nvalid or corrupt jar file when trying to start selenium server from intelliJ

287    6 months ago

I am trying to start my selenium server from intelliJ and it is saying the file is corrupt.

I use intelliJ to run my protractor tests, and I start the selenium server from the intelliJ terminal before I run them. For whatever reason it is saying my jar file for selenium-server-standalone is coming back as corrupt. Is there a way to fix this and, if not, is there a way to delete and then reinstall selenium server?

As you can see, it is just exiting after it comes back as corrupt. I haven't had issues with this before. I did try to update the webdriver.

I found a workaround, which may or may not be acceptable. You can force webdriver-manager to use an older version of the selenium-standalone package. This avoids whatever the problem is with 4.0.0-alpha-1.

$ webdriver-manager clean
$ webdriver-manager update --standalone --versions.standalone=3.8.0
$ webdriver-manager start --versions.standalone=3.8.0
