How to switch tabs using Selenium WebDriver with Java

0 votes
Using Selenium WebDriver with JAVA. I am trying to automate a functionality where I have to open a new tab do some operations there and come back to previous tab (Parent). I used switch handle but it's not working. And one strange thing the two tabs are having same window handle due to which I am not able to switch between tabs.

However when I am trying with different Firefox windows it works, but for tab it's not working.

Please help me. How can I switch tabs. OR how can I switch tabs without using window handle as window handle is same of both tabs in my case.

psdbComponent.clickDocumentLink();
    ArrayList<String> tabs2 = new ArrayList<String> (driver.getWindowHandles());
    driver.switchTo().window(tabs2.get(1));
    driver.close();
    driver.switchTo().window(tabs2.get(0));

This code perfectly worked for me. Try it out. You always need to switch your driver to a new tab, before you want to do something on a new tab.
