How to fix : java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.google.common.base.Throwables.throwIfUnchecked(Ljava/lang/Throwable;)Vmethods.

More info:

I observed this error for android as well as iOS platform.

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.google.common.base.Throwables.throwIfUnchecked(Ljava/lang/Throwable;)V at io.appium.java_client.remote.AppiumCommandExecutor.execute(AppiumCommandExecutor.java:245) at org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver.execute(RemoteWebDriver.java:548) at io.appium.java_client.DefaultGenericMobileDriver.execute(DefaultGenericMobileDriver.java:42) at io.appium.java_client.AppiumDriver.execute(AppiumDriver.java:1) at io.appium.java_client.android.AndroidDriver.execute(AndroidDriver.java:1) at org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver.startSession(RemoteWebDriver.java:212) at org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver.(RemoteWebDriver.java:130) at io.appium.java_client.DefaultGenericMobileDriver.(DefaultGenericMobileDriver.java:38) at io.appium.java_client.AppiumDriver.(AppiumDriver.java:84) at io.appium.java_client.AppiumDriver.(AppiumDriver.java:94)

Any one resolved this? If anyone is also facing same issue, please add your findings in comments.

Solution :

  1. Verify version is appropriate for "guava"
  2. If not Update version from link "guava_versions"
  3. For me it started working again when updated below version under POM.XML
    • guava
    • selenium-android-driver
    • android
    • selenium-remote-driver

I just started to work on Appium From scratch. I installed Appium Server Desktop version on Windows (Appium Version 1.22.0)

Then I created Simple Java code to say deploy an app on Android Phone using below code:

 public static final String APPIUM_SERVER_URL = "";

 DesiredCapabilities dc = new DesiredCapabilities();
 dc.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.PLATFORM_NAME, "Android");
 dc.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.PLATFORM_VERSION, "10");
 dc.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.APP, apk);
 dc.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.DEVICE_NAME, "FA6C60304130");
 dc.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.AUTOMATION_NAME, "UiAutomator2");
 dc.setCapability("autoGrantPermissions", true);

 driver = new AndroidDriver(new URL(APPIUM_SERVER_URL), dc);

I am using 7.5.1 version of Java client:


Not sure, why it is throwing below exception. In the past I used similar code to run my test. Only thing which was changed was Appium Server version and java-client version for Appium. Previously I used 4.1.2 version of java client and not sure which version of server.

Does anyone know what is the problem and how to get rid of it?
