Integration testing example

Using Jetty, Selenium and JUnit.

This projects shows how you could do integration testing on a modern Web application. It features several techiniques:

  • How to seperate fast unit tests from slow ones.
  • How to start Jetty from JUnit and test against a real web server using Selenium.
  • Using multi browser testing with JUnit's @Parameterized feature.


This project depends on having Selenium server runing on localhost. This is fairly easy to achieve. Just download the Selenium server jar and the appropiate drivers for the browsers you want to test on. You can use this gist as a start stop script for selenium.


You can start the project from Eclipse using the main method in


You can run the dummy fast tests on any machine using

	mvn test

If you have selenium running on local host with the Chrome and Firefox drivers installed, you can run the integration tests using

	mvn test -P integrationtests

The techniques are explained in detail in two blogposts concerning splitting op JUnit tests and using Selenium, JUnit and Jetty for integration testing.
