When executing UI tests, such as SWTBot tests, when a test fails some popups might stay open and cause subsequent tests to fail. Even worse, the whole test suite execution can take longer than usual because all the following tests might fail after waiting for a timeout (of 5 seconds by default). It will also kill the visibility of the scope of impacted components.

I recently had the opportunity to see a presentation about NetBeans RCP given by Geertjan Wielenga at AlpesJUG, and to chat with the speaker afterwards. We had an interesting discussion about how NetBeans RCP and Eclipse RCP compare to each other.
