Hi ,

This tutorial is intended to written for beginners and in this example, we would see how to set-up and launch a website in chrome browser (for example: https://jasper-bi-suite.blogspot.com/) using java selenium.

1. Download Eclipse zip from  https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
2. Install java 1.8 or later and set path & class path in windows os.
3. Download suitable chromedriver.exe from https://chromedriver.chromium.org/downloads
      NOTE : This example is tested on : Version 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)
4. Download selenium jar files and configure in Eclipse Build Path as (Referenced Libraries)

5. Write FirstTestCase.java class with the code shown in below.
6. Run as "Java Applicaiton".

In the java class, ensure to have the following : 
1)  System set property  -  using this call the chromedriver.exe
2)  Declaring driver - driver declaration
3)  navigate().to - method to navigate to a given site.
4)     ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();

        driver = new ChromeDriver(options);

Watch this ~15 sec video for execution of this case.
