Uploading a file using AutoIt
As we all know, Selenium will not support window based elements. To upload/download we need to use some third party tools.

Below post explains how to upload a file from local drive using AutoIt.

(This code is to select a file from window after clicking on browse button from web page, After this we have click on upload button from web page)

WinWaitActive("File Upload")

Write this code in Notepad and save the file as “Upload.au3”
Right Clicked on the created file “Upload.au3” and click on Compile Script.
You will get “Upload.exe” file

Call this file in Selenium script or in RFT script as below:

Process proc = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\\Temp\\ Upload.exe");

Sample Selenium Code using AutoIt upload:

public class Upload {
public WebDriver driver;

public void setUp() throws Exception {
driver= new FirefoxDriver();
public void testTestScenario1() throws Exception
Process proc = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\\Temp\\Upload.exe");
driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@title='Upload file']")).click();

public void tearDown() throws Exception {

Cross BrowserTesting using Selenium Webdriver and TestNG
This is an attempt to explain the feature of selenium webdriver and TestNG.

Generally we will run a single test case or script at a time. If you want to run  a single test on different browsers it is possible with selenium webdriver and TestNG. Test will be executed parallel in two browsers.

Lets we can achieve this


Sample Script:
Create a sample webdriver script using TestNG and in that script define a parameter using @Parameter annotation.

Below is the sample script:

Create TestNG:
Create a testNG.xml file to run your script. Parameter value we can pass it from here.

Below is the sample TestNG.xml file

Run your TestNG.xml file and three browsers will open and script will run on 3 browsers parallel.
