"Testing: Early, Often and Automated" (Extreme Programmin Explained by KENT BECK)
The PDT team has accepted the XP () two principles to increase the cost-effectiveness of testing: double checking and the Defect Cost Increase.
We release the "PDT test framework" that helps us write unit tests for PDT in a very fast way.
"The sooner you find a defect, the cheaper it is to fix".
Unit tests for PDT plug-ins can be found under /gitroot/tools/org.eclipse.pdt/tests module. The convention is the following:
|Plug-in Name||Unit Test Plug-in Name|
Running Unit Tests
Each Unit Test plug-in has its own AllTests suite. For running the suite at once right click on it, then select: Run As -> JUnit Plug-in Test. Each test can be run independently in the same manner.See also: PDT/Testing Framework - PDTT
