Hi,

I'm developing plug-ins under/for eclipse. Now I have the problem to test the gui, e.g. testing a wizards with its pages?

Anyone knows/recommend a framework I can use?

Thanks in advance
Thomas

Have you considered buying Contributing to Eclipse: Principles, Patterns, and Plugins by Kent Beck and Erich Gamma?

I took a short gander at the table of contents of this book, but nothing mentioned there about gui-testing!
Did you use it?

I have it but haven't applied it (I'm not developing Eclipse plugins right now and I've never developed an Eclipse plugin with a GUI -- only "file processing" related stuff you can launch from a context menu).

However, the book is full of small snippets of code showing how Kent & Erich are test-driving their plugin GUIs.
