Session Type: 
Standard [25 minutes]

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.

Testing the Eclipse Packaging Project (EPP)

Session Type: 
Standard [25 minutes]

Schedule info

The Eclipse Packaging Project (EPP) provides prepackaged Eclipse installations which are adapted to specific user profiles (e.g. Java Developer, Java EE Developer, Eclipse for Testers). Each package contains the functions necessary for a given profile and their dependencies. When it comes to testing release candidates, each package must undergo testing on all supported platforms to check that all components and dependencies are present and that they interact correctly with each other.
