Testing plug-ins with JUnit
This document is principally concerned with the JUnit
Plug-in test process. As such, the document assumes that the reader is familiar
with Eclipse plug-in development. If not, reference should be made to the
Eclipse online Help Guides, Platform Plug-in Developer Guide and JDT
Plug-in Developer Guide.
Where we do make specific reference to Eclipse plug-in
development facilities or concepts, this is with a view to providing the reader
with a context within which they can relate to the JUnit Plug-in test process.
We are going to illustrate the JUnit Plug-in test
process by working through a simple example step-by-step.
There are various stages involved:
Create and configure a plug-in project
For this example, we create and configure a plug-in project named pluginProject.
Creating a JUnit Plug-in test
Create the test that will be used to test the plug-in.
Creating a workbench location
A workbench location is used to specify where a TPTP JUnit Plug-in test will run.
Creating a deployment
This section describes how to create a deployment for your test suite.
The examples are set within the context of the Test perspective.
Running a test
There are a number of options available to run a test.
Generating test reports
After you have run your tests and generated execution histories, you can generate a report
on those test results to summarize the data.
