Problem: You’re invoking a Selenium test suite via the command line and the Java jar file, using something like
java -jar selenium-server-1.0-SNAPSHOT-standalone.jar -htmlSuite $browser http://localhost/csfunctionaltests/ $testSuitePath $testReportPath
Where all those $ thingies are input parameters. You’re finding that a suite you’re running loads into the Selenium TestRunner fine, but then just sits there and never executes.
Solution: Double check that you’re loading a suite and not a test case. Test cases will load fine into the TestRunner, but won’t ever actually launch off. You get no error message, just a hung test.
Not that I’ve done this myself, mind you. I just know someone who might have done this. Just sayin’.
