It is very easy to build and manage any Java-based projects through Maven.
In this blog, you will learn to create the Selenium Maven project with the help of TestNG with Eclipse through a few quick instructions through images. This process will hardly require 5 or a maximum of 10 minutes of time.
You may be already using TestNG and Webdriver with Eclipse. However, if you aren’t, then firstly, check if you have installed a TestNG plugin in Eclipse.
