 In the context of selenium, you can solve and troubleshoot the issue of “ type.org.openqa.selenium.chrome.chromedriver is not accessible” by using the following steps:-

Checking dependencies Configuration

Try to ensure that the selenium-based web driver and chrome driver dependencies should be correctly configured in your particular build file . Here is an example given for maven:-


    org.seleniumhq.selenium

    selenium-java

    3.141.59



    io.github.bonigarcia

    webdrivermanager

    4.4.3


Verifying import statement

You should double-check the import statement for the ChromeDriver class in your particular test script. It should be like the following:-

Import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

Here is an example of coding given which demonstrates how to configure ChromeDriver and resolve this particular error:-

Import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
Import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
Public class ChromeDriverExample {
    Public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Set path to ChromeDriver executable
        System.setProperty(“webdriver.chrome.driver”, “path/to/chromedriver”);
        // Instantiate ChromeDriver
        WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
        // Perform actions on the WebDriver instance
        // Close the browser
        Driver.quit();
    }
}
