Ramp down Policy
We use daily builds. No API changes after M6, no new features after M7. In the RC phase only bugs marked P2 or higher or severity major or higher will be fixed.
Unit tests are executed during the nightly build of Eclipse Scout RT and Eclipse Scout SDK. The test suites contain simple unit tests as well as GUI tests. The latter are based on Scout's testing support bundles which is built on top of java.awt.Robot. Therefore our GUI tests require a fully-fledged desktop environment. The tests are currently executed on BSI's infrastructure.
