Hello,

at the moment I'm searching for a possibilty to create Automated GUI
Tests for a RCP Application I'm writing my first thought was to try TPTP
of the Eclipse project, but after I installed TPTP and the other
required plugins. I was able to record the test like documented on the
website. So I moved forward to record the first test-suite for my
application. I tried to run it with the run->eclipse-application but the
actions I made within the runtime-workbench were not recorded. Then I
installed the RCP as Plugin in the IDE and made another effort to record
my tests and I were successful, but therefore I had to move code from
the Application.class needed to run a rcp application but not needed for
a plugin. So now I'm wondering if I did something wrong, because I
initialized some global attributes inside the Application.class which
fits for the RCP but not for the Plugin. Or am I using the TPTP Plugin
wrong ? Because from my point of view a RCP in Eclipse is a specialized
Plugin or vice versa. So TPTP can be used for both RCP and Plugin, but
it seems to be that the RCP must be installed like an eclipse plugin in
order to record automated gui tests.
Someone else some thoughts about this ?

regards

Olaf Schmitz

Yes, you're right. Standalone RCP applications are not supported.
Currently AGR only supports applications developed under Eclipse IDE. There
is a feature open to support RCP applications:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=114159. The feature is
targeted to 4.2 but marked as helpwanted (i.e. TPTP doesn't have the
resources to implement the feature but is willing to accept contributions
from individuals/companies to have the feature included in the next release)
