General Package Tests

Before starting Eclipse

  • eclipse.ini: correct memory settings, any updates necessary?
  • configuration/config.ini: correct product (eclipse.product)?
  • plugins/org.eclipse.platform_*/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 - does it tell the user about the minimum required Java version?
  • Does the package start with the correct perspective?
  • Does it contain all necessary features?
    • Are there any errors in the Update Manager dialogs (or comparable 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.
