package webdriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

public class Gmail {

 * @param args
public static void main(String[] args) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    WebDriver driver=new FirefoxDriver();
    driver.findElement(By.id("Email")).sendKeys("[email protected]");



I got the following error. Please help me

It means that Selenium was not able to find the locator that you have mentioned. Since the issue is on locator with id "Next", it is throwing exception at this point.

I just checked and the locator for this on Gmail page should be with id "next" because this is what the HTML shows

<input id="next" class="rc-button rc-button-submit" type="submit" value="Next" name="signIn"/>

Use "next" in the code for the id field and it should work.

Also I would recommend -try doing a little bit more of research before posting a question. This is one of the most basic issues faced with Selenium and you will have go your answer if you would've researched a bit- on the web or on this site as well
