Unable to start appium service by AppiumDriverLocalSerivce


#1

Hi Guys,

Now i am trying to use page object model to design my selenium + appium framework. I wan to start the Appium service by AppiumDriverLocalService. The code like below:

    package org.longan.pom.demo;

import io.appium.java_client.service.local.AppiumDriverLocalService;

import org.testng.annotations.AfterClass;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeClass;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class StartAppium {

	private AppiumDriverLocalService service;
	
	@BeforeClass
	public void setUp() {
		service = AppiumDriverLocalService.buildDefaultService();
		service.start();
	}
	
	@Test
	public void getAppiumState() {
		System.out.println(service.isRunning());
	}
	
	@AfterClass
	public void tearDown() {
		service.stop();
	}
}

However, i got some errors like below. i installed appium by npm and of course i installed node.

io.appium.java_client.service.local.InvalidNodeJSInstance: Node.js is not installed

How are you running these tests? If it’s from the command line, you need to add node to your path. You can check if node is in your path by typing ‘which node’ in a terminal (there are plenty of other ways, this one is quickest & easiest IMHO). Here are some instructions for adding to the path on 10.10, which is the latest OS X version (If you are using an earlier version, you may need to google search for more instructions):

http://coolestguidesontheplanet.com/add-shell-path-osx/

But perhaps you are running these tests in an IDE. You may need to explicitly tell your IDE to use the $PATH environment variable. For example, here are some instructions for Eclipse:

http://help.eclipse.org/mars/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.user%2Fconcepts%2Fcpathvars.htm

Once again, you may need to use google search if your IDE is not Eclipse.

Hopefully one of these will help you.


#3

@wreed Thanks. Like you said, i am using Eclipse to run these tests. i am going to take a look the instructions for eclipse.


#4

And As you can see in attachment, once i got the correct path, can i just type code like below ?

service = AppiumDriverLocalService.buildDefaultService();
service.start();
iosDriver = new IOSDriver<MobileElement>(service.getUrl(), capabilities);

No more need to specify the URL like

new IOSDriver<MobileElement>(new URL("http://127.0.0.1:4723/wd/hub"), capabilities);

Am i right ?


#5

No, we are just trying to fix this error:

Once you have the path set in Eclipse you should be able to start Appium properly. You’ll probably always have to set the URL.


#6

Thanks @wreed, i am trying to reference below issue to start appium by programmatically and set AppiumDriverLocalService.


#7

One more thing please, i still don’t understand why we need AppiumDriverLocalService ? When should we use this object ?


#8

@suroit

The thread you are following is JAVA programming way to start appium server. It is bit complex and more prone to errors …

But AppiumDriverLocalService is a new feature implemented by appium guys in java client 3.2 to start appium server using appium library itself instead of using JAVA.

so wreed is basically saying when you use this new feature it is must to have node.js to be installed on u r system.
same error you are getting.

So first install node.js on your system then you can try with below code. It works fine on android for me.

In this way appium library just wants to know where is node.exe in u r system and where is appium.js file in ur system. appium.js file will be inside the appium server you downloaded and node.exe will be in programfiles like other installed programs.

AppiumDriverLocalService service = AppiumDriverLocalService
.buildService(new AppiumServiceBuilder()
.usingDriverExecutable(new File(“C:/Program Files/nodejs/node.exe”))
.withAppiumJS(new File(“C:/Users/Desktop/android/AppiumForWindows-1.3.4.1/Appium/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js”))
.withLogFile(new File(“C:/Users/amit.ja/AppiumServerLogs.txt”))
.withIPAddress(“127.0.0.1”)
.usingPort(4725));
service.start();

Hope this Helps !!!

Thanks @amitjaincoer191. i have successful to start the Appium service by AppiumDriverLocalService on MAC. The code lists as below:

public class StartAppium {

	private IOSDriver<MobileElement> iosDriver;
	private AppiumDriverLocalService service;

	@BeforeClass
	public void setUp() throws Exception {

		service = AppiumDriverLocalService
				.buildService(new AppiumServiceBuilder()
						.usingDriverExecutable(new File("/usr/local/bin/node"))
						.withAppiumJS(
								new File(
										"/usr/local/lib/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js"))
						.withIPAddress("127.0.0.1").usingPort(4723));

		service.start();

		DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.iphone();
		capabilities.setCapability("platformName", "IOS");
		capabilities.setCapability("deviceName", "iPhone Simulator");
		capabilities.setCapability("platformVersion", "9.0");
		capabilities.setCapability("browserName", "Safari");

		iosDriver = new IOSDriver<MobileElement>(service.getUrl(), capabilities);
		iosDriver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
	}

	@Test
	public void getAppiumStatus() {
		iosDriver.navigate().to("http://www.baidu.com");
		iosDriver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
		iosDriver.findElementByName("wd").sendKeys("appium desired capability");
		iosDriver.findElement(By.name("wd")).clear();
	}

	@AfterClass
	public void tearDown() {
		iosDriver.quit();
		service.stop();
	}
}

Another question on this, what about if i want to assign a nodeConfig file to the appium server ?

I have tried, but i have no idea which method should i use…

Would you please help to give me some example or some hints ?

Thanks a lot


#11

Hi guys,

Do you have any idea on how to assign nodeconfig file to appium by AppiumDriverLocalService ?

@amitjaincoer191,@wreed

Thanks


#12

Thanks guys, i have solved this issue. i checked with API and found

withArgument(GeneralServerFlag.CONFIGURATION_FILE, "")

can assign a configuration file.

Appreciate for your help on this topic.


#13

@suroit

Are u using grid nodeconfig.json file using this option ?

If yes Can u tell me one more thing …

So for grid you used this code multiple times to register a node to a running grid HUB ???


#14

Hi @amitjaincoer191,

Yes, i register appium as a node to Selenium Grid. The grid is the HUB.

But i don’t try it multiple times.

Is there anything wrong on this ?


#15

@suroit and @amitjaincoer191,

I got below error when I try with the @suroit code. As per the console error, it is saying ideviceinstaller is not installed on mac. But I have installed and it is alreary exist in my mac. Could u please help me to get rid of this errors.

Just having ideviceinstaller on the Mac doesn’t mean it shows on your $PATH. Try this command:
which ideviceinstaller

That will tell you if it’s on your $PATH. If it’s not, here is a tutorial on adding to the $PATH on OS X:

There are many more like it a mere google search away.

Hello friend,

Please use the way I explained in method-1 in my post, it will help you.

Hi

I am getting below error while starting appium server using above method.
It would be great, if you can help to solve this issue.

I am using 1.4.16 appium version on Mac

Code i have written is
private void startAppiumServer(final Client client, final String nodeConfigFilePath) throws InterruptedException {
Logger.info(“Starting appium server”);

	executorService = Executors.newSingleThreadExecutor();
	executorService.execute(new Runnable() {
		public void run() {
			try {
				AppiumDriverLocalService driverLocalService = AppiumDriverLocalService
						.buildService(new AppiumServiceBuilder()
								.withAppiumJS(new File("/usr/local/lib/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js"))
