The command from jenkins is

mvn clean test

The error is-:

Are you running this commands from the same machine? I mean running mvn clean test on command line and Jenkins on the same machine? Also, your logs shows that you have issue with some chrome library. Are you executing your logs on Chrome?

I am running commands on same machine.  Test runs successfully when i run directly from command prompt. I don't know why there is error with chrome library.  I am not using logs on chrome.

Is that opening chrome window? Are you facing problem even  before chrome starts? Are you using new ChromeDriver() to  start chrome driver?

I m using firefox browser. My code is

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterClass;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class GoogleHomePageTest {
    private WebDriver driver;
    String appURL = "";

    public void testSetUp() {
        System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver", "C://Selenium driver/geckodriver.exe");
        DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
        capabilities.setCapability("marionette", true);

        driver = new FirefoxDriver();
    public void verifyGooglePageTittle() {
        String getTitle = driver.getTitle();
        Assert.assertEquals(getTitle, "Google");
    public void tearDown() {

There can be two possibilities.

1. Your GWT is outdated. In that case, you will have to upgrade your Firefox browser. We had similar issue. But, after upgrading to Firefox version 50 we did not see this error.

2. Heap memory is not sufficient through Jenkins. To increase heap memory of Jenkins, edit Jenkins.xml file and update your heap size.

JENKINS_JAVA_OPTIONS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx -XX:MaxPermSize="

Also, make sure that no gekodriver or Firefox process is running and clear temp file folder.

Let us know which solution works for you.

I have updated Firefox. and cleared Temp folder contents. I could not edit jenkins.xml. Contents of jenkins.xml are
  <description>This service runs Jenkins continuous integration system.</description>
  <env name="JENKINS_HOME" value="%BASE%" />
- <!--     if you'd like to run Jenkins with a specific version of Java, specify a full path to java.exe.
    The following value assumes that you have java in your PATH.
  <arguments>-Xrs -Xmx256m -Dhudson.lifecycle=hudson.lifecycle.WindowsServiceLifecycle -jar "%BASE%\jenkins.war" --httpPort=8080 --webroot="%BASE%\war"</arguments>
- <!--     interactive flag causes the empty black Java window to be displayed.
    I'm still debugging this.
  <interactive />
  <onfailure action="restart" />
Where should I include new line.

You can pass this as an argument.


<arguments>-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx -XX:MaxPermSize=512m  -Xrs -Xmx256m -Dhudson.lifecycle=hudson.lifecycle.WindowsServiceLifecycle -jar "%BASE%\jenkins.war" --httpPort=8080 --webroot="%BASE%\war"</arguments>
