The following code should work with Firefox, Chrome and IE Web Drivers.

FirefoxDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();


File file = null;

try {

    file = new File(YourClass.class.getClassLoader().getResource("file.txt").toURI());

} catch (URISyntaxException e) {




WebElement browseButton = driver.findElement("myfile"));


I hope this helps!
