Lean Functional Testing (LeanFT) is a new functional test automation solution.  LeanFT enables advanced automation engineers and Dev-testers in Agile teams to leverage the standard development IDEs for test automation.  LeanFT integrates with Visual Studio and Eclipse, to create LeanFT-based tests, using modern programming languages (C# and Java respectively). In addition to its .Net and Java SDKs, LeanFT provides plugins for these IDEs, which suggest powerful tools like the Object Identification Center and Application models.

 

Because it is common to have multiple different Eclipse packages on the same machine, LeanFT supports the option of installing its Eclipse plugin so that it will  be included in each of the Eclipse packages deployed on that machine (e.g.: “Eclipse J2EE” and “Eclipse for Java developers”).

 

How to install LeanFT Eclipse plugin for several Eclipse IDE packages

In order to install LeanFT Eclipse plugin for several Eclipse IDE packages, run the LeanFT setup. After LeanFT is installed, copy the <path to LeanFT installation directory>\IDE\Eclipse\plugins folder's content into the <path to Eclipse IDE installation directory>\plugins folder for each of the Eclipse packages installed on your machine.

 

Eclipse Standard and Eclipse J2EE packages have prerequisites and the following plugins should be installed as well:

LeanFT 12.50: org.apache.commons.io, org.apache.commons.lang3 and com.google.code.gson

LeanFT 12.51: com.google.code.gson

 

How to install plugins for Eclipse:

  3. Select the required plugins
  4. Press Next and then Finish

 

Conclusion

As having multiple different Eclipse packages on the same machine is a common scenario, LeanFT now supports the option of installing its Eclipse plugin so that it will  be included in each of the Eclipse packages deployed on that machine, with a few simple steps.
