I'm contributing to a plugin which depends on the git4idea plugin. I'd now like to write some basic tests but I absolutely have no idea where and how to start. I read the guides at http://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/basics/testing_plugins.html but, being honest, they are not much of a help to me.
As a very first basic test I'd like to achieve the following:
- Call an action provided by the plugin.
- Use existing methods (maybe of git4idea) to ensure that e.g. a branch was created.
Could you give me some advice or examples? I already looked at e.g. VcsPlatformTest() but I'm not sure if this is helpful or how I can include this in my testing project.
