The Eclipse Testing Day 2012 will take place on 5th September 2012 from 8.30am to 5pm, followed by an evening reception

The day will be hosted in the Commundo Tagungshotel Darmstadt (the same venue as in 2010)

 About the Testing Day

This year will mark the third Eclipse Testing Day . The event is organised by BREDEX GmbH and the Eclipse Foundation and will take place over the course of one day. The focus is on testing with, for and at Eclipse.

Topics of interest include:

  1. Testing Eclipse applications
  2. Testing within the Eclipse Ecosystem
  3. Testing on Eclipse Projects
  4. Design for testability in Eclipse
  5. Case studies of testing projects
  6. Eclipse tooling and technology for the test process
  7. Continuous integration and testing for Eclipse applications

The topic for this year's testing day is "Testing and Beyond". The program committee are putting together a format that will consist of traditional talks on the topics above, as well as a set of lightning talks from areas "beyond" testing and a panel discussion with experts from the Eclipse and testing communities.
