Alternatively, you can specify your group dependencies in the testng.xml file. You use the
<dependencies> tag to achieve this:

Please find the answers that I gave as below :

Note : The expectation was only a pseudocode logic as it was on paper and not on java IDE and please
consider a few syntactical differences if any.
1. Int[] someArray = {1,5, 1,2,8,15,9,23,4,5};
Write the logic to find the number of ways any two integers in the array would total to 10
You can make the array a list if you wish to
Answer :
int[] someArray = new int[] {1,5, 1,2,8,15,9,23,4,5};
int count = 0;
int expectedSum = 10;
for (int i = 0; i <someArray.length ; i++) {
for (int j = i+1; j <someArray.length ; j++) {
if((someArray[i] + someArray[j]) == expectedSum){
System.out.println(someArray[i] + " " + someArray[j]);
System.out.println("the number of times the sum is 10 is :" + count);

1. Int[] array = {1,2,3,4,5,2,1,9,3};

Find the duplicates

int[] someArray = new int[] {1,2,3,4,5,2,1,9,3};

int countDuplicates = 0;
for (int i = 0; i <someArray.length ; i++) {
for (int j = i+1; j <someArray.length; j++) {
if (someArray[i] == someArray[j]){
System.out.println("the number of duplicates is : " +countDuplicates);

Serenity with BDD ( emphasis was more on API automation)

1. Given webtable. Write the xpath that gets all the rows
Answer :
String xpath = "//div[@class='tableOne']/tr" -- ignoring the remaining hierarchyof
elements in between div and tr tags
String xpath2 = "//div[@class='tableOne']/descendant::/tr" considering the remaining
hierarchyof elements in between div and tr tags
List<WebElement> allRows = driver.findElements(By.xpath(xpath)); use any xpath as
iterating through allRows would fetch elements of each row

2. How do you find out the broken links through API verification
Answer : Get list of all anchor tags. Navigate through each link with RestAssured.get() and check the
statuscode == 400.
Which translates to page not found . store all the links that return 404 and that list would give you all
the broken links
List<WebElement> allHyperlinks = driver.findElements(By.tagName("a"));

3. Convert json source during post to string

1) Details of the Rest API Framework in project:

Response: REST API framework is best useful when we are in an agile Model, where
development and testing happens in parallel, whenever the backend has been developed, but
we don’t have a proper UI or a front end, we can go ahead with REST API testing, as it is a
business layer when the application is not UI ready we can go ahead for the Business layer
testing with the underlying Database layer, there are four types of rest Requests GET, POST,
Folder structure of the Framework:

2) How do u handle the payload in the request API

Response: Payload can be handled either in JSON format or XML format in REST Assured API, in JSON the
values can be parameterized and fetched from a different file/database

3) Nested Json handling in the API response and its validation based on a reference
Response: nested json can be handled as arrays and then as hashmaps but considering the nested json
as a value for a key, each json file containing the parentheses “[“ has to considered as array and the
nested json having the value containing parentheses “{“ has to be handled using hashmap

4) How do u compare the JSON file with a response from a GET request

Follow up question on Jackson API/ GSON

Response: JSON files and reponse from a POST request can be compared by converting the response to
string using toString() method
Json files string can be fetched using hashmap and then converted to string,
Additionally Jackson APi/ GSon can be used for comparision
FollowUp question on Jackson I couldn’t answer, not able to recollect the question too
5) Wat are the different Response codes in a rest response
Reponse: 1xx, 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, 5xx

6) What does 5xx reponse code infer to?

Response: 5xx refers to Error at the server end

7) When Do we get 5xx reponse and how do u handle such errors

Follow Up question, how do u handle server errors and the process to debug the error Codes

Follow Up question , do u acccess Splunk to get server Logs?

Reponse: 5xx refers to Server side errors, first and foremost thing that we do is to ping the server IP and
check if its up and running, in case we have access to the server, we login to the server and check if the
port is free using the command netstat –ao, then from the client we will use traacert command to trace
the connection route from the client, post this interviewer asked if we check splunk logs, to that
responded we do not have direct splunk logs access

8) Explain about Serenity framework and the format of API requests in BDD format
Response: Serenity is a BDD framework which can be used in automating UI and Rest APIs, it can be used
with both Jbehave and cucumber for automating the applications by writing the features/scenarios in
plain English sentences, Different keywords used in Serenity are GIVEN, WHEN, THEN, AND,

9) What is meant by GIVEN, WHEN and THEN in BDD and how is it used in REST API
Response: API requests like GET,PUT,POST,DELETE can be handled in given(), when(), then() formats,
where all API Requests are put into when() tag, and URI put into given() and response validations are
taken care in then() tag

10) parameterizing JSON payload:

Response: We can use POJO classes for parametrizing JSON payloads, or we can handle parametrization
by using some external file and access the files using FileReader and get the data and post that can
parametrize payload with the data fetched from the external files

11) program to display all permutations of a string with no duplicates, (Used Index and then a substring
of the remaining characters to display permutations)
static void perm(String str,String res) {

String s = "";

char[] charArr = str.toCharArray();

for(int i=0; i<charArr.length;i++) {

char ch = charArr[i];

s = str.substring(0,i)+str.substring(i+1);


System.out.println("permuted String: "+s);

12) Given an array print out all missing numbers (used n * (n+1)/2 to display missing integers in a range)
static int[] printMissingNumbers(int[] intArr, int n) {

Int missingArr[] = int[n];

For (int i = 1; i<=intArr.length;i++) {

If(i==(intArr[i] * (intArr[i]+1)/2)){

else {

missingArr[i] = I;

13) can we create constructors in an abstract class

Follow up question, If no, How can we handle the constructors

Follow Up question on inheritance

Response: We cannot create constructors for abstract classes, but we need to extend this abstract class
in a child class and then implement the method definition defined in abstract classes, so we cannot
create an instance of the abstract class as there will be few methods having just the definition but not
the implementation

14) program to mention an output of a program using inheritance( private member in parent class to be
accessible in the child class)
Response: Given a program
Class B {

public void method(){

System.out.println(“Inside B”);

Class A extends B {
public void method() {

System.out.println(“Inside A”);

Class main {

Public static void main(String[] args) {

A a = new A();

In the above program by executing this, wat will be the output
Response: “Inside A”

class A extends B{

Public static void main(String[] args) {

A a = new A();

A() {


class B {

private String name;

B(String name) { name;

public void displayName() {

System.out.println("Name is "+;


What will be output of the above, ??

response: We will get a runtime error as private member “name” cannot be accessed outside the class B

16) Difference between abstract and interface:

Response: Abstract methods have both method definition and method implementation, but in case
interfaces we have just method definition but not implementation, This is valid only until Java 7, Java 8
and above we can even have concrete methods in interfaces

15) questions on interfaces:

Don’t recollect the question, but it was straight forward question

16) how to handle any step to be executed before the start of any BDD Scenario and any BDD feature
Response: we need to use Background tag and implement the steps to be executed before each

17) Maven surefire Plugin and config for parallel execution in pom.xml
Response: maven surefire plugin is used for test execution, command used for test execution are mvn
clean -> to clean the target folder and clear the framework of any dangling objects
mvn test -. To start test execution

18) Different components in Docker and why do u use docker in test automation
Response: Docker is a container for executing test cases remotely, Docker Hub, Docker registry
and docker client

19) Swagger Specification

Response: Swagger is a APi specification document that is used as a contract for APi development and
