The above are just a few of the most commonly used. In addition, it is also possible to automatically acquire evidence while operating automatically with a single click, such as outputting the output of expected value and result value to text. With this, the evidence is easy to understand, and design collapses and bugs can be easily found.

3.2 Test execution

  1. Enable adb for the real or virtual device you want to test

  2. Start appium, write the terminal details before pressing Droid, and press the play button. Appium.png

  3. Stream the source from android studio

… After this, it will move automatically without any clicks! !!

4. In the end

By automating the test, it is possible to shorten the test period (time), reduce the test man-hours, and prevent human error. After all, it's quite interesting to see the screen of the smartphone moving automatically without doing anything. If you have a chance, please try it! !!
