I have this Files LoginSteps.java which is the one that manages my cucumber steps for the login

public class LoginSteps extends BaseSteps {

    public final LoginPage loginPage = new LoginPage(driver);


public class BaseSteps {

    public MobileDriver driver = BaseDriver.getDriver();
    public WaitHelpers waitHelpers = new WaitHelpers();


public class LoginPage extends BasePage {

    public LoginPage(MobileDriver driver) {



public class BasePage extends Helpers {

    protected MobileDriver driver = null;
    protected WebDriverWait waiter = null;

    public BasePage(MobileDriver driver) {
        this.driver = driver;
        this.waiter = new WebDriverWait(driver, 60);
        PageFactory.initElements(new AppiumFieldDecorator(driver), this);

    public MobileDriver getDriver() { return this.driver; }

    public WebDriverWait waiter() { return this.waiter; }


I follow this document.

This are my cucumberOptions

        features = "src/test/resources/features",
        glue = { "testproject"},
        monochrome = true,
        tags = "@IOS",
        plugin = {"pretty", "html:target/cucumber/", "json:target/report/cucumber.json",
                "junit:target/report/cucumber.xml, io.testproject.sdk.internal.reporting.extensions.cucumber.CucumberReporter"}



Can you please place it in a try/catch around this and run again to see the exact exception?

Also, please make sure that a simple example such as this one for using the Cucumber plugin works well for you:
