Tracing code coverage tools in Rational Application Developer

Technote (troubleshooting)


I am experiencing issues with code coverage tools in Rational Application Developer and want to collect debug traces to submit to Rational support.


For information on how to enable tracing in Rational Application Developer, see How to trace Rational Application Developer.

Resolving the problem

To collect diagnostic data for code coverage integration with J2EE servers, add the following strings in the .options file:

# Collectively disables all coverage on server tracing options = true

# Trace the "Code Coverage > Reset coverage statistics" UI action = true

# Trace the periodic refresh of coverage data = true

# Trace the launching of servers in profiling mode = true

# Trace the interaction with the Agent Controller during coverage
# launch and periodic refresh = true

# Trace code coverage launch configuration on WAS servers = true
