    Re: Code Coverage tools without instrumentation

    I did a search with Google and found several. Here are a few, you can search for more.

    On the Rational web site, one of the bullets for Rational PureCoverage for Windows says:

    "No source code or special builds required "

    On the MetroWerks site, one of the bullets for CodeWarrior Analysis Tools says:

    "No preprocessing or recompiling required - You save time examining your application"

    Thank you for your reply, the vendors that you mentioned seem to provide tools that perform a coverage analysis without the need to instrument the code.

    Regards,

    No, no ..
    This is wrong. A code coverage tool must instrument the code, otherwise it is totally meaningless.
    The difference is that PureCoverage for instance only performs statement coverage and for that purpose you only have to instrument the object-code, i.e. the source code itself is untouched.
    For other kinds of coverage, condition coverage etc. you must also instrument the source code.

    Best regards Björn

    MUMEGA & RATIONAL coverage tool are integrated into your IDE, no specific instrumentation is appear to testers, but it doesn't mean the instrumentation is missing, just ever thing is done behind you ...

    Thank you Björn,

    My mind was struggling to grapple with the concept of code coverage without instrumentation of the code.


    Yours in sanity,

    Try Paterson Technology's LiveCoverate (http://www.patersontech.com/) which uses "Runtime Instrumentation"

    Re: Code Coverage tools without instrumentation

    Hi..

    I think that Bjorn is right. Reason for being so is, if you will not instrument the code then on what basis the code Coverage analysis will be done. I am using Rational TestFactory and PureCoverage which requires Instrumentation. again there are 2 ways to instrument ie; Source Code and Object code, but you cannot neglect instrumentation.
    Anyway if you come across the please let me know.
