Let us see sample selenium code -

package test;

import java.util.List;

import org.junit.After;
import org.junit.Before;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class BootstrapDropDown {
 
 ChromeDriver driver;
 
 @Before
 public  void setup(){
   
  System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Softwares\\chromedriver_win32\\chromedriver.exe");
  
      driver=new ChromeDriver();

       driver.manage().window().maximize();
  
        // start the application
  
       driver.get("https://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap/bootstrap_dropdowns.asp");
  
 }
 
 @Test
 public void testBootStrap() throws Exception
 {
        // First we have to click on menu item then only dropdown items will display
  
       driver.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='menu1']")).click();
  
  
        // adding 2 seconds wait to avoid Sync issue
  
        Thread.sleep(2000);
  
  
  
        // Dropdown items are coming in <a> tag so below xpath will get all
  
        // elements and findElements will return list of WebElements
  
        List<WebElement> list = driver.findElementsByXPath("//ul[@class='dropdown-menu test']//li/a");
  
  
  
        // We are using enhanced for loop to get the elements
  
        for (WebElement ele : list)
  
        {
  
           // for every elements it will print the name using innerHTML
  
           System.out.println("Values " + ele.getAttribute("innerHTML"));
  
  
  
           // Here we will verify if link (item) is equal to Java Script
  
           if (ele.getAttribute("innerHTML").contains("JavaScript")) {
  
              // if yes then click on link (iteam)
  
              ele.click();
  
  
  
              // break the loop or come out of loop
  
              break;
  
           }
  
        }
  
        // here you can write rest piece of code
  
    }
 
@After
public void tearDown()
{ 
 driver.quit();
}

}
