Re: [tycho-user] Running UI tests without starting a full-blown workbench

Hi Mikael,,

thanks for your suggestions.

I still need to have an OSGi runtime, due to Bundle-Classpath manifest
entries and multiple versions of the same dependency on the "classpath",
so using the maven-surefire-plugin is not an option, I'm afraid.

Starting the display in the test code can be done fairly unobtrusively

> 	@AfterClass

but I couldn't get the display.readAndDispatch()/display.sleep() loop to

Next I tried setting up my own dummy IApplication and registering it in
my UI test's fragment.xml, but despite configuring the <application>
with the tych-surefire-plugin, the plugin cannot find it:

>  Could not find application "org.example.application" in the test runtime. Make sure that the test runtime includes the bundle which defines this application.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Best wishes,
