      Description



      Name: dkR10031 Date: 06/25/2003



      Current implementation of the Jcov tool expects that
      result coverage data must be saved to the one result
      file. However, instrumented application may be very
      large and complex and saving of the result coverage
      data to one file may be impossible since file
      system, or operational system, or security restrictions.

      Another reason to distribute result data is following
      situation: any user don't know class which should
      be analyzed for coverage before running or before the
      end of execution of application and application is
      very large (~10 000 classes). For current implementation
      user should not use any filter and should gather all
      coverage data to a very big file. After that he should
      load this big file to the GUI and should work with all
      coverage data although he already know which one class
      should be analyzed.

      It makes sense to distribute the result coverage data
      by the following way: save coverage data to the files
      which have names constructed by adding the extension '.jcov'
      to the class names (for example, the coverage data file
      Test.jcov is for Test class). In this case for the
      described situation, user can find needed jcov file
      using standard 'find' command line utility and load
      to the GUI only needed coverage data.

      Also it makes sense put coverage data for the class
      to the directory there classfile with this class is
      located.
