PhpStorm/XAMPP/Windows 7/Selenium - How to configure?

I'm very new with PhpStorm and have to do some Selenium functional tests. PhpStorm seems to be great (I'm evaluating it for my team) but I'm feeling a little bit lost how to setup for using it with Selenium.

Beside PhpStorm everything works. I can start the Server (java -jar c:\xampp\selenium\selenium-server-standalone-2.35.0.jar) and on command line I can run "phpunit [name of the test file]". This works as expected opens the browser and doing the tests, giving feedback over the command line.

Now my questions are:

  • How well is this setup covered with PhpStorm?
  • Can PhpStorm run the Java-Server too?
  • How do I have to configure it to get it workinig with PhpStorm?
  • When I open my test-file

    class Example extends PHPUnit_Extensions_SeleniumTestCase
    {
      protected function setUp()
      {
        $this->setBrowser("googlechrome");
        $this->setBrowserUrl("http://demo.magentocommerce.com/");
      }


    It tells me that setBrowser and setBrowserUrl methods aren't found... But functions like open, waitForPage and so on are found. How can I fix this?


I've searched on the net about this environment but couldn't find the right instructions to set it up. Please help me a little bit to get me on the right track.
