    3. Thank you for posting this step-by-step. I surely needed it. I’m new to Selenium and I was already confused with server vs. RC and through in IntelliJ and Maven and my head spun. I’m back to using a familiar IDE.

        1. Hi Dwarika,
          Thank you very much for such a nice article. It has helped many of us for sure. Please can you now show us how to start structuring Project. I mean
          evn file and how to start writing test cases and how to keep them versatile.

          It would be great help.

    9. Hello Dwarika,

      Thanks for the tutorial.
      I am here to ask that how can I put the TestNG plugin manually inside the Eclipse and how can I create an XML file for the TestNG manually as while installing the process, it stuck after 43% and giving me a lot of error messages on console. Need your words for the same.

      Thanks & Cheers,
