Hi,
I have a small SWING application, it contains a few text fields and a
button. I want to test this without human interaction. For buttons, I tried the button.doClick() but it did not do anything! And for the text fields, I can't figure out how to do it. I am relatively new to SWING, I would appreciate your help so much.
Thanks,
Ann

There are some unit testing frameworks already built for testing Swing GUIs -
jfcUnit and Abbot are both built as extensions to the JUnit unit testing framework to test GUI applications.
