Testing plug-ins has never been considered very sexy... Nor is it very easy to through roughly test all aspects of a plug-ins. A lot of obvious tests are often omitted for these reasons - even though we all know that a good test suite will save you from trouble time and time again.

In this talk I will illustrate 10 easy techniques to test various aspects of a plug-in, ranging from the simple UI tests and tests of plug-in dependencies, over the tests of property testers, source providers and expressions to tests of dialogs and wizards.

The focus in the presentation will be on practical techniques, that can be used directly in your own plug-ins and applications. The presentation is intended for everybody interested in tests or just forced to test plug-ins and not knowing where to start...
