How to Download io.github.bonigarcia and Use It for Browser Automation


Using WebDriverManager, we can download the binary file (or .exe files) of the driver for automation testing. In this article, we will discuss the significance of WebDriverManager in automation and also how to use it in Selenium for automation testing by covering the details under the following topics:

We know that to execute Selenium automation scripts on browsers like chrome or firefox, we must download the binary files of these drivers like chromedriver and geckodriver, etc. After this, we need to set the path to these binaries in the automation script or add the classpath location.


So if you want to execute Selenium WebDriver automation scripts on the Chrome browser, then you need first to download chromedriver.exe and then use the System.setProperty method to set its path as follows:


The above downloading process and setting the file path repeats for each driver instance we are using to execute automation scripts. And if we want to run the scripts on different operating systems(say Windows, macOS, and Linux), then the entire process of downloading driver binaries and the setting path becomes more monotonous. Also, the hard work doesn't stop here. When new binaries or new browser versions are released, we will have to check the compatibility for each executable once again and then repeat the process if there are compatibility issues.


In a nutshell, this process of manually downloading the executables, setting their path in scripts, and then executing the scripts is time-consuming and inefficient. In the latest versions, Selenium provides us with a "WebDriverManager" class that automates this process for us to concentrate on Selenium scripts rather than on browser settings.


WebDriverManager in Selenium, as mentioned above, is a class that allows us to download and set the browser driver binaries without us, as developers, having to put them in automation scripts manually.


The next step is to set the browser binaries. WebDriverManager has an automated way to download browser executables(exes) or binaries. It supports different browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Opera, or PhantomJS.

Note: We can also include WebDriverManager in Maven or Gradle project as a dependency. Then these IDEs download the latest version of WebDriverManager if it is not already present in the cache.


If your organization has a proxy server, you need to specify proxy server details like server name or IP address, username, and password to the WebDriverManager. Otherwise, it may raise/ cause errors like io.github.bonigarcia.wdm.WebDriverManagerException: java.net.UnknownHostException: chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com.


Hi @jkarakas,We will look into this issue. In the mean time, please go to -us/microsoft-edge/tools/webdriver/ to download the appropriate driver for your Edge Chromium browser, and replace it manually by following the guide at -studio/docs/handle-webdrivers.html#replace-webdriver-binaries-application-level.


Manually downloading and managing these drivers for each operating systems is very painful. We also have to check when new versions of the binaries are released / new browsers versions are released. We should check the compatibility for all the executables and add it.


Yes. WebDriverManager by Boni Garcia does this. Webdrivermanager helps to download binanries/executables in an automated way. It supports browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera, PhantomJS, Microsoft Edge, or Internet Explorer.


We just need to add its dependency through Maven or Gradle to download all the necessary drivers. It will download ONLY if they are not present on the WebDriverManager cache (/.m2/repository/webdriver by default).


When we use webdrivermanager, By default, it tries to download the latest version of a given driver binary. if you want to use a specific version of driver, we can do that by using WebDriverManager.chromedriver().version("2.40").setup();


You can force WebDriverManager to download specific versions by changing the value of the variables in webdrivermanager.properties for wdm.chromeDriverVersion, wdm.operaDriverVersion, wdm.internetExplorerDriverVersion, or wdm.edgeDriverVersion to a concrete version.


If you read my previous post about writing the first selenium script using code modular you will find that we tried to run our selenium script by downloading the chrome driver and geckodriver to our local machine and provided the location in our project.


There is an open source utility called "webdrivermanager" to handle WebDriver binaries (chromedriver, operadriver, IEDriverServer) in Java. This library downloads the latest version of the WebDriver binary you need, store it in the Maven local repository (.m2/repository), and export the proper Java system variable (webdriver.chrome.driver, webdriver.opera.driver, webdriver.ie.driver):
