Hi!

I've made a generic testcase using SWTBot for then, to be able to change some parameters in the test.

So, I wanna give an argument to my swtbot java class when this one is executed. This parameter will change the behaviour of the test so, it's there any possibilities to do that?

I mean, how can I give a variable to my test class, so, I will able to change my test?

Thank you!!

You could probably use system properties when launching your test. When
launching, add this parameter: -Dname.of.property=value ; then, inside
your test case, use this: System.getProperty("name.of.property").
This'll return the value you passed as a string. It's also a good idea
to provide a default value, using the 2 args method instead:
System.getProperty("name.of.property", "defaultValue").

Hope this helps

Didn't know that this existed! Seems quite handy! It also look more
appropriated then my solution.
