How to start AUT from sources.
Q7, 21.08.2013 by Ulyana Skorokhodova
To reduce roundtrip check for changes in the code and allow developers to write tests for the new
functionality without waiting for the assembly of the product, AUT can be run from sources.
Install Q7 into Eclipse Indigo (3.7).
For other Eclipse versions you will need to set a Target platform first (see below).
1. Go to Help/Eclipse Marketplace (or install Eclipse Marketplace Client
first, if you don’t have any):
2. Search for Q7
and press Install for Xored Q7 UI Testing Tools for RCP
3. Leave both ECL IDE
and Q7 Platfom
selected, Finish the installation:
Configure your AUT from sources.
1. Go to Run Configurations
and add a new Eclipse Application
2. Switch to Plug-ins tab, select Launch with: plug-ins selected below only
the required plug-ins.
3. Add new Eclipse Application under Test
and set Eclipse Application as a Target.
Now switch to Q7 Perspective, start your Eclipse Application under Test (you can do it right
from Applications view) and you’re all set.
For other Eclipse versions (not Indigo).
What if you don’t use Eclipse 3.7 in your development process?
Then you need to run Eclipse 3.7 anyway and set a your Eclipse X.X as a Target Platform
to run your application with.
1. Go to Window/Preferences/Plug-in Development/Target Platform
2. Add a new Target Definition for your Eclipse version (e.g. Eclipse 3.6), make it Active:
Now you can install Q7 and configure your AUT.
