Troubleshooting Appium Java JUnit Web Application Tests in AWS Device Farm

The following topic lists error messages that occur during the upload of Appium Java JUnit Web application tests and recommends workarounds to resolve each error.

APPIUM_WEB_JAVA_JUNIT_TEST_PACKAGE_UNZIP_FAILED

If you see the following message, follow these steps to fix the issue.

Warning

We could not open your test ZIP file. Please verify that the file is valid and try again.

Make sure that you can unzip the test package without errors. In the following example, the package's name is zip-with-dependencies.zip.

  1. Copy your test package to your working directory, and then run the following command:

    Copy
    $ unzip zip-with-dependencies.zip
  2. After you successfully unzip the package, you can find the working directory tree structure by running the following command:

    Copy
    $ tree .

    A valid Appium Java JUnit package should produce output like the following:

    Copy
    . |— acme-android-appium-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar (this is the JAR containing everything built from the ./src/main directory) |— acme-android-appium-1.0-SNAPSHOT-tests.jar (this is the JAR containing everything built from the ./src/test directory) |— zip-with-dependencies.zip (this .zip file contains all of the items) `— dependency-jars (this is the directory that contains all of your dependencies, built as JAR files) |— com.some-dependency.bar-4.1.jar |— com.another-dependency.thing-1.0.jar |— joda-time-2.7.jar `— log4j-1.2.14.jar

    For more information, see Appium Java JUnit.

APPIUM_WEB_JAVA_JUNIT_TEST_PACKAGE_DEPENDENCY_DIR_MISSING

If you see the following message, follow these steps to fix the issue.

Warning

We could not find the dependency-jars directory inside your test package. Please unzip your test package, verify that the dependency-jars directory is inside the package, and try again.

In the following example, the package's name is zip-with-dependencies.zip.

  1. Copy your test package to your working directory, and then run the following command:

    Copy
    $ unzip zip-with-dependencies.zip
  2. After you successfully unzip the package, you can find the working directory tree structure by running the following command:

    Copy
    $ tree .

    If the Appium Java JUnit package is valid, you will find the dependency-jars directory inside the working directory:

    Copy
    . |— acme-android-appium-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar (this is the JAR containing everything built from the ./src/main directory) |— acme-android-appium-1.0-SNAPSHOT-tests.jar (this is the JAR containing everything built from the ./src/test directory) |— zip-with-dependencies.zip (this .zip file contains all of the items) `— dependency-jars (this is the directory that contains all of your dependencies, built as JAR files) |— com.some-dependency.bar-4.1.jar |— com.another-dependency.thing-1.0.jar |— joda-time-2.7.jar `— log4j-1.2.14.jar

    If the Appium Java JUnit package is valid, you will find the JUnit dependency file that is similar to the jar file junit-4.10.jar in our example. The name should consist of the keyword junit and its version number, which in this example is 4.10.

    For more information, see Appium Java JUnit.

APPIUM_WEB_JAVA_JUNIT_TEST_PACKAGE_INVALID_JUNIT_VERSION

If you see the following message, follow these steps to fix the issue.

  1. Copy your test package to your working directory, and then run the following command:

    Copy
    $ unzip zip-with-dependencies.zip
  2. After you successfully unzip the package, you can find the working directory tree structure by running the following command:

    Copy
    $ tree .

    You should find a JUnit dependency file like junit-4.10.jar in our example and its version number, which in our example is 4.10:

    Copy
    . |— acme-android-appium-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar (this is the JAR containing everything built from the ./src/main directory) |— acme-android-appium-1.0-SNAPSHOT-tests.jar (this is the JAR containing everything built from the ./src/test directory) |— zip-with-dependencies.zip (this .zip file contains all of the items) `— dependency-jars (this is the directory that contains all of your dependencies, built as JAR files) |— junit-4.10.jar |— com.some-dependency.bar-4.1.jar |— com.another-dependency.thing-1.0.jar |— joda-time-2.7.jar `— log4j-1.2.14.jar

    Note
