Alright, so I tested separately a bunch of alternatives on the .apk project and none of them worked (it gave me the same error). Here’s what I did:
- added transitive = false notation for espresso dependency
- Updated espresso lib version
Remove the espresso dependency
Downgraded androidx.core dependency
Since Espresso run tests work with the .apk project in Android Studio, I’m starting to assume it is a appium-espresso-driver problem.
If I open the same issue in GitHub’s appium-espresso-driver project, will it have a different analysis approach ?
