Automated GUI testing on Eclipse 3.6 with WindowTester 6.0

Postby lembas » Wed Mar 23, 2011 7:35 am

We want to automate the GUI testing on Eclipse 3.6 with WindowTester 6.0.
We can use Ant or any command using terminal.
Is it possible? If so, we can use this in Jenkins and do nightly tests.

We are trying to do the same thing, but it seems complicated and documentation seems to be old (WindowTester says that Eclipse Testing Framework should be used).
I found some links:

http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-PDEJUnitAntAutomation/index.html

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/viewvc.cgi/org.eclipse.test/testframework.html?view=co

http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-PDE-Automation/automation.html

but I'm are still in problems. I can't make it work.

With the help of maven 3(tycho) it becomes easy to build the RCP projects nightly. The missing step is the GUI test.

We are running our automated GUI tests with Eclipse 3.5, WindowTester 6.0, Eclipse Test Framework, Ant on Jenkins without any (bigger ;) ) problems.
Eclipse 3.6 should make no difference.

We have not found a convenient way to execute multiple independent tests in a row with Ant yet, but one that at least works.
