Selenium WebDriver - Extract/Read Table Data

Following Script will extract data from table:

public class table {

 WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

 public void setup() throws Exception {
  driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(15, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

 public void tearDown() throws Exception {

 public void print_data(){
 //Get number of rows In table.
 int Row_count = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//*[@id='post']/div[1]/table/tbody/tr")).size();
 System.out.println("Number Of Rows = "+Row_count);

 //Get number of columns In table.
 int Col_count = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//*[@id='post']/div[1]/table/tbody/tr[1]/td")).size();
 System.out.println("Number Of Columns = "+Col_count);

 //divided xpath In three parts to pass Row_count and Col_count values.
 String first_part = "//*[@id='post']/div[1]/table/tbody/tr[";
 String second_part = "]/td[";
 String third_part = "]";

 //Used for loop for number of rows.
 for (int i=1; i<=Row_count; i++){
  //Used for loop for number of columns.
  for(int j=1; j<=Col_count; j++){
   //Prepared final xpath of specific cell as per values of i and j.
   String final_xpath = first_part+i+second_part+j+third_part;
   //Will retrieve value from located cell and print It.
   String Table_data = driver.findElement(By.xpath(final_xpath)).getText();
   System.out.print(Table_data +" ");


Console output of above given example will looks like bellow.

Number Of Rows = 3
Number Of Columns = 6
11  12  13  14  15  16  

21  22  23  24  25  26  

31  32  33  34  35  36
