Class’s non-default constructor is not getting called

Hi Team,

I was trying to implement the DriverScript-class as mentioned in the below-link, but, it seems that the non-default DriverScript()-constructor is not getting called. As a result all the codes (shown below) are not getting executed. As a result I’m getting a “NullPointerException” whenever referring the “method” (of type Method[]) variable afterwards in the class.


public DriverScript() throws NoSuchMethodException, SecurityException {
        actionKeywords = new ActionKeywords();
        method = actionKeywords.getClass().getMethods();

Reference Link:


Here is my DriverScript.class for reference:

package executionEngine;

import java.lang.reflect.Method;
import config.ActionKeywords;
import utility.ExcelUtils;

public class DriverScript {

public static ActionKeywords actKeyObj;
public static String stepActionKey;
public static Method method[];

public DriverScript() throws NoSuchMethodException, SecurityException {
actKeyObj = new ActionKeywords();
method = actKeyObj.getClass().getMethods();

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
String spreadSheetPath = “C:\\Users\\demo\\Desktop\\Workspace\\Mydemo2\\src\\dataEngine\\DataEngine.xlsx”;
ExcelUtils.setExcelFile(spreadSheetPath, “Test Steps”);
for(int row=1; row<9; row++) {
stepActionKey = ExcelUtils.getCellData(row, 3);

private static void execute_Step() throws Exception {
for(int i=0; i<method.length; i++) {
if(method[i].getName().equals(stepActionKey)) {
