Re: [platform-ui-dev] Need more M6 testing

A long while.

We should probably all use the Project Explorer view instead of the

functionality now.


2009/3/11 Boris Bokowski <Boris_Bokowski@xxxxxxxxxx>:
Looking at the list of bugs (191!) we fixed for M6 we should spend more time
on testing. Any help we can get, especially testing the common navigator,
would be appreciated.

We need a solid M6, this build is going to be used widely due to EclipseCon.

Here is the list:∏uct=Platform&component=IDE&component=UI&target_milestone=3.5+M6&long_desc_type=allwordssubstr&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwords

High-level overview of features that need testing:
- Common Navigator (lots of fixes went in). Note that the CN not only
appears as the Project Explorer view in the SDK, but also in the Synchronize
view, and in the wizard for setting up a new synchronization.
- Multi-instance Properties view (new)
- Workspaces property page, under General > Startup and Shutdown (new)
- Open Type (Ctrl+T) and Open Resource (Ctrl+R) (bug fixes)
- Extensible About dialog with p2 tabs (new)
- status handling a.k.a. error dialog (several bug fixes)

In particular, do we know any downstream clients of the common navigator
personally? Could we get them to test their use cases, ideally today, using
a recent build? I20090311-0100 had a compile error, but I20090311-0800 is
looking good so far.

In addition to any outside help we may get, I would like everyone on the
team to do more testing today and tomorrow. If you are busy preparing for
EclipseCon you are exempt.
