Since your question is specific to the Eclipse Platform Project, please
post your question to their news group
( http://www.eclipse.org/newsportal/thread.php?group=eclipse.p latform).
FYI, the Eclipse Platform Project uses JUnit and JUnit Plug-in test
suites to test their code. The test suites are executed using the JDT JUnit
runner. TPTP provides the same support (JUnit and JUnit Plug-in test
suites), with the addition of remote test execution, test log, BIRT-based
test reports, and automated test execution/results reporting via Ant:
