Plug-in test fails

Postby pnye » Thu Sep 23, 2004 8:06 am

Running the plug-in test at 2.8.4 results in a failure with the message:

Class not found com.qualityeclipse.favorites.test.FavoritesViewTest

Using the Run wizzard for the test, examining the Source tab shows the source lookup path com.qualityeclipse.favorites.test listed.

A careful look for spelling errors reveals nothing out of place.

I assume JUnit's classpath is not guiding it to the appropriate place. If so where might that classpath be set?

Any help would be appreciated.

Example failure

Well, I figured out the problem. I had it for the original sample and fixed it. It's outlined in the "unable to instantiate view'" thread.

Basically, you need a second constructor whose signature is

public FavoritesTestPlugin(IPluginDescriptor descriptor) {
plugin = this;
