First Experience

package pers.lele;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;


public class FirstAppium {
    public static AndroidDriver<WebElement> androidDriver;

    public  static  void  main (String[] args)  throws MalformedURLException, InterruptedException {
         //1. Create a configuration object 
        DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
         //2. Add a configuration 
        //deviceName: the tested device 
        desiredCapabilities.setCapability( "deviceName" , "" );
        desiredCapabilities.setCapability( "platformName" , "Android" );
         //appPackage: Tested App 
         //automationName:uiautomator2 solves the problem that the input box cannot input data //desiredCapabilities.setCapability("automationName"," 
        //appActivity: Test App startup entry 

        //3. Create a driver 
        //The first parameter: Appium communication address 
        //The second parameter: Configuration object 
        androidDriver = new AndroidDriver<WebElement>( new URL( " " ),desiredCapabilities);


    public  static  void  searchTest ()  throws InterruptedException {
         //Wait for elements to be loaded 
        Thread.sleep( 1000 * 10 );
         //1. Find the search button and click 
         //2. Find the search box and enter the passerby king 

        // affirmations:

App element positioning

  • ID : The unique identifier of the control, but a page may have multiple identical ids due to the laxness of the app project developer

element waiting

  • forced to wait


  • implicit wait


  • Display Wait: Set the wait time for an element

WebDriverWait webDriverWait = new WebDriverWait(androidDriver,10);
WebElement webElement = webDriverWait.until(new ExpectedCondition<WebElement>() {
       public WebElement apply(@NullableDecl WebDriver webDriver) {

Gesture Operation – Swipe

TouchAction touchAction = new TouchAction(androidDriver);
   PointOption startPoint = PointOption.point(476, 1326);
   PointOption endPoint = PointOption.point(414, 234);
   Duration duration = Duration.ofMillis(500);
   WaitOptions options = WaitOptions.waitOptions(duration);;
