This practical course offers a robust foundation in scripting tests for Android native and mobile web applications using Appium, the leading open-source framework for mobile test automation. With Android OS capturing over 70% of the global market share for mobile operating systems, Appium stands out as a Selenium extension specifically designed for the mobile domain. During this course, you will gain hands-on experience in testing real Android phones connected to your PC, as well as their emulators. You'll become proficient in utilizing adb (Android Debug Bridge) commands, enabling you to perform a wide range of operations on Android phones. Within a Maven project, you'll seamlessly integrate Appium with JUnit—a widely adopted framework for unit and functional test automation. This integration empowers you to comprehensively test various features of the mobile graphical interface, encompassing gestures and more.
