I wanted to fill a web form automatically. I used selenium ide to create a script which ENDS with a command that searches for the specified text in the webpage.
I wanted to take action based on this TEXT. If text = congratulations, then send an e-mail to some address. If not, then click ok button. I don't think the selenium
IDE can do this If-else logic and send mail on its own.

So, i thought of using java code to "run" this selenium html script, find out if the desired text was found or not - if yes then send mail; otherwise the java code will
"click" the ok button. Does this approach make sense ? Is it possible to do this using java and some kind of selenium java api ?
