Working with Android Studio means that we need to use gradle projects, however it might happen that some of our old projects were made in pure Java and with Maven, this is actually quite likely.
Converting a project from one format to another is though quite easy to be done through the command line and the
built init plugin.
In particular this tool allows us to convert not just from Maven but also from grails, java and scala.
Anyway, to move from Maven to gradle we just need to:
gradle init --type pom
At this point we can import the project into Android Studio quite easily.
Previously I used the jar libraries for the Selenium/Selendroid project to work fine, however the method is not really ideal. Project dependencies should be imported automatically with a dependency sistem of some sort. Here I am going to add Maven to the project and manage the dependenices through it. Here I am going to add selenium-java and selendroid-standalone, but this is of course valid for any other library.
