Introduction to Functional Testing with SWTBot and Maven/Tycho

SWTBot is an open-source Eclipse project for functional testing of SWT applications. SWTBot provides a Java API for specifying the behavior of the UI application to test, thus it is a purely programmatic approach to UI testing. Differently from other functional testing frameworks, like Jubula and RCP Testing Tool, you do not specify the expected behavior using a visual editor and a model representing the actions to perform on the application under test: you write a standard JUnit test using SWTBot fluent Java API, which hides most of the complexities of SWT and Eclipse.
In this presentation we will give an introduction to functional testing with SWTBot and we will also show how to integrate such tests in a Continuous Integration system with Maven/Tycho. Most of the presentation will consist in a live demo.
