    • Linux
  • JDK 7+
  • Maven 3
  • current browser
    • stable or latest Chrome

  • Enough RAM to run Maven build and browser

Installing Galenium

To use Galenium, you need a Galenium Maven project on your local machine.

To set up the project, you can

  1. do it from scratch
  2. copy the example projects
  3. run the Maven Archetype

Recommended way is to use the Archetype.

Set up using Archetype

You will need a CLI to call the Maven Archetype. In this tutorial we will assume GitBash, but any CLI that runs Maven is fine.

Decide which folder you want to install your Galenium project to. We will assume it is /my/local/dev/folder.

Switch to the folder. If it does not exist yet, you will have to create it.

user@machine ~
$ cd /my/local/dev/folder
Archetype interactive

Next execute the Archetype by running the following command:

user@machine /my/local/dev/folder
$ mvn archetype:generate

This will execute the latest release version of Galenium Archetype in interactive mode. You will be asked for missing information like group ID, artifact ID, and so on.

Archetype non-interactive

To avoid the interactive mode, you need to specify all information as command line parameters.

user@machine /my/local/dev/folder
$ mvn archetype:generate -Dversion=0.1.0-SNAPSHOT -Dpackage=my.root.packagename -DprojectName=MyTestAutomationProject

The only interaction will be to confirm your choices:

Confirm properties configuration:
version: 0.1.0-SNAPSHOT
projectName: MyTestAutomationProject
package: my.root.packagename
 Y: :

Just hit enter and the project will be generated.

After running Archetype

The Archetype should have set up a multi module build now.

Which means you should have the following structure in your local folder:

user@machine /my/local/dev/folder
$ ls */*
pom.xml  src/
pom.xml  src/

To learn more about the modules and what they do you can read more in the developer's guide

Running Galenium

From project root run this to compile and run tests:

user@machine /my/local/dev/folder/
$ mvn clean install -Plocal-dev

After the build is done you can find the reports here:

  • /my/local/dev/folder/
  • /my/local/dev/folder/
