Session - Robust and reliable Android app automation with Espresso

Jan 10 5-5:55 PM (EST)

Espresso is a framework introduced by Google that provides reliable and fast automation for Android apps. We will start with setup and configuration of espresso with Android Studio. We will use the standard tooling and create a test and execute it on a local emulator and remote firebase test lab from within the IDE. Then, we will walk through locators, actions and assertions with a more complicated test. Finally the session demonstrates the synchronization of espresso through a network rule. Unlike traditional black box testing frameworks, espresso knows about the internal state of the app, system UI threads and can synchronize waiters appropriately, giving unprecedented control and accuracy for test steps.
