Best Practices for Appium-Based Mobile App Testing

Environment Setup

– Keep Appium and its dependencies up to date to benefit from the latest features and bug fixes.

Test Script Development

– Implement POM to create a clean separation between the test code and the UI elements, improving maintainability and readability.

Test Case Management

Categorize test cases (e.g., smoke, regression, functional) to run relevant tests based on the context

Appium Server Management

– Start and stop the Appium server programmatically within your test suite to ensure a fresh session for each test run.

Test Execution

– Ensure proper cleanup (e.g., closing apps, clearing data) after each test to prevent side effects between tests.
