when running workflows using Selenium, the WebDriver “high-jacks” my mouse (for apparent reasons). However, this blocks me from using my computer i.e. to inspect the interim results or continue working on other aspects of this or other workflows. Interfering with Selenium by continuing my mouse can break the execution.
Using Virtualbox + Selenium Server to offload testing is:
- Consuming system resources for virtualization which are needed for knime
- VM setup isn’t that easy (would be uncharted territory)
This begs the question, is it possible to create a second cursor / pointer or unlock the mouse as if the WebDriver is ran in headless mode?
