Find text in table without table iteration

Normally we follow the approach of iterating table, find the required text and perform some operation on same row. This approach is fast for small table but when it comes to very large table iteration will be slow enough.

Instead without iterating the table find the text using xpath and perform operation on same row.

Let take an example:









From above table we want 'Travel' time (column = 7) of particular train from 'Train No' (column=1).

String travelTime = driver.findElement(
By.xpath("//table[@id='trainInfo']/tbody/tr/td[text()='19215']/../td[7]")).getText();

OUTPUT:
Travel time: 15.35

[ERROR]How to resolve "Multiple annotations found at this line" in pom.xml file?

Today while creating new project I came across below error message in POM.xml file after deleting Junit dependencies and including TestNG dependencies and worried how to solve. Luckily I found solution from my preview project.

Multiple annotations found at this line:
- ArtifactTransferException: Failure to transfer org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient:jar:
4.5.1 from http://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2 was cached in the local repository, resolution 
will not be reattempted until the update interval of central has elapsed or updates are forced. 
Original error: Could not transfer artifact org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient:jar:4.5.1 from/to 
central (http://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2): connection timed out to http://
repo.maven.apache.org/maven2/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpclient/4.5.1/httpclient-4.5.1.jar
- ArtifactTransferException: Failure to transfer org.apache.httpcomponents:httpcore:jar:

Original error: Could not transfer artifact org.apache.httpcomponents:httpcore:jar:4.4.3 from/to

error: Could not transfer artifact commons-logging:commons-logging:jar:1.2 from/to central (http://
repo.maven.apache.org/maven2): connection timed out to http://repo.maven.apache.org/
maven2/commons-logging/commons-logging/1.2/commons-logging-1.2.jar

SOLUTION:
Just include below "httpclient" dependencies solved my problem.
<dependency>
<groupId>org.apache.httpcomponents</groupId>
<artifactId>httpclient</artifactId>
<version>4.3.4</version>
</dependency>
