Hi, is it possible to use SWTBot to record and generate off an application which just has a SWT based gui but is not RCP?

I've managed to get the bot running to a certain extent by following the tutorial: www.lorenzobettini.it/2014/01/testing-a-plain-swt-application-with-swtbot/ but I really need to find some way to record SWT inputs as I have a bunch of tests I need to generate from inherited code. I've attempted to get windowtester working, but as its aged there is little support or documentation, so I would prefer to use something actively being worked on.

If there isn't a way to use SWTBot in this case, does anyone know of any alternatives? I need something that can be run through JUnit as the project already has pre-existing unit tests which have been made. Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Hi

you might take inspiration by code generated by the generator using an
RCP application and then copy and paste the generated Java code. Just
an idea.

What do you mean by "I need to generate from inherited code"?

Lorenzo, I mean physically inherited (someone else wrote it) not in the programmatic sense. This was gonna be my next approach if I end up deciding to use SWTBot.
