RE: [hyades-dev] Re: junit and derivatives

As I talk to our internal groups there is always yet another junit tool.  So do we build support for 3 or 4 specific tools or do we look into the possibility of supporting a more generic implementation allowing the user to plug-in the tool of their choice?

You might also want to consider HTMLUnit. There are partisans for each

I'd be glad to help, esp as Rational Developer gets past DCUT. Note
that abbot.swt has recently added GEF support: we can, e.g., drag nodes
off the palette, connect them, etc.
