[eclipse-dev] PDE JUnit 3.0: Full Throttle

For quite some time now, JUnit-based support for testing Eclipse plug-ins
has been made possible by the optional (and very popular)
"org.eclipse.pde.junit" plug-in, courtesy of the JDT UI team.
As of Tuesday's integration build, an enhanced version of this plug-in will
become part of the PDE component in the SDK, as the old one slowly fades
[Pause, as the ZRH lab cheers]

Notable changes:
- the pde.junit launcher has been upgraded to be in the same league as the
JDT JUnit and the Runtime Workbench launchers.
- the new restructured plug-in, now called 'org.eclipse.pde.junit.runtime',
is pretty lightweight with a very short list of required plug-ins
(org.eclipse.jdt.runtime, org.junit and (optional) org.eclipse.ui).  This
restructuring addresses the demands of those developing plug-ins that have
no dependencies on UI, JDT, etc.

Note that for this week's I-build, the new pde.junit launcher's name is
"New JUnit Plug-in Test" to distinguish it from the old pde.junit (if you
have it lying around).
The word "New" will be dropped next week in time for the milestone build.
