  • Should:
    * Represent the services offered by the page to the test developer
    * Internally knows the details about how these services are offered and the details of UI elements that offer them
    * Return other page objects to model the user’s journey through the application
    * Different results of the same operation modeled differently
  • Should not:
    * Expose details about user interface elements
    * Make assertions about the state of the UI

    • 13. Challenges Internationalization (i18n) and Localization (L10n)
    • 14. Challenges Readability
    • 15. Hands on exercises! Learn by doing.
    • 16. All exercises focus around... creating a java project “MyFirstProject” create a java class type in a program that prints “Hello, World” execute the program verify that the program printed “Hello, World”
    • 17. Exercise 0: Setup
    • 18. Objectives Setup SWTBot Run a test with the SWTBot launch configuration
    • 19. Setting up the Environment Use Eclipse 3.6 Install SWTBot via update site
    • 20. Create a plugin project “org.eclipse.swtbot.examples”
    • 21. Setup Dependencies org.eclipse.ui org.eclipse.core.runtime org.eclipse.swtbot.eclipse.finder org.eclipse.swtbot.junit4_x org.eclipse.swtbot.swt.finder org.junit4
    • 22. Create a new plugin project
    • 23. Create a simple Test @RunWith(SWTBotJunit4ClassRunner.class) public class Test01 { @Test public void thisOneFails() throws Exception { fail("this test fails"); } @Test public void thisOnePasses() throws Exception { pass(); } }
    • 24. Run the first test
    • 25. SWTBot API Introduction
    • 26. Finding widgets SWTWorkbenchBot bot = new SWTWorkbenchBot(); SWTBot[Widget] widget = bot.[widget][With][Matcher(s)](); SWTBotText text = bot.textWithLabel("Username:"); Think of the bot as something that can do tasks for you (e.g., find widgets, click on them, etc.)
    • 27. Finding obscure widgets Use matchers and WidgetMatcherFactory! withLabel("Username:") Matcher pushButtonToProceedToNextStep = allOf( withMnemonic("Finish") widgetOfType(Button.class), withText("&Finish") withStyle(SWT.PUSH), inGroup("Billing Address") withRegex("Proceed to step (.*) >") widgetOfType(Button.class) ); withStyle(SWT.RADIO) withTooltip("Save All") SWTBotButton button = new SWTBotButton( withRegex("Welcome, (.*)") (Button) bot.widget(pushButtonToProceedToNextStep) );
    • 28. Performing actions // click on a button // chain methods to make them concise"File").menu("New").menu("Project...").click(); tree.expand("Project").expand("src").expand("").contextMenu("Delete").clic k(); // delete"Orange", "Banana", "Mango"); // make a selection in a list, 5, 6); // make a selection using indexes
    • 29. Exercise 1: Hello SWTBot
    • 30. Objectives Get introduced to the SWTBot API SWTWorkbenchBot is your friend Tasks beforeClass() - close the welcome view canCreateANewProject() - create a java project Run the test! Ensure SWTBot logging works
    • 31. beforeClass() @BeforeClass public static void beforeClass() throws Exception { bot = new SWTWorkbenchBot(); bot.viewByTitle("Welcome").close(); }
    • 32. canCreateANewProject() @Test public void canCreateANewJavaProject() throws Exception {"File").menu("New").menu("Project...").click(); SWTBotShell shell ="New Project"); shell.activate(); bot.tree().select("Java Project"); bot.button("Next >").click(); bot.textWithLabel("Project name:").setText("MyFirstProject"); bot.button("Finish").click(); }
    • 33. Seeing log messages?
    • 34. How does it work? Magic?
    • 35. )"*#(+,,( -"#$%&'( !"#$%&'(
    • 36. Redundancy and Failure Proofing
    • 37. )"*#(+,,( -"#$%&'( !"#$%&'(
    • 38. Find all widgets Depth first traversal of UI elements 1.Find top level widgets 1.Find children of each widget 2.For each child do (1) and (2)
    • 39. Finding widgets public SWTBotTree treeWithLabelInGroup(String l, String g, int i) { // create the matcher Matcher matcher = allOf( widgetOfType(Tree.class), withLabel(l), inGroup(g) ); // find the widget, with redundancy built in Tree tree = (Tree) widget(matcher, index); // create a wrapper for thread safety // and convinience APIs return new SWTBotTree(tree, matcher); }
    • 40. Thread Safety Tests should run in non-ui thread query state of a widget change state of a widget
    • 41. Thread Safety (Query state) public class SWTBotCheckBox { public boolean isChecked() { // evaluate a result on the UI thread return syncExec(new BoolResult() { public Boolean run() { return widget.getSelection(); } }); } }
    • 42. Thread Safety(change state) public class SWTBotCheckBox { public void select() { asyncExec(new VoidResult() { public void run() { widget.setSelection(true); } }); notifyListeners(); } protected void notifyListeners() { notify(SWT.MouseDown); notify(SWT.MouseUp); notify(SWT.Selection); } }
    • 43. Exercise 2: More SWTBot
    • 44. Objectives Tasks canCreateANewJavaClass() create a new java class: HelloWorld Source folder: MyFirstProject/src Package: org.eclipsecon.project Click Finish! Run the test!
