  5. Add all the JAR files inside and outside the “libs” folder. Your Properties window after adding all the jar file should  now look similar to the image below.
  6. Finally, click OK and we have completed importing Selenium libraries into our project.

Step 6 : Write code for Login SugarCRM

import org.openqa.selenium.*;



public class testClass {

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception

{   System.out.println(“launching chrome browser”);         //Use in Chrome browser     System.setProperty(“”,”E:\\Project_Work\\Selenium\\selenium 3.4\\chromewebsriver 2.30win-32\\chromedriver.exe”);

ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();     //Arguments added to ignore other notifications an disable extensions


WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(options);     driver.manage().window().maximize();     //Open Sugarcrm  Development Login Sugar CRM

driver.get(“”);     driver.findElement(“user_name”)).sendKeys(new String[] { “admin” });

driver.findElement(“user_password”)).sendKeys(new String[] { “admin@123” });




System.out.println(“System Logged-in”);
