    Default Testing a GUI

    I want to test my GUI, aside from JUnit testing and other formal testing techniques how can I simulate buttons being pressed, keyboard input etc. The only that springs to mind for me is using the Robots class though not sure if there is a better alternative.

    I have no personal experience, but you might try searching "java automated GUI testing" or similar. I think writing your own GUI test tool would be more trouble than it's worth, but I could be wrong.

    I'll leave it, I've left nearly all of the logic out of the GUI class anyway.
