I just wanted to say thanks to you guys. I've been dreading setting up
UI testing for out model execution capabilites but it's something that
is really really needed so I finally bit the bullet after one too many
debugging sessions with me serving as the robot. ;) SWTBot is one of
the first tools that I have been able to pick up and get running on in
a matter of an hour or so. You've clearly put a lot of energy into
thinking about common usages and supporting them.

*bows down gracefully*

This has been the effort of 2 rewrites and one major refactoring (to
make a 2.0)

SWTBot embraces Tell-Don't-Ask[1][2] which is not a norm in the eclipse
world. Readability of tests is the first priority when any swtbot api is
written, this is what makes people coming from the eclipse world like
swtbot.
