Jenkins : Selenium GUI tests are not visible on Windows 7

When I run my selenium test (mvn test) from jenkins (windows) I see only the console output. I don't see the real browsers getting opened. How can I configure jenkins so that I can see the browsers running the test?

    I think you're mis-understanding the reason you would use Jenkins, i believe it's designed to do exactly what it is doing, you need to install a different test-framework along with Maven and Selenium.

    Jenkins is an open source DevOps tool which is basically use to automate repetitive tasks like code deployment on server.

    SERVER being the main operating word here, you are trying to run your automation scripts from your desktop.

    Above is a video tutorial of how to setup Maven and a very popular automation test framework, testNG.

    Give me a shout if you need any more from me,
