This repo showcases how to integrate Java / TestNG test for Native apps, using Appium with Applitools and execute on Genymotion Cloud

About the tests

  • The Test ( assumes the following:
    • There are 2 instances of the test running in parallel
    • The port numbers, udid are hard-coded in the test to make the demo easier. But this can / should be externalized for better flexibility / scaling
    • The below instructions (for Genymotion devices) assumes this hard-coded setup. The test infrastructure code should be able to make this dynamic at runtime

Applitools Setup

Genymotion Devices Setup

  • Sign up on Genymotion Cloud to create an account

  • Setup Genymotion command line tool - gmsaas using the instructions here -, or

  • To check if you are connected to Genymotion Cloud, run

    $ gmsaas auth whoami

    The above should show the username / email of your Genymotion Cloud account

  • See list of devices available devices in Genymotion Cloud:

    $ gmsaas recipes list | grep "Pixel 3"

    For this demo, I am going to use Google Pixel 3 devices, so I can narrow the search using the below command:

    $ gmsaas recipes list | grep "Pixel 3"

    143eb44a-1d3a-4f27-bcac-3c40124e2836  Google Pixel 3         9.0        1080 x 2160 dpi 420  genymotion
    e5008049-8394-40fc-b7f8-87fa9f1c305f  Google Pixel 3 XL      9.0        1440 x 2960 dpi 560  genymotion
  • Start 2 devices

    gmsaas instances start 143eb44a-1d3a-4f27-bcac-3c40124e2836 pixel3
    gmsaas instances start e5008049-8394-40fc-b7f8-87fa9f1c305f pixel3xl

    NOTE: The above commands will start a new instance of the devices in Genymotion Cloud. When you see the started devices, make note of the devices' udid. Example:

    $ gmsaas instances list
    UUID                                  NAME      ADB SERIAL      STATE
    ------------------------------------  --------  --------------  -------
    8e70fac5-0dc5-449c-8458-6af6bd09e201  pixel3         ONLINE
    3553cc0c-c6cd-48be-99f6-b56fe86a7cb1  pixel3xl         ONLINE

    NOTE: The UDIDs listed above will keep changing. So do not copy / paste directly.

  • You can also see the started instances in Genymotion Cloud Ui -

  • Establish adb connection with the started instances

    $ gmsaas instances adbconnect --adb-serial-port 5554 <udid1>
    $ gmsaas instances adbconnect --adb-serial-port 5556 <udid2>
  • You will now see the ADB serial port updated for the device instances.

    $ gmsaas instances list
    UUID                                  NAME      ADB SERIAL      STATE
    ------------------------------------  --------  --------------  -------
    <udid1>                               pixel3    localhost:5554  ONLINE
    <udid2>                               pixel3xl  localhost:5556  ONLINE
  • You will now be able to see these Genymotion Cloud virtual devices as a local device

    $ adb devices
    List of devices attached
    localhost:5554	device
    localhost:5556	device 

Run the Tests

  • From command line, start Appium server using the command shown below:

    $ appium -p 4723 &
  • You can now run the test in parallel and see the test execute in Genymotion Cloud, and see the Visual Testing results in the Applitools Test Manager Dashboard

You can’t perform that action at this time.
