    Configure HtmlUnitDriver

    Yan Langlois Newbie



      I am using arquillian (version 1.1.5.Final) with graphene-webdriver (version 2.0.3.Final) and selenium-htmlunit-driver (version 2.42.0) to test a Richfaces (version 4.3.7.Final) application.


      When the page is loading, I get this error :

      EcmaError: lineNumber=[6831] column=[0] lineSource=[<no source>] name=[TypeError] sourceName=[https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/myApplication/javax.faces.resource/jquery.js.jsf] message=[TypeError: Impossible de trouver la fonction getPropertyValue dans lobjet {1}. (https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/myApplication/javax.faces.resource/jquery.js.jsf#6831)]

      com.gargoylesoftware.htmlunit.ScriptException: TypeError: Impossible de trouver la fonction getPropertyValue dans lobjet {1}. (https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/myApplication/javax.faces.resource/jquery.js.jsf#6831)


      When I use directly HTMLUnit, I need to add this line to avoid the same error :

      final WebClient webClient = new WebClient(BrowserVersion.CHROME);


      Is it possible to configure HTMLUnitWebDriver from drone extension to set the property ThrowExceptionOnScriptError to false ?

      Thank you for your help.

          Hello Yan,


          this is currently not possible, as Selenium does not allow access to WebClientOptions without subclassing HtmlUnitDriver. I've filled [ARQ-1836] Support HtmlUnitDriver client options - JBoss Issue Tracker with more details, Drone could in theory bridge the gap.


          Have you though of using phantomjs instead if you need to test headless?

            Thank you for your JIRA issue, I think it will be very usefull.


            For your information, I cannot use PhantomJS because I work on a project where the login page is redirected via a HTTP 302 redirect. PhantomsJS does not seem to follow this kind of redirection. Nevertheless, I found a workarround with this property of HTMLUnitDriver :



            It seems that firefox browser version within HTMLUnit copes better with JavaScript.


            With RichFaces, I also needed to change the default CSS parser. RF depend on net.sourceforge.cssparser:cssparser:0.9.5. I use version 0.9.14. My pom looks like that :
