IDE.

Build the Code

Use the following steps to build the code:

  1. Create new eclipse workspace
    1. Open eclipse
    2. Create new workspace in /home/public/p4/BRANCH , where BRANCH is the release branch.
  2. Add all projects to eclipse
    1. Select File->New->Project->Java Project
    2. For "Project Name", enter ZimbraSelenium
    3. Complete these same steps for all the dependency projects (i.e. ZimbraCommon, ZimbraServer, etc.)
  3. Build ZimbraSelenium
    1. Expand the ZimbraSelenium project
    2. Select build.xml, right click, select "Run As"->"Ant Build"

The output in the console should display:

     [copy] Copying 3 files to C:\home\public\p4\main\ZimbraServer\build\attrs-src
     [echo] Version: 6.0.2_BETA1_1111 Date: 20100721-1203
    [javac] Compiling 1 source file to C:\home\public\p4\main\ZimbraSelenium\build\classes
      [jar] Building jar: C:\home\public\p4\main\ZimbraSelenium\build\dist\zimbra-6.0.0\lib\zimbraselenium.jar
