I'm putting together a very long document[1] that will walk users
through getting up and running with SWTBot.

The existing user guide[2] needs significant improvement since it makes
a lot of assumptions about users knowing java, the eclipse install
process, junit and possibly a few others.

I'm trying to ensure that users have a smoother experience with getting
started with swtbot.

Later I'll be putting down thoughts in a cheatsheet with some neat tips
and tricks that will improve productivity.

Let me know if there is anything you'd like for me to document. I'm sure
a lot of you have faced hurdles at some point or the other and any
thoughts on improving those would be of great help.

Hi Ketan
It will be good to have all this info in one place!

It would be good to include snippets/ descriptions for the correct, standard way to do certain common operations. For example:

- activating a newly opened dialog to access its controls.
- tidying up after tests, even if they have failed, so that all dialogs are closed and the next test can begin in a 'clean' state. This is still the commonest cause of test failures in our suite
- writing wait conditions.

One thing I found challenging was how hamcrest.matcher works , and what functionality is already available for matching things in the SWTBot api - e.g., checking if views are opened, for example.
