Hi all,

I'm using Xebium tot test all our web-apps in different versions of Chrome, IE and Firefox. 
I set up a large number of VM's for this to be able to test all on different combinations of OS & Browsers,

Is there a way to make testing with Xebium also possible for Edge browser on Microsofts Windows 10?

I did find a webdriver for Edge but only putting this on my system path is no enough to get this working.

For example I would like to start my test scenario like this:

| start browser | edge | on url | !-! |

If anyone got Xebium working with Edge browser, any help on how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated.

I have modified my SeleniumDriverFixture to accept different browser type based on request. You can just add one more if() block to add ur edge browser and it should be work. I attached my code, let me know if you need anymore information.

* | start browser | <i>firefox</i> | on url | <i>http://localhost</i> |

public void startBrowserOnUrl(final String browser, final String browserUrl) {

if ("chrome".equalsIgnoreCase(browser)) {

System.setProperty("", "../WebDrivers/chromedriver.exe");
WebDriver chwebDriver = new ChromeDriver(); // new ChromeDriver();
startDriverOnUrl(chwebDriver, browserUrl);
} else if ("iexplore".equalsIgnoreCase(browser)) {
System.setProperty("", "../WebDrivers/IEDriverServer.exe");
WebDriver iewebDriver = new InternetExplorerDriver();
startDriverOnUrl(iewebDriver, browserUrl);


else if ("phantomjs".equalsIgnoreCase(browser)) {

System.setProperty("webdriver.phantomJS.driver", "../WebDrivers/phantomjs.exe");
// System.setProperty("phantomjs.binary.path",
// "../WebDrivers/phantomjs.exe");
WebDriver pjwebDriver = new PhantomJSDriver();
startDriverOnUrl(pjwebDriver, browserUrl);

} else if ("firefox".equalsIgnoreCase(browser)) {
WebDriver ffxDriver = new FirefoxDriver();
startDriverOnUrl(ffxDriver, browserUrl);
