comment What are the disadvantages of test driven development?
It's a smaller loop than that. You write one test. You write the code to pass that test. You refactor to make the code easy to understand and change. Then you write one more test, then the code to pass both tests, then refactor. One test at a time. You never write a set of predefined tests. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-driven_development

"The predefined tests" is not how TDD works.

comment Where does the “helper” method get placed within a test script?
The remaining parts of the answer (e.g. how to call a method in another class) are more about Java basics than about test automation. I recommend spending a few hours with a book or tutorial about Java basics. Here is a good one from Oracle: docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/index.html Once you know how to declare classes and methods, and how to call methods in other classes and objects, revisit my answer. I'm sure you will find it more helpful then.

comment What arguments would you make to persuade management that UI automation is a bad investment
I want to add another distinction: You're struggling not with automating the UI per se, but with testing end to end through the UI. (In contrast, you could test the UI itself without the back end, with fewer problems and less cost.)
