That sounds very useful--is there one?
IIRC current Java GUI-automation tools (see
) work either by
a stuffing events in java.awt.EventQueue
b wrapping j.a.Robot
so the interface you describe could probably best serve SWT developers
if it was API-compatible with j.a.EventQueue--then we could presumably
just "plug it into" existing tooling.
