Given a collection of Self objects, Guru produces an equivalent set of objects in which there is no duplication of methods or certain types of expressions. To achieve this, it creates a replacement inheritance hierarchy and methods for factoring out expressions. The central motivation is that as systems evolve the design can deteriorate. Automatically refactoring a system can help a programmer restructure the system to reverse any deterioration. Guru has been developed in and for the object-centric language Self.
Component Templates for Assets and Artifacts is an Eclipse-based toolkit that allows developers to focus on business aspects of the development process instead of the technological. This Java-implemented toolkit automatically enforces all template-defined constraints, which makes it easier to create ready-to-use and reusable assets or artifacts.
SWTBot is a Java-based functional testing tool for testing SWT and Eclipse based applications. It provides APIs that are simple to read and write and hide the complexities involved with SWT and Eclipse. This makes it suitable for functional testing by everyone. A set of assertions that are useful for SWT are provided, and you can also use your own assertion framework. A recorder and driver are provided for recording and playing back tests along with Ant tasks so that you can run your builds from within CruiseControl or other CI tools.
