Contributing to Eclipse

The book is great as long as you are using Eclipse 2.1. In adapting to doing TDD in Eclipse 3.1 you have to be aware of the many API changes. Also be aware that you are doing an RCP and not a "simple" plug-in. One thing is that the book introduces Perspective very late in the game yet in an RCP the Perceptive HAS to be initialized or the IViewPart.createPartControl() won't be called. Therefore the first thing to test is the Perspective and then the Views. Going through the API now. I already created one unit test for the view but it doestn't work because of the above complications. It is all in CVS just in case. Have to do some figuring it out.