    • 45. canCreateANewJavaClass() @Test public void canCreateANewJavaClass() throws Exception { bot.toolbarDropDownButtonWithTooltip("New Java Class").menuItem("Class").click();"New Java Class").activate(); bot.textWithLabel("Source folder:").setText("MyFirstProject/src"); bot.textWithLabel("Package:").setText("org.eclipsecon.project"); bot.textWithLabel("Name:").setText("HelloWorld"); bot.button("Finish").click(); }
    • 46. Exercise 3: SWTBotEditor
    • 47. Objectives Tasks canTypeInTextInAJavaClass() open a file: set some text in the Java file canExecuteJavaApplication() Run the Java application Run the test!
    • 48. canTypeInTextInAJavaClass() @Test public void canTypeInTextInAJavaClass() throws Exception { Bundle bundle = Activator.getContext().getBundle(); String contents ="test-files/")); SWTBotEditor editor = bot.editorByTitle(""); SWTBotEclipseEditor e = editor.toTextEditor(); e.setText(contents);; }
    • 49. canExecuteJavaApplication() @Test public void canExecuteJavaApplication() throws Exception {"Run").menu("Run").click(); // FIXME: verify that the program printed 'Hello World' }
    • 50. SWTBotEditor
    • 51. Exercise 4: Matchers
    • 52. Objectives Learn about SWTBot and the Matcher API Tasks canExecuteJavaApplication() Run the Java application Grab the Console view Verify that “Hello World” is printed Run the tests!
    • 53. canExecuteJavaApplication() @Test public void canExecuteJavaApplication() throws Exception {"Run").menu("Run").click(); SWTBotView view = bot.viewByTitle("Console"); Widget consoleViewComposite = view.getWidget(); StyledText console = bot.widget(WidgetMatcherFactory.widgetOfType(StyledText.class), consoleViewComposite); SWTBotStyledText styledText = new SWTBotStyledText(console); assertTextContains("Hello World", styledText); }
    • 54. Matchers Under the covers, SWTBot uses Hamcrest Hamcrest is a framework for writing ‘match’ rules SWTBot is essentially all about match rules bot.widget(WidgetMatcherFactory.widgetO fType(StyledText.class), consoleViewComposite);
    • 55. WidgetMatcherFactory
    • 56. Creating matchers WidgetMatcherFactory is your friend! withText("Finish") withLabel("Username:") withRegex("Proceed to step (.*)") widgetOfType(Button.class) withStyle(SWT.ARROW, "SWT.ARROW")
    • 57. Combining matchers allOf(matchers...) anyOf(matchers...) not(matcher) allOf(anyOf(matchers...), matchers...)
    • 58. Exercise 5: Waiting
    • 59. Objectives Learn about waiting and SWTBot Condition API Tasks afterClass() Select the Package Explorer view Select MyFirstProject Right click and delete the project Run the test!
    • 60. afterClass() @AfterClass public static void afterClass() throws Exception { SWTBotView packageExplorerView = bot.viewByTitle("Package Explorer");; Composite packageExplorerComposite = (Composite) packageExplorerView.getWidget(); Tree swtTree = (Tree) bot.widget(WidgetMatcherFactory.widgetOfType(Tree.class), packageExplorerComposite); SWTBotTree tree = new SWTBotTree(swtTree);"MyFirstProject");"Edit").menu("Delete").click(); // the project deletion confirmation dialog SWTBotShell shell ="Delete Resources"); shell.activate(); bot.checkBox("Delete project contents on disk (cannot be undone)").select(); bot.button("OK").click(); bot.waitUntil(shellCloses(shell)); }
    • 61. Handling long operations describe a condition poll for the condition at intervals wait for it to evaluate to true or false of course there’s a timeout SWTBot has an ICondition
    • 62. ICondition
    • 63. Handling Waits private void waitUntil(ICondition condition, long timeout, long interval) { long limit = System.currentTimeMillis() + timeout; condition.init((SWTBot) this); while (true) { try { if (condition.test()) return; } catch (Throwable e) { // do nothing } sleep(interval); if (System.currentTimeMillis() > limit) throw new TimeoutException("Timeout after: " + timeout); } }
    • 64. Conditions is your friend
    • 65. Building Abstractions
    • 66. Abstractions are good! They simplify writing tests for QA folks Build page objects for common “services” Project Explorer The Editor The Console View The main menu bar, tool bar
    • 67. Model Capabilities Create a project Delete a project Create a class Execute a class more...
