Selenium Function Library

Poornima and I built collection of java Classes for selenium which provide capabilities which are not built in Selenium like - HTML Table Parsing, Custom Verification, Logging to name a few. This project is been existent from some time now, though I never had chance to write up on this. Whole project is available under "Repository" section of Veda for "Testing Competency" project and can be opened using java IDE like Eclipe.
Best way to get acquainted with this API is to generate java doc your self which is no more than child's play.
Make sure you have java 1.5 or higher and ANT 1.7.0
Configure System variable for Java and ANT, once having done this u should be able to see version of java and ant on your console on doing - "java-version" and "ant -verison"
On Console navigate to path where Sel Library is check out, it turns out to be following for me -
"D:\SelFunctionLibrary\SeleniumFunctionLibrary>"
Execute following ANT Target -
D:\SelFunctionLibrary\SeleniumFunctionLibrary>ant -buildfile build.xml javadoc
This will build java doc files in "javadoc" folder of Sel library, which describes package, methods and classes available in Sel Library. These files are in html format and can be easily opened using browser. You should see following out put on execution ANT Target -
