since we aren't using Scout yet at me company all I can say is based on what I've heard at the Eclipse Summit from you guys and what I've read on your wiki.
Since Scout's UI generators support SWT and Swing there is a good chance that GUI test with Jubula will work right out of the box. Jubula focuses on high level abstractions, so it will be beneficial to support high level controls/functions from the Scout framework. This can be done using the extension mechanism provided with the Remote Control components of Jubula. Depending on the complexity of Scout controls this can take a couple of hours or even a few days to implement. If there is enough interest we might be doing this and of course you are very welcome to contribute code to test your controls
I'm from Sequoyah project and we would like to introduce ourselves. Sequoyah (http://www.eclipse.org/sequoyah/) project's purpose is to be focused on the needs of all mobile developers.
Currently we also are working in a component for automating tests for mobile users. It is the Automation Test Framework ( http://www.eclipse.org/sequoyah/components/autom_test_fw.php). This component is in an early development stage right now. As you can see in our documentation, our component and Jubula have some common points. We would like to discuss a little bit more how we can work together and explore those common points in a combined effort, in order to deliver a great testing environment for all users.
Also, are you guys considering going to EclipseCon 2011? Maybe we can gather there and discuss some ideas. We could even have a Birds of a Feather (BOF) session together, focusing on tests. What do you think?
