6. How to send email from your selenium webdriver test?
a. When you run your TCs through TestNG, a test-output folder is created, which contains a file with name emailable-report.html,so basically you need to send that file as an attachment to the stakeholders. Here I’ve considered the fact that your localhost is configured to send emails.

import java.util.*;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activation.*;

public class SendFileEmail
public static void main(String [] args)

// Recipient’s email ID needs to be mentioned.
String to = “”;
// Sender’s email ID needs to be mentioned
String from = “”;
// Assuming you are sending email from localhost
String host = “localhost”;
// Get system properties
Properties properties = System.getProperties();
// Setup mail server
properties.setProperty(“”, host);
// Get the default Session object.
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(properties);

// Create a default MimeMessage object.
MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(session);
// Set From: header field of the header.
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
// Set To: header field of the header.
new InternetAddress(to));

// Set Subject: header field
message.setSubject(“This is the Subject Line!”);

// Create the message part
BodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();

// Fill the message
messageBodyPart.setText(“This is message body”);

// Create a multipar message
Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();

// Set text message part

// Part two is attachment
messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
String filename = ““;
DataSource source = new FileDataSource(filename);
messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(source));

// Send the complete message parts
message.setContent(multipart );

// Send message
System.out.println(“Sent message successfully….”);
}catch (MessagingException mex) {

7.How to manage cross browser testing in selenium webdriver?
a. import org.openqa.selenium.By;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;


import org.testng.annotations.AfterClass;

import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;

import org.testng.annotations.Parameters;

import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class MultiBrowser {

public WebDriver driver;



// Passing Browser parameter from TestNG xml

public void beforeTest(String browser) {

// If the browser is Firefox

if(browser.equalsIgnoreCase(“firefox”)) {

driver = new FirefoxDriver();

// If browser is IE

}else if (browser.equalsIgnoreCase(“ie”)) {

// path for IEDriver

System.setProperty(“”, “D:\IEDriverServer.exe”);

driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();




// Test method

@Test public void login() throws InterruptedException {






@AfterClass public void afterTest() {



8.Drag and Drop action in Webdriver?
a. Lets take an example of the site ‘’

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;

public class JqueryElements {

public static void main(String[] args) {

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

Actions act = new Actions(driver);

// Script for dragging an element and dropping it in another place
WebElement iFrame = driver.findElement(By.tagName(“iframe”));

WebElement From = driver.findElement(“draggable”));

WebElement To = driver.findElement(“droppable”));

act.dragAndDrop(From, To).build().perform();


9. How to take a screenshot of an element using Selenium WebDriver?
a. WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
// Now you can do whatever you need to do with it, for example copy somewhere
FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File(“c:\\tmp\\screenshot.png”));

10. How to time your tests in selenium
a. final long startTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
for (int i = 0; i < length; i++) { // Do something } final long endTime = System.currentTimeMillis(); System.out.println("Total execution time: " + (endTime - startTime) ); 11. How to retrieve a specific cell value from a web table using Selenium WebDriver
a. Here in this example i covering how to retrieve a specific cell value from Web Table using Selenium WebDriver:

The below code works well if the Cell contains plain text than any other controls etc.

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
public class PopupDialog
public static void main(String[] args)
WebDriver driver=new FirefoxDriver();

Alert alt=driver.switchTo().alert();

13. How to work with FireFox profiles?
a. ProfilesIni profile = new ProfilesIni();
FirefoxProfile myprofile = profile.getProfile(“profile1”);
WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(myprofile);

14. How to work with FireFox profile?
a. Creating New Profile:
1. Close FF browser, open task manager and kill FF instance.
2. Open Run window using window key + R Key.
3. Type firefox.exe -p
4. Choose user profile dialog will open.

If it still does not open then you may need to specify the full path of the Firefox program, enclosed in quotes; for example

  • On 32-bit Windows: “C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe” -p
  • On 64-bit Windows: “C:Program Files (x86)Mozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe” -p

5. Create new profile, and give desired name.
6. Click on the ‘Start Firefox’ box. Firefox will start with the new profile.
