You can find a ready-to-use target platform for development in the ''devtools/target-platforms'' folder. This target-platform is recommended since it contains all SWTBot dependencies. Beware, this target-platform is not used at build time, so you may experiment some differences. In such case, please report them as a bug. Enable it by opening it in IDE with the target definition editor, and click ''Set As Target Platform''.

Getting the source

You can use a git mirror of that repository:

git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/swtbot/org.eclipse.swtbot.git

You can also browse the repository using a web interface or even by monitoring the mirror of the repository on GitHub.

To contribute changes to the website, use this git repo: https://git.eclipse.org/c/www.eclipse.org/swtbot.git

IDE tips

Recommended Eclipse plugins

It's advised that you use the following plugins in Eclipse:

  • EGit
  • FindBugs
  • Configure JDT in "pedantic" mode (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 ...

Target Platforms

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.

Building SWTBot

  1. First Get the sources, as explained a few lines above.
  2. then mvn clean verify
  3. 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 install -P juno

Continuous integration

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

Sonar is used in order to track Code Quality:

Submit a contribution

Generalities

Patches and contributions are always welcome! There are many general articles about contributing to Eclipse projects:

Contributions list

Be notified

Provide a contribution using Gerrit

  1. 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:

  1. Make your change locally, and git commit them in your local repo. Commit message must contain Bug Number.
  2. when you're ready, git push your change to Gerrit using the following command: git push ssh://username@git.eclipse.org:29418/swtbot/org.eclipse.swtbot.git HEAD:refs/for/master
  3. After the push, log tells you about a URL which tracks the contribution

In any case

  1. 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:

  1. git checkout branch_you_want_to_edit
  2. Modify code
  3. git add your/modified/file1 your/modified/file2 ...
  4. git commit Put number of the bug you are working on at the beginning of commit message
  5. git format-patch HEAD^
  6. Attach generated patch to the bug you want to contribute to.

Committers

  • 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.

Editing website

Website can also be edited using Git and Gerrit process mentioned about for sources:
