Appium Parallel Execution for Android and iOS on Real Devices
Add the below dependencies in your pom.xml
<dependency> <groupId>com.github.saikrishna321</groupId> <artifactId>AppiumTestDistribution</artifactId> <version>5.0.0</version> </dependency>
<repositories> <repository> <id>jitpack.io</id> <url>https://jitpack.io</url> </repository> </repositories>
Clone the project (https://github.com/saikrishna321/PageObjectPatternAppium) If your application is cross-platform and you end up building a PageObjectPattern Framework. Then you can also run those tests across Android and iOS devices connected to the same Mac OSX Host.
(e.g. If you have 3 Android and 3 iOS devices connected to the same machine, you will be able to execute these test parallel on both platforms)
##Credits Thanks to * @thote and @jaydeepc for the motivation. * @SrinivasanTarget for contributing on iOS parallel. * @temyers for letting us use the cucumber-jvm-parallel-plugin(https://github.com/temyers/cucumber-jvm-parallel-plugin) as part of framework which helps generating a Cucumber JUnit or TestNG runner for each feature file.
Your should see report file generated as ExtentReport.html under the target folder.
