With the high popularity of JUnit and its great integration into Eclipse, unit testing is a no-brainer for Java developers. But when it comes to the graphical user interface, unit testing is not the right approach. Automated GUI testing is one of the most challenging QA tasks, esp. when looking at today's complex user interfaces. In this BoF I'd like to discuss approaches, best practises and experiences of automated GUI testing of Eclipse RCP applications.

Reginald Stadlbauer is co-founder of froglogic GmbH. Born in Graz, Austria, during university he joined the KDE project and wrote the office applications KPresenter and KWord. In 1999 he started working as senior software architect for Trolltech ASA, the creator of the Qt GUI toolkit. In 2003 Reginald co-founded froglogic - specializing in the automated testing of user interfaces by providing services and the popular GUI testing tool Squish for a variety of GUI technology such as Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java Swing/AWT, Web/HTML/Ajax and Qt.
