What's the best option for automating plugin tests these days?

I've read a couple of articles at Eclipse Corner,

http://www.eclipse.org/resources/resource.php?id=424
http://www.eclipse.org/resources/resource.php?id=156

as well as the references to those articles and the pages on the Eclipse Testing Framework.

I've tried all of the different methods with Eclipse Indigo, but none of them seem to work. They all appear to be just too old. For example, the Eclipse Testing Framework is no longer maintained; Pulling org.eclipse.test from the repo and rebuilding it fails because of the use of "PlatformRunnable." The Platform Release Engineering tools, (Releng), also no long contain org.eclipse.test.

My plugins are building nightly with Hudson and publishing to my site, but I'd like to test them too. Any thoughts?

Hello Jay,

as I see, you already found the proper place to get answers to
questions regarding plugin development and tests.

For those, who want to see the followups - this is the same
question on eclipse.platform.pde:

Best regards,

Heiner

Heiner,

Thanks for the response and, yes, I determined that the PDE forum was the more appropriate place for my question.

The solution to my question appears to be Maven+Tycho.
