Hi, got solution. here is the code.

 package executionEngine;
import config.ActionKeywords;
 import utility.ExcelUtils;
 import java.lang.reflect.*;
public class DriverScript {
public static ActionKeywords actionKeywords;
 public static String sActionKeyword;
//This is reflection class object, declared as 'public static'
 //So that it can be used outside the scope of main[] method
public static Method method[];
//Here we are instantiating a new object of class 'ActionKeywords'
public DriverScript() throws NoSuchMethodException, SecurityException{
 actionKeywords = new ActionKeywords();
//This will load all the methods of the class 'ActionKeywords' in it.
 //It will be like array of method, use the break point here and do the watch
method =actionKeywords.getClass().getMethods();
public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
 // Declaring the path of the Excel file with the name of the Excel file
String sPath = "D://WorkspaceOne//KeyWordFramework//src//dataEngine//DataEngine.xlsx";
// Here we are passing the Excel path and SheetName as arguments to connect with Excel file
ExcelUtils.setExcelFile(sPath, "Test Steps");
DriverScript startEngine = new DriverScript();
private void execute_TestCase() throws Exception {
for (int iRow=1;iRow<=7;iRow++){
 //Storing the value of excel cell in sActionKeyword string variable
 sActionKeyword = ExcelUtils.getCellData(iRow, 3);
//This method contains the code to perform some action
 //As it is completely different set of logic, which revolves around the action only,
 //It makes sense to keep it separate from the main driver script
 //This is to execute test step (Action)
 private static void execute_Actions() throws Exception {
 //This is a loop which will run for the number of actions in the Action Keyword class
 //method variable contain all the method and method.length returns the total number of methods
 //int totalmethods=method.length;
for(int i = 0;i < method.length;i++){
//This is now comparing the method name with the ActionKeyword value got from excel
 //In case of match found, it will execute the matched method
 //Once any method is executed, this break statement will take the flow outside of for loop
