Hi,

I am creating an eclipse plugin.
I need to also do this using Test Driven Development.

A large part of my plugin code uses eclipse work bench elements -
IContaner, IProject, IJavaProject, IFolder and so on.

1) How do I structure my code so that I can unit test code thats involving
these elements without doing GUI testing?
2) How do I write GUI tests?

Hi Raster,

Sounds like the best solution would be to make two seperate plug-ins --
one which is for the model and one for the view (myplugin.model.** and
myplugin.ui.**, I suppose). Then, when you need to do any unit testing,
you can just use the model plug-in. Not sure about how to do GUI tests.

Cheers,
Chris

SWTBot to the rescue for GUI tests. It is designed to test the gui.

Thanks.
Lets say I do seperate the code into view and non-view parts how do I
ensure that the JUNIT test cases can run as part of the workbench in so
that they are able to access objects like IProject instances without me
needing to mock these objects.
Thanks again if you can reply to this too.
