Testing Eclipse plug-ins: from unit to end-to-end testing

In this talk we want to share some tips and tricks on how to test Eclipse plug-ins at several stages during the development. In particular, we will show how to do without a running workbench (i.e., “Plug-in tests”) and without functional testing frameworks (e.g., SWTBot) as much as possible, relying only on plain JUnit tests.

Code Coverage in Practice

Finally the award-winning EclEmma code coverage plug-in for Eclipse became an Eclipse.org project! This is a good opportunity to summarize experiences and best practices, such as continuous inspection, for efficient usage of one of the most popular open-source tool to measure Java code coverage that EclEmma integrates into Eclipse - JaCoCo ( http://www.jacoco.org/jacoco/index.html ).
