Getting the source
You can use a git mirror of that repository:
git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/swtbot/org.eclipse.swtbot.git
To contribute changes to the website, use this git repo: https://git.eclipse.org/c/www.eclipse.org/swtbot.git
Recommended Eclipse plugins
It's advised that you use the following plugins in Eclipse:
- FindBugs (with a high "Minimum rank to report" set in Window > Preferences > Java > Findbugs)
- Configure JDT in "pedantic" mode: from Window > Preferences > Java > Compiler > Errors/Warning make all violations send a warning, ignore nothing.
- EclEmma is useful to analyze Coverage Reports
- ... Any other tool that makes you write better code faster ...
You can find some ready-to-use target platforms for development in the devtools/target-platforms folder. Each target-platform basically target a version of the Eclipse release train. It's recommended to use one of these target-platform since it contains all SWTBot dependencie. These target-platforms are also used at build time, so your dependencies in IDE will be consistent with dependencies during build. Enable the selected target-platform by opening it in IDE with the target definition editor, and click Set As Target Platform.
In case something is not working well, please report them as a bug.
- First Get the sources, as explained a few lines above.
- then mvn clean verify
- That's all!
NOTE: default build performs against Eclipse Indigo. You can test and build against Juno instead by activatin the "juno" profile: mvn clean verify -P juno, and for Kepler, run mvn clean verify -P kepler.
Continuous integrations build for swtbot are available here:
A view also exists, it contains also older build configurations: https://hudson.eclipse.org/hudson/view/SWTBot/
Sonar is used in order to track Code Quality:
- contains results of dedicated build https://hudson.eclipse.org/sandbox/job/SWTBot-Sonar/

Provide a contribution using Gerrit
- First, read carefully this documents: Gerrit to set up commit hooks and other things. We recommand using the EGit-Gerrit connector.
In case you work without EGit Gerrit connector:
- Make your change locally, and git commit them in your local repo. Commit message must contain Bug Number.
- when you're ready, git push your change to Gerrit using the following command: git push ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:29418/swtbot/org.eclipse.swtbot.git HEAD:refs/for/master
- After the push, log tells you about a URL which tracks the contribution
In any case
- Share this URL on the bug you're working on.
Provide a patch (Deprecated in favor of Gerrit)
In order to provide a patch, follow the following process:
- git checkout branch_you_want_to_edit
- Modify code
- git add your/modified/file1 your/modified/file2 ...
- git commit Put number of the bug you are working on at the beginning of commit message
- git format-patch HEAD^
- Attach generated patch to the bug you want to contribute to.
- Committer must subscribe to notifications to not miss a contribution. See how to set up nofications
- Committer have to use Gerrit too and follow same process as contributors. They can approve their own contributions, but asking review from another contributor is a cool thing.
- A Gerrit contribution is automatically merged when all "acceptance flags" (Verification, review, IP) are OK.
Website can also be edited using Git and Gerrit process mentioned about for sources:
- Gerrit repo is https://git.eclipse.org/r/p/www.eclipse.org/swtbot.git
