Playwright

Playwright module provides a method to launch a browser instance. The following is a typical example of using Playwright to drive automation:

import com.microsoft.playwright.*;

public class Example {
public static void main(String[] args) {
try (Playwright playwright = Playwright.create()) {
BrowserType chromium = playwright.chromium();
Browser browser = chromium.launch();
Page page = browser.newPage();
page.navigate("http://example.com");
// other actions...
browser.close();
}
}
}
