Hey we are wanting to add Edge browser support to our current qa testing.  Are the Edge selenium tools available for java?  Or how best to create testing for the Edge Browsers after version 80 for java selenium without getting Edge Driver v4?  We are using selenium 3 currently throughout and if we can stay on that would be ideal.

@spat109 thanks for the inquiry. The short answer is: yes, you can use Java and automate Edge using Selenium. Here is a more detailed article for how best to proceed: WebDriver (Chromium) - Microsoft Edge Development | Microsoft Docs

 

Hope that helps.

Hey John,

 

Thanks for the info.  I was on that page earlier, from my understanding, our only option for testing edge with java are to switch to Selenium 4 (4.0.0-alpha05)? 

 

I was wanting to know if it's possible with Selenium 3 like it is for C#, python, and javascript but do not see any Selenium Tools available for Java like those others?
