Espresso UI testing doesn't recognize onView()

I have spent all day setting up Junit4 instrumentation tests with Espresso, but just can't seem to get that final step. No matter what I do it won't recognize the

onView()
method. I have tried multiple SDK/support-lib versions and so far nothing. I have gone through all the google setup guides and many stackoverflow posts, turning here as my last hope.

Gradle version :
com.android.tools.build:gradle:1.5.0


Gradle file:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

android {
compileSdkVersion 23
buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"
useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy'

defaultConfig {
applicationId "lv.my.android"
minSdkVersion 9
targetSdkVersion 22
testApplicationId "lv.my.android.tests"
testInstrumentationRunner "android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"
}

packagingOptions {
exclude 'LICENSE.txt'
exclude 'META-INF/DEPENDENCIES'
exclude 'META-INF/LICENSE'
exclude 'META-INF/NOTICE'
}

compileOptions {
sourceCompatibility = 'VERSION_1_7'
targetCompatibility = 'VERSION_1_7'
}

signingConfigs {
beta {
storeFile file("beta.keystore")
storePassword "betabuild"
keyAlias "key"
keyPassword "betabuild"
}
release
}

buildTypes {
debug {
debuggable true
applicationIdSuffix '.debug'
versionNameSuffix '-DEV'
minifyEnabled false
}

beta {
debuggable true
applicationIdSuffix '.beta'
versionNameSuffix '-BETA'
signingConfig signingConfigs.beta
minifyEnabled false
}

release {
minifyEnabled false
}
}
}

androidTestCompile'com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.1'
testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
testCompile "org.mockito:mockito-core:1.9.5"
}


My test (located in
src/androidTest/java/lv/my/test
)

package lv.my.test;

import android.support.test.rule.ActivityTestRule;
import android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnit4;
import android.test.suitebuilder.annotation.LargeTest;
import lv.my.android.activities.LoginActivity;

import org.junit.Before;
import org.junit.Rule;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.junit.runner.RunWith;

@RunWith(AndroidJUnit4.class)
@LargeTest
public class LoginActivityTest {

private String mStringToBetyped;

@Rule
public ActivityTestRule<LoginActivity> mActivityRule = new ActivityTestRule<>(LoginActivity.class);

@Before
public void initValidString() {

}

@Test
public void changeText_sameActivity() {
// onView not recognized here

}
}


PS. I use roboguice could that be the issue?

Answer

You should either use a static import:

import static android.support.test.espresso.Espresso.onView;

or

import android.support.test.espresso.Espresso;

and call it in the following way

Espresso.onView()
