Hi all,

I've released a new version of my free open source GUI test tool PyUseCase, which has in this version gained support for SWT/Eclipse RCP by using SWTBot. Many thanks for a great tool to build on top of Smile

Explanations and homepage:
http://www.texttest.org/index.php?page=ui_testing

Step-by-step tutorial (not using SWT, but illustrating how the tool works) at
http://www.texttest.org/index.php?page=documentation_3_21&am p;n=gui_tests

The point of PyUseCase is to combine the ease of recording tests directly from the UI with the maintainability of having tests defined in a high-level domain language defined by the tester. The ultimate aim is to allow non-programming testers to create and administer their own test suite with minimal fuss and without having to rely on others to create test code for them. Having domain-language tests and no test code is also useful even if you are a programmer in my experience...

For those that groan at the mention of the word "recorder", rest assured this is nothing like any recorders you've seen before Smile

This is the first version of PyUseCase to support testing of applications written in a language other than Python. The SWT support is probably beta status for now, and it doesn't yet handle all widget types that SWTBot supports. Would love to get feedback from anyone trying it out.

Regards,
Geoff Bache

A 30 second screencast that shows a demo of how to get up an running
might be a good thing to get people hooked on.

Just saying ;)

OK, there's now a screencast showing how to use it to record a test for the RCP Mail application.

Enjoy,
