Default java code coverage tools

As far as I can tell, this is the state of Java code coverage tools on
Fedora 8... and it's not very good. If you know of something I'm missing,
please chime in.

Emma. [1] Development on the main tree seems to have stalled, but there seems
to be active development around the Eclipse plugin [2]. There was an attempt
to bring it into Fedora that failed [3], but it's listed as available
from JPackage. [4]

Cobertura. [5] Actively developed, no Eclipse plugin. Listed as available
from JPackage. [6]

TPTP. [7] Official Eclipse component. Not available in Fedora or JPackage.

If you packaged this, you'd be my hero (at least for the month of
February).

Sorry, but I doubt I'll be able to help out with that. What work has been made
on TPTP already, and what remains?

No work has been done on a TPTP package AFAIK. Coincidentally, I just
read an account of their currently horrible installation experience:

Way back in about Fedora 5 or 6 timeframe the profiler just worked (if you managed to install the C compiler compat stuff) using the built in agent controller.


In newer versions of Eclipse and Fedora the built in agent controller has been broken. The workaround is to install the external agent controller, and admittedly the instructions for doing so make it a bit of a pain.


To make matters worse, if you go to the preferences and run the 'test' to see if the built in controller works, it sometimes says it works (when it doesn't) or provides a rather useless error message.


Of all the plugins that aren't installed, this is my favorite vote for being a part of the core package.

I assume by "core package" you mean the "Fedora Eclipse" yum group?
Don't forget that *everything* is modular in Eclipse so we package
things as RPMs to match the upstream feature sets. Examples include:

eclipse-sdk matches the upstream SDK downloads
eclipse-platform matches the upstream Platform downloads
eclipse-cdt matches the upstream CDT downloads
... (or at least they *should*

In this case, TPTP would become eclipse-tptp and have its dependencies
enumerated properly. We'd probably need to resurrect eclipse-emf (or
some variant thereof as it's gone through a big re-organization upstream
since I last packaged it) and maybe even some other dependencies of
TPTP.

In all seriousness, I don't have time to commit to packaging TPTP but if
people are interested, I can offer help and guidance. That goes for any
other Eclipse plugin that people want. And if someone wants to help but
doesn't have the time or confidence to own something entirely, there are
a lot of base Eclipse SDK issues that need fixing. Oh, and not to
overwhelm, but it'd be cool to coordinate some of this stuff with the
other distros via linux-distros-dev@eclipse.org.

In conclusion, my door is always open. And by that I of course mean
that I'll respond to your mail
