Create And Set Workspace :
For creating good structured data driven framework for your selenium webdriver software testing Project, First of all you have to create project work space In your local drive as bellow.
  • Create folder "backup" Inside E: drive
  • Create folder "Training" Inside "backup" Folder.
Now we will store all data driven framework related stuff at "E:\backup\Training" folder.

Start "eclipse.exe" from your downloaded eclipse folder and select "E:\backup\Training" folder as your work space.

Create New Project
