@Hassan_Radi
@Arvind_Patel

I am able to run my tests in parallel on three devices but I see failures due to Explicit and Implicit wait not working on Grid, any solution for that??


#167

Hello all,
Driver creation always failed for me when I try to run a test

I’m using Ruby Appium_lib 9.4.2, Selenium server 3.4.0 and Appium 1.6.4

Here is the error code I got
C:/Ruby22-x64/lib/ruby/gems/2.2.0/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.4.0/lib/selenium/webdriver/remote/response.rb:72:inassert_ok’: status code 500 (Selenium::WebDriver::Error::ServerError)`

Here is the test script

require 'appium_lib'

desired_caps = {
  caps:       {
platformName: 'Android',
deviceName: 'Galaxy A5 (2017)',
appPackage: 'com.samsung.android.messaging',
appActivity: 'com.android.mms.ui.ConversationComposer'
  },
  appium_lib: {
server_url: 'http://192.168.43.78:4444/wd/hub'
  }
}

driver = Appium::Driver.new(desired_caps)
driver.start_driver()
driver.find_element(:xpath, "some_button_xpath").click();
driver.driver_quit

The command I use to for Grid
java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.4.0.jar -role hub

The appium json config file

`{
"capabilities": [{
    "browserName": "Galaxy A5 (2017)",
    "version": "6.0.1",
    "platform": "Android",
    "maxInstances": 1

    "register": true,
    "registerCycle": 5000,
    "hubPort": 4444,
    "hubHost": "127.0.0.1"
}

}`

and the log from appium server

plz share the @BeforeTest part


#169

How did u resolve ur problem… plz let me know.


#170

see this video https://youtu.be/vXpskMkytD8


#171

Hi @rgonalo,

How would i get device name & UDID for android emulator, can u plz provide an example.


#172

Hi @Manish093, to get the serial number of each connected Android device or emulator execute:

$ adb devices

List of devices attached
emulator-5554 device

In this case, emulator-5554 is the emulator serial number.


#173

What does that /wb/hub in the end of server url will do?
