Here is a Video Tutorial:

Configuring your Appium Studio for Eclipse  project will cause the following changes:

  1. All required .jar files will be accessible through a classpath container that is created.
  2. A BaseTest class that provides basic framework services will be created.
  3. Both an AndroidDemoTest and IOSDemoTest will be created and added.
  4. Information about the cloud that was used will be populated into cloud.properties files.
  5. Simple integration with CI environments such as Jenkins can be made using an added build.gradle file.

To apply your configuration:

  1. Create a new Java project (or use an existing one).
  2. Select “Configuration” then ”SeeTest TestNG Nature” or “SeeTestJUnit Nature” in the right-click drop-down menu of your Java project.

Configuring TestNG

After configuration, your project should look as shown below:


Configuration result

Right click on ‘testng.xml’ to verify your environment configuration (through TestNG) and execute it. This will runAndroidDemoTest and IOSDemoTest in parallel.

Verifying & Execution

NOTE:

The cloud.properties files contain the necessary information for server connection during runtime.

This is a standard Java properties file:

#Mon Sep 04 12:59:25 IDT 2017

url=https\\://cloud.seetest.io:443

accessKey=eyc..dfQ.eyJ..In0.q2k9..O6zs

project=Project I

username=user1

The above cloud.properties file executes here under the username “user1”.

Authentication is performed through access key and Current access keys are retrieved automatically, but if credentials are changed or if you need a new one created, then the file must be updated to execute the tests further.

More information on access keys can be found here.

Our upcoming tutorial will guide you more on Installing applications in Appium Studio for Eclipse.
