General Package Tests

Before starting Eclipse

  • plugins/org.eclipse.epp.package.PACKAGENAME_*/plugin_customization.ini: correct default perspective (org.eclipse.ui/defaultPerspectiveId)?
  • linux-packages: executable bits set on eclipse?

Running Eclipse

  • Start the package with eclipse -consoleLog and watch the console for error messages.
  • Try to start the package with a wrong JVM version, e.g. 1.4 or GCJ - does it tell the user about the minimum required Java version?
  • Does the package start with the correct perspective? (defined in the plugin_customization.ini of the branding plugin)
  • Does it contain all necessary features?
    • Are there any errors in the p2 dialogs?
  • If the package contains the PDE feature:
    • Does any plugin view show any errors?
    • Bundles that cannot be started?
  • About Dialog:
    • Does it show up with the correct version and build ID?
    • Any suspicious entries in 'Feature Details' or 'Plug-in Details'?
    • 'Configuration Details' - is the JVM running with the correct settings?
  • Open the Preferences dialog. Does it show any suspicious entries?
  • Create a new project and test it.
  • Start the Eclipse Help. Does it contain the necessary help content?
  • Try to install something on top of the package with p2 from the Galileo repository and check that Eclipse can be restarted.
  • Use an older EPP package and try if it is possible to upgrade this with the new versions from the repositories
