In this interactive session, the class will pair program with the speakers on an Eclipse RCP application. By leveraging the Eclipse IDE and techniques the speakers will demonstrate, you’ll participate in writing great unit tests and making them pass. This tutorial is very hands-on but will include enough lecture and Q&A time to explore the whys, not just the hows. Topics like user interface testing, Model View Presenter (MVP) vs Model View Controller (MVC), databinding, PDEUnit, TPTP and automated acceptance testing in RCP will also be addressed.
Always remember: Red, Green, Refactor!
To get the most from this class, bring a laptop with Eclipse 3.3 installed. Also, have some basic knowledge of Eclipse plug-in development and JUnit.
