Running Automated Tests with PDE Build

In a previous post, I provided a set of projects that you could use to get a sample build running quickly. The idea was that getting your first build running is half the battle. From that point on, you can make small, incremental changes to accomplish what you like.

A common request I’ve received, though, is to provide a similar sample build that includes the running of JUnits using the Eclipse Test Framework. Well here it is! Just download and import the sample projects, and follow the directions in the included readme.txt file.

Note: If you want to run this sample build using Eclipse 3.2, you’ll need to work around a PDE Build defect. For instructions on how to do this, check out the “Problems parsing feature file in a product build” section on the PDE Build wiki page.
