Is there even an option with Selenium WebDriver to automate the testing which involves the drag & drop functionality using Selenium WebDriver in java?

For working with pages where you have to drag and drop something, you should use actions method.

// Instantiating an object of action class
Actions builder = new Actions(driver);

builder.keyDown(Keys.CONTROL)
   .click(someElement)
   .click(someOtherElement)
   .keyUp(Keys.CONTROL);

// Then get the action:
Action selectMultiple = builder.build();

// And execute it:
selectMultiple.perform();   

Or try implementing it with this code

Actions builder = new Actions(driver);

Action dragAndDrop = builder.clickAndHold(someElement)
   .moveToElement(otherElement)
   .release(otherElement)
   .build();

dragAndDrop.perform();