    • 68. Domain Objects
    • 69. Domain Objects? Represent the operations that can be performed on concepts
    • 70. Sample Domain Object public class JavaProject { public JavaProject create(String projectName){ // create a project and return it } public JavaProject delete(){ // delete the project and return it } public JavaClass createClass(String className){ // create a class and return it } }
    • 71. Page Objects
    • 72. Page Objects? Represent the services offered by the page to the test developer Internally knows the details about how these services are offered and the details of UI elements that offer them Return other page objects to model the user’s journey through the application Different results of the same operation modeled
    • 73. Page Objects... should not Expose details about user interface elements Make assertions about the state of the UI
    • 74. A Sample Page Object public class LoginPage { public HomePage loginAs(String user, String pass) { // ... clever magic happens here } public LoginPage loginAsExpectingError(String user, String pass) { // ... failed login here, maybe because one or both of // username and password are wrong } public String getErrorMessage() { // So we can verify that the correct error is shown } }
    • 75. Using Page Objects // the bad test public void testMessagesAreReadOrUnread() { Inbox inbox = new Inbox(driver); inbox.assertMessageWithSubjectIsUnread("I like cheese"); inbox.assertMessageWithSubjectIsNotUndread("I'm not fond of tofu"); } // the good test public void testMessagesAreReadOrUnread() { Inbox inbox = new Inbox(driver); assertTrue(inbox.isMessageWithSubjectIsUnread("I like cheese")); assertFalse(inbox.isMessageWithSubjectIsUnread("I'm not fond of tofu")); }
    • 76. LoginPage login = new LoginPage(); HomePage home = login.loginAs("username", "secret"); SearchPage search = home.searchFor("swtbot"); assertTrue(search.containsResult(""));
    • 77. Exercise 6: Abstractions
    • 78. Objectives Learn about page and domain objects Tasks Create a NewProjectBot Opens the new project wizard Allows you to set the project name and click finish Modify canCreateANewJavaProject() Run the test!
    • 79. NewProjectBot public class NewProjectBot { private static SWTWorkbenchBot bot; public NewProjectBot() {"File").menu("New").menu("Project...").click();"New Project").activate(); bot.tree().select("Java Project"); bot.button("Next >").click(); } public void setProjectName(String projectName) { bot.textWithLabel("Project name:").setText(projectName); } public void finish() { bot.button("Finish").click(); } }
    • 80. Modify Project Wizard Code @Test public void canCreateANewJavaProject() throws Exception { // use the NewProjectBot abstraction NewProjectBot newProjectBot = new NewProjectBot(); newProjectBot.setProjectName("MyFirstProject"); newProjectBot.finish(); assertProjectCreated(); }
    • 81. Best Practices & Tips
    • 82. Logging Turn logging on always, it helps :) FAQ#How_do_I_configure_log4j_to_turn_on _logging_for_SWTBot.3F
    • 83. Slow down executions Useful for debugging at times... SWTBotPreferences.PLAYBACK_DELAY -Dorg.eclipse.swtbot.playback.delay=20 or via code... long oldDelay = SWTBotPreferences.PLAYBACK_DELAY; // increase the delay SWTBotPreferences.PLAYBACK_DELAY = 10; // do whatever // set to the original timeout of 5 seconds SWTBotPreferences.PLAYBACK_DELAY = oldDelay;
    • 84. Changing Timeout SWTBotPreferences.TIMEOUT or via code... long oldTimeout = SWTBotPreferences.TIMEOUT; // increase the timeout SWTBotPreferences.TIMEOUT = 10000; // do whatever // set to the original timeout of 5 seconds SWTBotPreferences.TIMEOUT = oldTimeout;
    • 85. Identifiers In our examples, we used labels as matchers mostly SWTBot allows you to use IDs as matchers IDs are less brittle than labels! text.setData(SWTBotPreferences.DEFAULT_ KEY,”id”) bot.textWithId(“id”)
    • 86. Page Objects Use Page Objects to simplify writing tests Allows more people than just normal devs to write tests
    • 87. More SWTBot? Eclipse Forms support in HEAD GEF support is available for graphical editor testing
