The JBoss Tools Integration Tests project


JBoss Tools Integration Test contains SWT Bot test plugins for overall integration testing of JBoss Tools.


JBoss Tools Integration Tests is part of JBoss Tools from which it can be downloaded and installed on its own or together with the full JBoss Tools distribution.

Get the code

The easiest way to get started with the code is to create your own fork, and then clone your fork:

$ git clone<you>/jbosstools-integration-tests.git
$ cd jbosstools-integration-tests
$ git remote add upstream git://

At any time, you can pull changes from the upstream and merge them onto your master:

$ git checkout master               # switches to the 'master' branch
$ git pull upstream master          # fetches all 'upstream' changes and merges 'upstream/master' onto your 'master' branch
$ git push origin                   # pushes all the updates to your fork, which should be in-sync with 'upstream'

The general idea is to keep your 'master' branch in-sync with the 'upstream/master'.

Building JBoss Tools Integration Tests

To build JBoss Tools Integration Tests requires specific versions of Java and Maven. Also, there is some Maven setup. The How to Build JBoss Tools with Maven 3 document will guide you through that setup.

This command will run the build:

$ mvn clean verify

If you just want to check if things compiles/builds you can run:

$ mvn clean verify -DskipTest=true

But do not push changes without having the new and existing unit tests pass!

Contribute fixes and features

JBoss Tools Integration Tests is open source, and we welcome anybody that wants to participate and contribute!

If you want to fix a bug or make any changes, please log an issue in the JBoss Tools JIRA describing the bug or new feature and give it a component type of QA. Then we highly recommend making the changes on a topic branch named with the JIRA issue number. For example, this command creates a branch for the JBIDE-1234 issue:

$ git checkout -b jbide-1234

After you're happy with your changes and a full build (with unit tests) runs successfully, commit your changes on your topic branch (with good comments). Then it's time to check for any recent changes that were made in the official repository:

$ git checkout master               # switches to the 'master' branch
$ git pull upstream master          # fetches all 'upstream' changes and merges 'upstream/master' onto your 'master' branch
$ git checkout jbide-1234           # switches to your topic branch
$ git rebase master                 # reapplies your changes on top of the latest in master
                                      (i.e., the latest from master will be the new base for your changes)

If the pull grabbed a lot of changes, you should rerun your build with tests enabled to make sure your changes are still good.

You can then push your topic branch and its changes into your public fork repository:

$ git push origin jbide-1234         # pushes your topic branch into your public fork of JBoss Tools Integration Tests

And then generate a pull-request where we can review the proposed changes, comment on them, discuss them with you, and if everything is good merge the changes right into the official repository.

Branching process check-list

Integration Tests have different life cycle than other repos in JBT - we typically don’t need to develop tests for next versions of JBT until the current version under development is released. So while we’re testing the current version, we’re using master.

Once a major version of JBT is released (e.g. JBT 4.1.1.Final), create a branch, e.g. jbosstools-4.1.x

In the newly created maintenance branch, these steps are needed:

  • Fix RedDeer repo url in root pom.xml to point to something stable rather then the ever-moving RedDeer master repo

  • Update integration tests repo url in root pom.xml to point to a maintenance repo, e.g.:

    This is a chicken-egg problem. In order to add this repo to the pom, you need the url to be working. But to create the Jenkins job you need to have this branch ready.

    So either create the job using master branch first and later change it to use the maintenance branch once it's ready. Or first do the rest of these steps, create the job, publish the site and eventually change the url in the pom.

In the master branch, these steps are needed:

  • Update parent pom dependency to new version, e.g. 4.2.0.Alpha1-SNAPSHOT

  • Update integration tests repo url in root pom.xml

  • Update all plugins/tests/poms version to the new version:

    $ mvn org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-versions-plugin:set-version -DnewVersion=<version> 

    where version is e.g. 4.2.0-SNAPSHOT

  • Update range for bot.ext in all manifests to the new version, e.g.:

    $ find . -iname|xargs perl -pi -e 's/\[4.1.0,4.2.0\)/[4.2.0,4.3.0)/'
