SeleniumRC and FireFox3

We have started playing with Selenium for some automated testing at my day job. (I’ve been a proponent of Selenium, but I haven’t played with it directly for a bit.)

I ran into a problem, as described by the Space Vatican. Luckily, he also had the solution to the problem.

I took his command-line instructions and created two scripts to run those command on a given file (‘cuz my file was named differently than the one in his script). Here are the contents of the script:

jar xf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFFCHROME/extensions/readystate@openqa.org/install.rdf
jar xf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFFCHROME/extensions/{538F0036-F358-4f84-A764-89FB437166B4}/install.rdf
jar xf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFFCHROME/extensions/\{503A0CD4-EDC8-489b-853B-19E0BAA8F0A4\}/install.rdf
jar xf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFF/extensions/readystate\@openqa.org/install.rdf
jar xf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFF/extensions/\{538F0036-F358-4f84-A764-89FB437166B4\}/install.rdf
jar uf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFFCHROME/extensions/readystate@openqa.org/install.rdf
jar uf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFFCHROME/extensions/{538F0036-F358-4f84-A764-89FB437166B4}/install.rdf
jar uf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFFCHROME/extensions/\{503A0CD4-EDC8-489b-853B-19E0BAA8F0A4\}/install.rdf
jar uf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFF/extensions/readystate\@openqa.org/install.rdf
jar uf $1 customProfileDirCUSTFF/extensions/\{538F0036-F358-4f84-A764-89FB437166B4\}/install.rdf

And if you’d like, and feel like trusting me, here is the resultant, FF3-friendly, jar file : selenium-server-1.0-beta-1.jar
