    How i do to search in all the iframes recursively
    Why recursive? Why not iterate a loop?

    What have you tried? Can you post the code you are working with?

    How would anyone test the code? Do you have any sample input for testing?

    Is the structure like a file system on a computer? If so look at the search methods for looking at all the files in a folder that contains other folders.

    bro sry the code is at my pc at job , but please try understand:
    List<WebElement> iframes = driver.findElements(By.tagName("iframe"));
    this will return only the global frames: like in the image in my question(frame1,2,3 and frame) , not the inside ones (frame1.1,frame3.1....).

    Lets make it east forget selenium all together: now a pure java question :
    imagine you have this:
    public class frame{
    List<frame> lst;
    }
    now you have an object of this class frame, question is check the latest frame in this object means :
    frame
    -------------> frame1
    -------------> frame2
    -------------> frame3-------->frame4
    ------>frame5
    you understand? each frame contains another list<frame> and the question is to loop until you find the lastest frame
