Yes, but a little bit of basic Java knowleadge is required. Since the
test script generally doesn't need complex logic, I think it's a piece
of cake for you. In addition,I plan to develop some Eclipse plugins to
assist the user to write test case more easily.

It's enough. To write test case, we don't need the advanced Java
knowledge, e.g. thread, network, and J2EE. IMHO, Java is easier to
read and write than starbasic. Though I has been programming for long
time, I am frustrated to write Vcl TestTool script.
Maybe I am used to Java.
