I have tried implementing the swipe method for android devices, but this method is not working in Appium 1.3.4. Below is the code I have written:

public void swipe() {
    JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
    HashMap < String, Double > swipeObject = new HashMap < String, Double > ();
    swipeObject.put("startX", 0.95);
    swipeObject.put("startY", 0.5);
    swipeObject.put("endX", 0.05);
    swipeObject.put("endY", 0.5);
    swipeObject.put("duration", 1.0);
    js.executeScript("emulator: swipe", swipeObject);

And call the swipe() in required place in that same class. It throws error message like this:

org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Not yet implemented. Please help us: http://appium.io/get-involved.html (WARNING: The server did not provide any stacktrace information) Command duration or timeout: 7 milliseconds

Please anyone help me on this issue. Thanks

You should migrate action methods to TouchAction class, in case of swipe, try this:

def swipe(start_x, start_y, end_x, end_y)
    Appium::TouchAction.new.press(x: start_x, y: start_y).wait(1000).move_to(x:end_x, y:end_y).wait(500).release(x: end_x, y: end_y).perform

Check API in here: http://appium.github.io/java-client/io/appium/java_client/TouchAction.html

Instead of coordinated you can also pass elements.
