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.

Hi there,
there is an automated tester as of 1.3,
it allows screen capture, and automated mouse movement, clicking etc...
unfortunately i havent played around with it yet to give you more information.
if you try it out and like it please let me know.

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.
