Aqua 2022.3 Help

Create a new project

Development in Aqua starts with a project. Projects help you organize your code and resources in a single unit that is easy to store and share. In simple words, a project is a directory that keeps everything that makes up your application. A typical project normally has a set of settings and one or several modules.

If you don't not know how to start the first Selenium project, it is possible to automatically set up a new project with the appropriate testing framework.

Create a new Selenium project

  1. Launch Aqua.

    If the Welcome screen opens, click New Project. Otherwise, from the main menu, select File | New | Project.

  2. From the list on the left, under Generators, select Selenium.

    The New Project wizard
  3. Name the new project and change its location if necessary.

  4. Select the Create Git repository checkbox to place the new project under version control.

    You will be able to do it later at any time.

  5. From the Language list, select the language that you want to use in your application.

  6. Select the build system that you want to use in your project: Maven or Gradle.

    For Gradle, you will also need to select a language for the build script: Groovy or Kotlin.

  7. Select the testing framework: JUnit or TestNG.

  8. From the JDK list, select the JDK that you want to use in your project.

    If the JDK is installed on your computer, but not defined in the IDE, select Add JDK and specify the path to the JDK home directory.

    If you don't have the necessary JDK on your computer, select Download JDK.

  9. Enable the Add sample code option to create a class with a sample HelloWorld application and click Next.

  10. On the next page of the wizard, select the Selenium version and select dependencies if you need more than the selected default ones.
