When it comes to UI testing of Eclipse plug-ins and RCP applications, one usually looks first in the open source project SWTBot or Jubula. However, there are alternatives and different project set-ups and products have very different requirements, when it comes to UI testing. I recently evaluated a few alternatives including SWTBot, Jubula, WindowTester and Squish. All of them have their specific advantages and disadvantages. However, I got really impressed by the UI testing tool Q7. Q7 uses a very different approach than SWTBot or Jubula. I created a tutorial describing all basic steps to get started with Q7. It also should give you a good impression on how Q7 works.
