SWTBot launch configuration obsolete? [message #42053] Tue, 07 July 2009 15:35 Go to next message

I saw that in the recent Eclipse 3.5 release jdt added an option in its
junit launch configuration which permits to launch test in a separate
thread then the UI thread. With this addition, I wonder what is the
difference between the SWTBot launch configuration and the JUnit one? I
tried a Junit Plug-in test with the new option and my test cases worked
fine.

And could this affect a headless testing environment? More specifically,
is the org.eclipse.swtbot.eclipse.core.UITestApplication still relevant?

I see that there is the backward compatibility issue, but is there
something other then that?

This is a very valid question. I think the launcher is still relevant
for the following reasons:
- it's a one-click way to run a test instead of going to the
configuration dialog and selecting the checkbox.
- there's no headless support for the non-ui thread execution AFAIK.
- it's not too hard to maintain -- just a couple of classes that hardly
ever change

Of course I'm open to ways of improving the whole thing if it helps
throw code out the door. The lesser the code, the better for everybody :)
