Eclipse RedDeer Testing Framework
Eclipse RedDeer project is an extensible framework used for development of automated SWT/Eclipse tests which interacts with application’s user interface. RedDeer provides the PageObjects API for comfortable testing of standard SWT (Buttons, Trees..), JFace (UIForms), Workbench (Views, Editors, ..) and Eclipse (Wizards, Preferences,...) components and also allows creating and extending your own components. RedDeer also provides capabilities to work with graphical editors based on GEF or Graphiti.
Eclipse RedDeer is extensively tested on Linux/CentOS platform. Examination of test results in CI environment is easier thanks to capturing screenshots on test failures and collecting Eclipse Platform log.
Get the code
The easiest way to get started with the code is to create your own fork, then clone your fork and finally add upstream:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:<you>/reddeer.git $ cd reddeer $ git remote add upstream http://github.com/eclipse/reddeer.git
Build RedDeer locally
In case that you have the git repo cloned locally, you can build it using maven:
$ mvn clean install
If you just want to build the base and not to run tests, use this:
$ mvn clean install -DskipTests=true
