List<WebElement> list = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//*[@href]"));

But the output i need is like this:- , aa , ss

Answer Source

Try this -- Use getText() and modified xpath to include hrefs inside the div with class hello. Assuming the particular div is the unique one with the class name.

List<WebElement> list = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//div[@class='hello']//a[@href]"));
            for (WebElement e : list) {
                String link = e.getAttribute("href");
                System.out.println(e.getTagName() + "=" + link + " , " + e.getText());
