I don't know Eclipse, but you probably have to have some top-level code
in your program.  As it stands, it's just an importable module, doing
nothing useful when you run it.

Add a call to test() to the end of the file, and it might do better. 
I'd also add a print statement, just to assure yourself that it's running.
