New to Selenium and working on few hands on activity. Below is my query:

An application has been developed which enrolls the user details to the shipment company. Using the application user can track their shipment status and details.


Below is the Test Procedure:

1.Use the template code.

2.Don't make any changes in DriverSetup file.

3.Only in the suggested section add the code to,

4.Invoke the driver using getWebDriver() method defined in DriverSetup()

Implement the following methods:

public void setFormValues(WebDriver driver)

5.Identify the shipment for user text box and set the value as “Shamili”

6.Identify the Search button and click on the same

public WebElement getNameResultElement(WebDriver driver)

7.In the result page, find the element of 'Shamili' and return it. public WebElement getShipmentResultElement(WebDriver driver)

8.In the result page, find the element of 'SHIP1236' and return it. public WebElement getEmailResultElement(WebDriver driver)

9.In the result page, find the element of '' and return it.

10.Get the e-mail from div id "e- mail" and shipment id from div id "shipment".

11.Validate the values of e-mail and shipmentId using the below methods.

public boolean validateEmail(String eMailID) { public boolean validateShipmentId(String shipmentId)

Validation pattern is given below,


12.Return 'true' or 'false' boolean value based on the findings.

What I have tried:

This is the code that I have done so far. Saw few regEx examples online but none seems to work when I compile it and I am stuck.

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

public class NameLocator {      //DO NOT change the class name
    public static String baseUrl; //Assign '' for baseUrl
    public static WebDriver driver;
    public WebDriver createDriver()
         DriverSetup ds = new DriverSetup();
         driver =  ds.getWebDriver();
         baseUrl = "";
         return driver;
        //Create driver. Assign it to static variable 'driver' and return it
    public void navigate(WebDriver driver){
         //Navigate to the baseUrl
    public void setFormValues(WebDriver driver)
        WebElement userId = driver.findElement("userId"));
        WebElement track = driver.findElement("track"));;
        //set the value for 'Shipment for user' and submit form

    public WebElement getNameResultElement(WebDriver driver) {
        return driver.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body/div/table/tbody/tr[1]/td[2"));
        //Find the element of 'Shamili' and return it
    public WebElement getShipmentResultElement(WebDriver driver) {
        return driver.findElement("shipment"));
         //Find the element of 'SHIP1236' and return it
    public WebElement getEmailResultElement(WebDriver driver) {
        return driver.findElement("e- mail"));
        //Find the element of '' and return it
    public boolean validateEmail(String eMailID) {
       String Emailregex = "^[A-Za-z]\\w{5,29}$";
       //Validate email using regex. 
    public boolean validateShipmentId(String shipmentId) {
       String Shipmentregex = "[A-Z0-9]{8}";
        //Validate shipmentId using regex
    public static void main(String[] args)
        NameLocator reg=new NameLocator();
         //Add required code here

What is the question?

I need to validate the values and return 'true' or 'false' boolean value using RegEx

It is fairly obvious from the title of your question that that is what you want to do. But you still need to explain what the actual problem is with the code you have written.

While compiling my code, I am getting error in 2 places - Validate emailID and Validate ShapmentID. Not sure what should be done to fix it. The errors were - Missing return statement.

Not sure i understand you well, but...

If you want to return boolean value, use find() method.
java - regex isMatch returns false - Stack Overflow[^]
Difference between matches() and find() in Java Regex - Stack Overflow[^]

public static void main(String[] args) throws ParseException {
    Pattern p = Pattern.compile("\\d\\d\\d");
    Matcher m = p.matcher("a123b");

    p = Pattern.compile("^\\d\\d\\d$");
    m = p.matcher("123");

/* output:
