To create my first test in Selenium, I was using this web site.

Download and install Eclipse, download Chrome driver, download and install Maven.

To install Maven, in my case, I downloaded apache-maven-3.2.2-bin.zip, and I extracted it to C:\opt\maven. After that on the keyboard click Windows sign + Pause, system properties should open, and click Advanced Settings. On Windows 7 it looks like this:

System properties window should pop - up, click on Advanced -> Environment Variables:

Environment Variables should pop - up. First I had to add M2_HOME variable with the value C:\opt\maven into system variables, because with user variables didn't work, I don't know why:

Then in user variables click new:

Add the M2 environment variable in the user variables with the value %M2_HOME%\bin

Add / update path variable, by adding %M2%:

 Make sure that Java_Home exists:

After adding all those variables, I had to restart my computer, then to check if everything is correctly set in command line write 

echo %M2_HOME%

result should be (in my case):

C:\opt\maven

Now we can check if Maven is installed by writing in command line:

mvn --version

Result should be something like: 

Apache Maven 3.2.2 (45f7c06d68e745d05611f7fd14efb6594181933e; 2014-06-17T15:51:42+02:00)
Maven home: C:\opt\maven
Java version: 1.7.0_45, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_45\jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1250
OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"

To start with Maven, create folder for example d:\com.milosev.app, open command line in that folder, execute:

mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=com.milosev.app -DartifactId=my-firstTest -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-quickstart -DinteractiveMode=false

Now your folder structure should look like:

Open Eclipse, go to Help -> Install New Software:

 

Then, in my case, I've choose Work with: Luna - http://download.eclipse.org/releases/Luna, filtered by maven, and check Collaboration m2e...:

Click Next -> Next -> Accept license agreement -> Finish, wait to install software, restart Eclipse.

Go to File -> Import

Then choose Existing Maven Projects

Click Browse go to folder where is your project (in my case that is d:\com.milosev.app), click ok -> Finish.

Open pom.xml, since I am unexpirienced Eclipse user I open it with Text Editor:

It should look like:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
	<modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
	<groupId>com.mycompany.app</groupId>
	<artifactId>my-app</artifactId>
	<packaging>jar</packaging>
	<version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
	<name>my-app</name>
	<url>http://maven.apache.org</url>
	<dependencies>
	
		<dependency>
			<groupId>junit</groupId>
			<artifactId>junit</artifactId>
			<version>3.8.1</version>
			<scope>test</scope>
		</dependency>
		
		<dependency>
			<groupId>org.seleniumhq.selenium</groupId>
			<artifactId>selenium-java</artifactId>
			<version>2.40.0</version>
		</dependency>
		
	</dependencies>
</project>

Basically you will need to add just:

<dependency>
	<groupId>org.seleniumhq.selenium</groupId>
	<artifactId>selenium-java</artifactId>
	<version>2.40.0</version>
</dependency>

After saving, Maven Dependencies should be populated, in my case it looks something like:

Now, open my-firstTest -> src/test/java -> com.milosev.app -> AppTest.java, right click on com.milosev.app -> New -> Class

Give the name like openChrome

Open your new file, in my case openChrome.java, and write something like:

package com.milosev.app;

import junit.framework.TestCase;

import org.junit.Test;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class openChrome
	extends TestCase
{
	WebDriver driver;
	
	@Test
	public void testDevice_183_102_1152921504606846975() throws InterruptedException {
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Users\\myUserName\\Downloads\\chromedriver_win32\\chromedriver.exe");
		driver = new ChromeDriver();
		
		driver.get("http://www.google.com");
		assertTrue(true);		
	}	
}

Part C:\\Users\\myUserName\\Downloads\\chromedriver_win32\\chromedriver.exe change with path where you downloaded your chromedriver.

After adding the code, there is possibility that @Test will be underlined with red color, which means that it is not recognized. In that case go with mouse over @Test, wait for drop down window, and click on "Add JUnit 4 library to the building path":

Click F11, and magic should happen.

Example project you can download from here, but be aware that this is my very first project made in Selenium / Java.

To start simple Jetty server with Maven, download and install Maven, after that create and import project (in my case I created project in C:\Users\myUserName\Documents\myJetty\my-firstJettyTest) as I already explained here. Open pom.xml, and it should look like: 

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
  <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
  <groupId>myJetty</groupId>
  <artifactId>my-firstJettyTest</artifactId>
  <packaging>jar</packaging>
  <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  <name>my-firstJettyTest</name>
  <url>http://maven.apache.org</url>
  <dependencies>
  
    <dependency>
      <groupId>junit</groupId>
      <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
      <version>3.8.1</version>
      <scope>test</scope>
    </dependency>
    
	<dependency>
		<groupId>org.eclipse.jetty</groupId>
		<artifactId>jetty-websocket</artifactId>
		<version>8.1.12.v20130726</version>
	</dependency>
	
	<dependency>
		<groupId>org.eclipse.jetty</groupId>
		<artifactId>jetty-server</artifactId>
		<version>8.1.12.v20130726</version>
	</dependency>
    
  </dependencies>
  
	<build>
		<plugins>
		
			<plugin>
				<groupId>org.mortbay.jetty</groupId>
				<artifactId>jetty-maven-plugin</artifactId>
				<version>8.1.11.v20130520</version>
				<configuration>
					<scanIntervalSeconds>10</scanIntervalSeconds>
					<stopPort>8005</stopPort>
					<stopKey>STOP</stopKey>
					<contextPath>/</contextPath>
				</configuration>
				<executions>
					<execution>
						<id>start-jetty</id>
						<phase>pre-integration-test</phase>
						<goals>
							<goal>run</goal>
						</goals>
						<configuration>
							<scanIntervalSeconds>0</scanIntervalSeconds>
							<daemon>true</daemon>
						</configuration>
					</execution>
					<execution>
						<id>stop-jetty</id>
						<phase>post-integration-test</phase>
						<goals>
							<goal>stop</goal>
						</goals>
					</execution>
				</executions>
			</plugin>

		
		</plugins>
	</build>
		
</project>

Then open command line in same folder where your project is, and you can execute:

mvn jetty:run

After that in your browser write something like: 127.0.0.1:8080 - Jetty by default starts on port 8080

In my case, I have created one index.html file and I place it here:

C:\Users\myUserName\Documents\myJetty\my-firstJettyTest\src\main\webapp
