The project develops and maintains technologies for creating Android applications. This ranges from creating new Eclipse components and updating existing components that support Android development to a downloadable package that can be used for new developers and students. The project will maintain parity with current development trends in phones, tablets, smart watches, smart TVs, embedded Android, and future directions for Android development.
The project aims to develop and sustain the necessary tooling that will assist Cloud application lifecycle management operations, using open standards and languages, where appropriate. As aforementioned, these operations are classified into three distinct categories: (1) application description, (2) application deployment and (3) application monitoring. CAMF will follow the Eclipse OSGi plug-in based software architecture for each of the aforementioned operations and will inherit the same look-and-feel that Eclipse users are accustomed to. To guarantee the quality of the resulting product, the project will follow designated development cycles with rigorous code reviews, unit tests and release cycles.
Eclipse Titan is a TTCN-3 compilation and execution environment with an Eclipse-based IDE. The user of the tool can develop test cases, test execution logic and build the executable test suite for several platforms.
The development tooling landscape is changing and moving towards cloud-based developer tooling. While this movement is what everybody is talking about, a clear vision of how cloud-based developer tooling will look is still missing. Converting the existing desktop-based IDEs into something that runs in the browser seems to be the wrong approach. At the same time all of the cloud-based approaches seem to be fully disconnected from the existing desktop-based IDEs. They require that developers “move over” into the cloud for doing their development. Often they have to leave existing tools behind while the new cloud-based tooling is missing important functionality that people use every day in their existing desktop IDEs. This project bridges the gap.
Eclipse RCP Testing Tool allows create and execute test cases for Eclipse-based applications with minimal effort. The minimal required configuration of applications under test is as simple as browsing for a folder for binary AUTs or choosing a PDE launch configuration for AUTs from sources. A typical workflow to create a test case which should work in most cases looks like this: capture an application state, record test actions, add assertions. More complex activities including test parameterization, extracting common pieces of functionality into reusable actions, writing test cases manually before UI, and test case debugging are also available. Developers can extend the tool's functionality to add record/replay support of custom widgets and capture/apply support of custom aspects of an application state.
