Title: Using Selenium jar files in Qftest
Hi Uma,
I only know of two cases where you need external JAR files (exluding the start of your SUT):
that is when using Jython or Groovy scripts and importing specific classes like
com.thoughtworks.selenium import * in a QF-Test Server script
Please see QF-Test manual (PDF) or HTML manual for an explanation on where to place such JARs:

37.2 The plugin directory

Jython and Groovy can also be used to access Java classes and methods beyond the
scope of QF-Test by simply importing such classes, e.g.

from java.util import Date
from java.text import SimpleDateFormat

print SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").format(Date())

Example 37.1: Accessing Java classes from Jython

The classes available for import are those on the CLASSPATH during startup of QFTest
or the SUT respectively, all classes of the standard Java API and QF-Test’s own
classes. For the SUT things also depend on the ClassLoader concept in use. WebStart
and Eclipse/RCP in particular make it difficult to import classes directly from the SUT.

Additionally, there are plugin directories into which you can simply drop a jar file to
make it available to scripts. By default, the main plugin directory is called plugin
surprise here) and is located under QF-Test’s root directory qftest

This location can be overriden with the command line argument -plugindir <directory>.
Jar files in the main plugin directory are available to both Server script and SUT script
nodes. To make a jar available solely to Server scripts or solely to SUT scripts, drop it in
the respective sub-directory called qftest or sut instead.

Best regards,
