Selenium UnreachableBrowserException - “Could not start a new session” in SoapUI Groovy TestStep

0

I use SoapUI Pro 5.1.2 on Win7 x32, and try to connect to Selenium Webdriver in Groovy TestStep.

For this purpose I added selenium-standalone-server.jar v2.45.0 in $SOAP_HOME$\bin\ext folder.

My Groovy TestStep code:

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver
System.setProperty('webdriver.chrome.driver', 'C:\\\\Windows\\system32\\chromedriver.exe')
log
.info(System.getProperty('webdriver.chrome.driver')) //got 'C:\\Windows\system32\chromedriver.exe'
WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver() // this line causes error
driver
.get('http://google.com')
driver
.quit()

When I try to run this step, SoapUI returns message:

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
: '2.45.0',

Driver info:

I tried to run this piece of code through the Netbeans IDE, after adding the same selenium-standalone-server.jar package to empty java project. And it has completed without problems!

This is error-log of soapUI:

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.

I also tried use FirefoxDriver() instead of ChromeDriver(), and got the same error.

I’m on the verge of despair, please help!

I have encountered the same error, which said:

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.

but chromedriver.exe started fine. I can see it in task manager.

My environment is as following,

  • windows 7, ultimate, 64 bit system
  • selenium-server-standalone-2.47.1
  • chromedriver 2.19
  • google chrome: 45.0

After many tries suggested in google results, my final solution is to add 127.0.0.1 localhost to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.

Hope to help you!
