The Multi-Touch Explorer Environment (MTEE) is a tool to aid developers during the production of multi-touch enabled applications. The MTEE tool integrates into the Eclipse IDE and can be used to record and playback user interactions with the program, compare sessions of recorded user interactions and investigate the evolution of the program behaviour. The tool presented in this thesis focuses on the Eclipse IDE and Multi-Touch for Java framework, as they are tools used by both Students and Professional developers. It is demonstrated that the Multi-Touch Explorer Environment can be integrated seamlessly into the Eclipse IDE. It is also demonstrated that the MTEE tool can be used to profile the user’s program with little impact on the performance of both the system or the program itself.
