Java Selenium 3.141.59 – Webdriver timed out waiting for driver server to start

Issue

I know there’s a lot of similar posts on this issue on Stack Overflow; (link, link, link, etc.) but none of them seem to resolve my problem; in which I have updated the Chromedriver version to the latest Chrome version that I am using, but it appears as though it is just not starting / opening Chrome at all. Can anyone suggest something that I am doing wrong?

Code:

logger.info("*** Chrome Simulation(): default viewport");
String exePath = System.getProperty(USER_DIR) + "\\src\\main\\resources\\chromedriver.exe";

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", exePath);
ChromeOptions chromeOptions = new ChromeOptions();
chromeOptions.addArguments("--start-maximized");

// chromeOptions.addArguments("--headless");
// chromeOptions.addArguments("--disable-gpu");
// chromeOptions.addArguments("--window-size=1920,1080");

driver = new ChromeDriver(chromeOptions);

driver.get(browserMeta.getProperties().getProperty(DESKTOP_URL));

When I try to run the code using a maven command:

mvn test "-Dcucumber.options=--tags '@Test'" -Denv=t1 -Dopenreport=false -DforkCount=0 -DreuseForks=false

to start the execution but I get the following error message / stacktrace:

Timed out waiting for driver server to start.

Solution

Following on from the chat in the Selenium room with @undetected-selenium I managed to get it working; but it wasn’t just Selenium that I had to upgrade. Part of my pom.xml files were interrelated and I also had to upgrade the following elements; which I was also using:

  • cucumber-java to v7.3.3
  • cucumber-junit to v7.3.3
  • commons-io to v2.11.0
  • cucumber-core to v7.3.3

Once I had these upgraded; the solution worked as previously mentioned.
