I am not sure of the "nuts and bolts" of using the SWTBot EclipseSpy view. I can get it to open, and it appears to give me information about the IDE as a move the cursor over the Eclipse IDE.|
I would like to know how to use it to discover widgets on the RCP app I am trying to test. If I run the RCP App, and if I hover over Widgets in the RCP app, I get no results showing up in the EclipseSpy View. It seems that knowing about the widgets of the app I want to test is more important than the widgets in the Eclipse IDE.
Do I need to include the EclipseSpy as a dependency for my app under test? Do I need to embed something in the app to make it EclipseSpy aware?
Just a quick "How-To" for button pushes on using the EclipseSpy View would be helpful. I am using Indigo (3.7) and one of the latest SWTBot downloads.
My simple SWTBot test seems to work fine, but I need to know how to use the EclipseSpy View.

I've never even looked at the EclipseSpy code but I guess it listen to
mouse move and get the control under the mouse and change the content
when it's a new control.
If it works with the IDE, I think it could work with any RCP
application: just install the plugin in your RCP app, open the
EclipseSpy view, and it should be all. If it's not working, it's most
likely a bug.

The EclipseSpy is only intended to SWTBot UI, and most likely only
"spies on" the application that hosts it.
