How to select the value from the web list in selenium web driver in java?

Example -  We can select the value from the drop down by using 3 methods.
  1. selectByVisibleText - select by the text displayed in drop down
  2. selectByIndex  - select by index of option in drop down
  3. selectByValue  - select by value of option in drop down

Consider below code. Suppose you want to select the first option in the combo box.

<select id="44">
 <option value="1">xyz</option>
 <option value="2">abc</option>
 <option value="3">pqr</option>

Complete Example in Selenium Webdriver in Java

Below Java example shows how you can select the first value from the combo box using selenium webdriver.

//import the required packages and classes.

import java.io.File;
import java.util.NoSuchElementException;
import java.util.Set;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.JavascriptExecutor;

public class OpenGoogle {
public static void main(String [] arg) 

//set the path of the chrome driver exe file

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Selenuim\\chromedriver2.8.exe");

//create the new instance of the chrome browser
WebDriver driver =  new ChromeDriver();


//set the implicit and page load time outs  

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

//navigate to given url

//Maximize the browser window

WebElement e = driver.findElement(By.id("44"));
Select selectElement=new Select(e);
