zc.buildout recipe for installing the Selenium RC distribution.

Project description

This package downloads and installs Selenium RC using zc.buildout. It is based on

buildout.cfg example:

parts = seleniumrc

recipe = collective.recipe.seleniumrc

A control script will be created based on the part name. In this case a control script will be created in bin/seleniumrc

You may also be interested in the selenium module for Python which allows you to control Selenium RC.

You can also choose the exact version of Selenium RC to be used:

parts = seleniumrc

recipe = collective.recipe.seleniumrc
url =
md5sum = 8935cc7fe4dde2fd2a95ddd818e7493b

Sometimes you may want to use another Java executable:

parts = seleniumrc

recipe = collective.recipe.seleniumrc
java-cmd = /home/www/java/bin/java

To suppress all default values (e.g., to install without verifying the MD5 checksum), use the ‘no-defaults’ option:

parts = seleniumrc

recipe = collective.recipe.seleniumrc
url =
java-cmd = /home/www/java/bin/java
