There is more in Appium than you think


Via the session speaker will introduce how he created and contributed Backdoor feature to Appium Android. Also, he will introduce how his team performs persona-based testing with Appium which involves multiple log-ins at the same time.

Have you been in a situation when some cases are impossible to test because Appium doesn’t have support? Appium is improving continuously and release of espresso-driver is an example of this.

Espresso driver opens up possibilities of white-box testing using Appium. One of which is the ability to call platform methods on elements via backdoor without modifying Application under test. What it means is, if the Android platform supports some actions or properties on an element, then Appium will support it out of the box.

For an automation engineer, that’s a very powerful addition. Rajdeep was fortunate enough to work on this feature and would like to showcase what are the various tricky cases where this feature can be applied. There will be real examples shown with a sample android app. Speaker will also introduce how his team do persona based testing with Appium which involves multiple log-ins at same time.

Комментарий программного комитета:

Рассказ Раждипа будет полезен тем, кто уже имеет опыт с Appium и понимает его ограничения — он вживую покажет, как скрещивать бульдога (Appium) c носорогом (Espresso)
