When I am developing the plugin I want to make sure that the following is vaild for my plugin:

- It installs and runs on different platforms ( Linux/Solaris/Windows).

- That it installs and runs on 2-3 different versions of Eclipse ( java developer).

I need to automate this so you can run some kind of ant script when it is time for release.

Anyone with hints on how to go about testing this. Anyone with experience of this or who has the same problem ( then we can work together to solve it...).

You can write test plugins, and then modify the automated test scripts
to install and run your tests. By default the test scripts run a test
plugin (with a test.xml) in the version of eclipse you just built. [1] runTests shows the setup for our tests. runtests [2]
actually unzips an eclipse to use as a base, and calls the tests, and
test.xml [3] defines how we install plugins into an eclipse and launch them.
