The element that you are trying to locate has invalid xpath. Can you recheck the xpath of the element and use the correct one. Try firebug to find the xpath. Here is the tutorial

Thanks virender for your reply.

The reason this error is coming is : there is no login page.

According to the code for cucumber tutorial, first my account button should be clicked, the login credentials should be entered and then after successful login you should logout.

Now If I run selenium test this functionality is working. But with test runner class……. it is just opening the demo website in browser, not clicking on it.
And it is directly going to the logout scenario. That y the error is there, as there is no logout button on the browser.

So, my problem is why it is not entering into Given scenario.

It seems that you are missing a step in step definition file. Can you please do two things
– Share the feature file and the step definitions
– Point me to the tutorial URL from where you have picked this up on ToolsQA. I will try to reproduce it.
