Hello,
I have a couple of "unresolved" issues.  I tried fixing my problems using the options within Eclipse, but nothing works.
I know that I have in import/install the org.opeqa.selenium API, yet can't find the API at org.openqa, and I know that my Selenium API needs to be installed as well.  I thought I did have it via Selinity - Selenium plugin, but I guess not.
These are my issues;
import org.openqa...cannot be resolved
FirefoxDriver cannot be resolved to a type
Method undined for WebDriver

This is the code;
import org.junit.Test;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

public class MyFirstWebdriverTest<WebDriver> {
      @Test
      public void checkSeleniumHQinFirefox(){
        WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
        driver.get("http://seleniumhq.org");
        driver.quit();
      }
}

Hi Chima,

You need to download the selenium web driver jars from here and add this to your project build path..

http://selenium-release.storage.googleapis.com/3.1/selenium-java-3.1.0.zip

Download the above link and then you find selenium jar which needs to be added to build path.

Siva, I downloaded the Selenium zip file, extracted the file/folder, and added the path to the System Environmental variable path;
C:\Selenium-java-3.1.0\lib     Yet this did not solve my "resolve" issue.  I'll search for the solution, yet I thought I'd enter this comment here/now.

Chima, you are using eclipse right?

You need to add the jar files to the build path of the project, no need to add them to the path.

You can refer to this tutorial:

http://www.wikihow.com/Add-JARs-to-Project-Build-Paths-in-Eclipse-(Java)

Method 2 [Add external jars] as that's the easiest one, but method 1 ensures all dependencies are in one project.
