Here is my review for Section 1-5 of TS_71_Form

Code Generation

  • Inspector was merged with Navigator, so instructions should say “Navigator” everywhere it says “Inspector”.

  • Should generation of Bean Info be added to tests?

Test suite: Create forms from Templates 1.2 – “Popup” should be called “popup menu”.

Test suite: Code Generation of beans properties 2.1 – “Explorer” should be called “Projects Window”.

Test suite: Test of Generation Fully Qualified Names – This section mixes “Generate Full Classnames” and “FQN” as the same property, which is a bit confusing.

Component Inspector

  • Inspector is now merged with Navigator and shows “Navigator” as its title.

Test suite: Layouts category – Difficult to understand!

Test suite: Beans tests – Why is “Customizer and AWT” under this section?

Component Palette

  •  Component Navigator should be used instead of Component Inspector throughout the tests.

  •  There is no test for “Show small Icons/Show big Icons” on Palette.

Test suite: Component Palette: 1. Test Component Palette – This subsection should be moved down to “Test suite: Small Palette”

Test suite: Component Palette: 2.1 – There is no “Palette Manager” button on form designer toolbar.

Test suite: Component Palette: 4.2 – Menu item is “Button” not “JButton”.

Test suite: Component Palette: 7.2 – This should read “Select Show Item Names/Hide Item Names”.


  •  Where specs refer to the “insets property”  should be changed to “margins property” since “insets property” cannot be changed.

Form File Compatibility

  •  Explorer should be referred to as “Project Window”.
