Hello All,

We really liked the SWT Bot approach for automated UI testing, however we
can't really find out how to run the SWT Bot tests outside of Eclipse.

As a good adopers of Agile SW priniciples we would like to run SWT Bot tests
as a part of our automated acceptance tests therefore we would need to
somehow automate transfer of compiled test code to the automated acceptance
test run envirnoment and run it from there.

What also be nice to have is to allow users who has a source code of our
system ability to run SWT Bot driven tests directly on their computers, i.e.
Checkout source code from SVN, and run a build which will also trigger
automatic acceptance tests. We are using maven, maven2 and ant for building
environment.

Thanks!

Renat

Renat,

This is already available. If you're in a hurry and want to use the
existing SWTBot at sf.net, just use the patched
eclipse-test-framework[1] and the build scripts available in svn[2] (the
"swtbot-test" target).

In order to run, you'll need to extract the eclipse-test-framework[1],
swtbot.finder and swtbot.eclipse.finder plugins into the eclipse
instance you want to test.

I'm hoping to clean up the eclipse-test-framework so that it works
without a patch, and you should be able to use SWTBot on cruise or
developer machines from within ant.
