When we want to write or run hundreds of test cases, we need to manage those with minimum effort. We can use JSON or XML files to read and edit data or parameters. use this method and you will see, how your management process more easily.

Now we add some parameters to the testng.xml file and we use these parameters at all classes.

For example; I run and write many test cases and I always use driver path, driver type, and base URL.
