ExtWebDriver is one of the core packages of Java Test Automation Framework, created by number of developers at FINRA. It is a standard framework used by test automation projects across the organization.

ExtWebDriver was originally created in late 2007 with the invention of JTAF. The popular Selenium RC was adopted by a project to support web application testing, and a group of developers started to make extensions to make test automation development more efficient. Later, when WebDriver was introduced, the Selenium RC extension package was reengineered to leverage the newer WebDriver API and hence created Extensions for WebDriver.

ExtWebDriver project was maintained by developers at FINRA for 5 years and it became an open source project since December 2013.
