Enabling Google Chrome browsers

To use HCL OneTest™ UI to test HTML applications that run on Google Chrome browsers, you must enable the Google Chrome browser manually.

Before you begin

Ensure that you install the Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6 update 10 or later, and associate the JRE with the Google Chrome browser.

About this task

Note: If you have Google Chrome version 33 or later, you must download the HCL OneTest UI for Google Chrome extension from Chrome web store. If you already had the extension and then you upgraded to Chrome version 33 or later, you must uninstall the extension and install it again from the Chrome web store.
You can enable the browser manually by using one of the following methods:
  • By enabling the browser from the Enable Environments dialog box in HCL OneTest UI. The browser opens and you are prompted to add the HCL OneTest UI for Google Chrome™ extension to the browser.
  • By adding the HCL OneTest UI for Google Chrome extension to the browser from the Google Chrome web store. For instructions to do this, see Adding the HCL OneTest UI for Google Chrome extension. Ensure that you have an Internet connection to access the extension from the Google Chrome web store. After adding the extension, verify that the browser is enabled by opening the Enable Environments dialog box in HCL OneTest UI.

Procedure

  1. In HCL OneTest UI, click Configure > Enable Environments for Testing to invoke the Enable Environments dialog box (the enabler).
  2. Click the Web Browsers tab. Add the Google Chrome browser to the Web Browsers list by doing the following:
    1. Click Search. The Search for Web Browsers dialog box opens.
    2. Search for the Google Chrome browser using any of the following search methods:
      • Select Search All to let the enabler locate all the browsers on your system. HCL OneTest UI scans all the hard disk drives or partitions, and lists the browsers in the Web Browsers list.
      • Select Search In to browse to a specific disk drive or root directory to search.
    3. Click the Search button.
  3. On the Web Browsers tab, click Chrome in the Web Browsers list, and click Enable. The Google Chrome browser opens and you are prompted to add the HCL OneTest UI for Google Chrome extension to the browser. If you intend to add the extension, click Continue and then click OK. The extension is added to the browser, and the browser is enabled for functional testing. On the Web Browsers tab In the Enable Environments dialog box, the enabled status is indicated in parentheses after the Google Chrome browser name in the Web Browsers list.
  4. Test that the browser is enabled properly by clicking the Test button to run the Browser Enablement Diagnostic Tool.
  5. In the Enable Environments dialog box, click Finish.
