How to test RCP application with login screen? [message #1431133] Thu, 25 September 2014 08:51 Go to next message

Hello,

I have a 3rd party E3.x rcp application.
The application has authentication with login screen when started.

After entering the login details and selecting "login", the actual rcp application starts.

I want to write SWTBot tests for this application, but SWTBot FAQ says that login screens are not supported.

It suggesting that login operation should be modified to read authentication from the system properties, but I can't do that, because it's a 3rd party app.

Any suggestions how to proceed?

Thanks for your help!

Documentation is exhaustive here: you can't test login screens with
SWTBot. If your application doesn't provide a way to skip the login
screen, then I think you're stuck. The login screen part will need to
operated manually.
Once login screen is gone, then tests should work just fine.

Ok, thanks for the reply.
I want to make automated tests for all the application that are run in the CI environment. I can't start to make manual operations.

So this means I need to select then other testing tool than SWTBot for RCP application.
