Thanks for your interest in the API Recorder. Although Technology
Preview is tested, it is still maturing function sometimes with outstanding
Let me try to address these issues below:

The API Recorder is tested and works with both the Agent Controller and
Integrated Agent Controller (IAC).

TPTP does have a 18.104.22.168 release. I would assume you are (and recommend)
using the latest
maintenance release (22.214.171.124). See:

I believe this is caused by
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=138110#c6. If you are using
4.4.0+, please open a defect for this problem
( https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=TPTP%20T esting under
the Test.Agents.Recorder component) with the steps/code to reproduce the

Currently, only stand-alone Java applications are supported by the API
Recorder. That is, RCP applications are not supported.
When you launch your SWT application, does the application appear and run to
completion? Is a recording created?
Your issue with a stand-alone SWT application and
Swing application (e.g. Java - Application launch configuration) appears to
defect. After looking at the code generation code, I cannot determine where
extra characters are coming from. Can you attach the generated test suite

Yes, by default everything is excluded. You need to specify which packages,
classes, and methods to be recorded. Complete package, class, and method
names (e.g. no trailing *) have been tested to work. If your does not,
reply with the filter set.

Great feedback. There is no default selection since the dialog is reused.

Thank you. We would be interested in discussing if you would like to
contribute to this component.

Yes, you can export the probe (File >> Export >> Test >> API Recorder Probe.
