Java8 for iOS Appium testng test

0

I am testing both an iOS and an Android native app with Appium/TestNG and my automation code is cross platform but only supports java8. I build my zip and run my tests successfully on Android, but on iOS, the java version that I am finding is java 12. I searched this forum and saw that previously someone had the opposite issue (needed java > 8) and their workaround was to install the jdk and do the exports. I have that approach working, but am wondering if there a way in the Test Spec to specify java8 (so I don't have to provide it)?

Hi
Try adding the following code instead, since a binary of Java8 is included with the test host:

[code]
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8
java -version
[/code]

Thanks,
Jon

Hi hclmobiletests ,

Those are the standard mode settings, No we currently don't provide a direct mechanism for customer to be able to select java versions.
Using Custom Mode settings is the only way to do that today.(Which you have already verified works)
