Integrate RKTracer with ANT build and generate code coverage

You need to build and test the application with ANT build. Ensure that ANT installation in the system path. To generate code coverage for the ANT-based application in both Windows and Linux, you need to prefix rktracer to the ANT build command.

ant clean compile jar

  TO

 rktracer -v ant clean compile jar

RKTracer tool makes internal adjustments to ANT  build to instrument all the source files compiled at build time. By default, rktracer instruments for multiple-condition code coverage, and you see the following code coverage information in the HTML report.

  • Function Coverage
  • Line Coverage 
  • Statement Coverage
  • Multi-Condition Code Coverage

Example ANT build

Step 1: Enable RKTracer Tool

ant clean compile jar

  TO

 rktracer -v ant clean compile jar

  • RKTracer instruments the java source file with “c:\rktracer/lib/librklij-x86_64-w64-mingw32.exe ” and writes the instrumented file to the “prime.java” file in a preprocessed directory. Also, it stores the metadata, structure of instrumentation, and copy of source file content in JSON file. The tool will refer rktracer.config for internal configuration at the time of instrumentation.
  • RKTracer automatically adds the runtime library to ANT installation.

 

Step 2: Test instrumented application. 

You can do unit testing/functional testing on the instrumented application. In this case, it’s unit testing.

Post-testing, the RKTracer tool will save coverage data to the rk-coverage.txt file. 

Step 3: Generate Code Coverage HTML reports.

Once you have the rk-coverage.txt file, you need to run the command “rkresults” to generate HTML reports. Ensure that you run the “rkresults” command in the application root folder or where you have the “rktracer” folder generated at the time of build/Instrumentation.

 

 

rkresults command will search coverage data file “rk-coverage.txt” and map with JSON files (generated during instrumentation) in the rktracer folder and generate the HTML reports. You can manually open the HTML report using index.html.

 

Generate code coverage for selected functions/files/folder

Generate coverage reports  for the selected folders

C:\project\sound\drivers\base\power\

C:\project\sound\drivers\base\power\firmware_loader\

C:\project\sound\drivers\core\

C:\project\sound\security\keys\

C:\project\sound\security\lockdown\

 

Suppose you need code coverage for source files from three different folders, i.e., core, keys, power, and ignore coverage for folders firmware_loader and lockdown. Edit rktracer.config in the RKTracer installation folder and go to the end of the file add the following information. 

ignore *.java

instrument */power/* */core/* */keys/*

never */firmware_loader/* */lockdown/*

 

ignore *.java = Ignores all Java source files from instrumentation

Instrument = Instrument source files from given folders

never = ignore selected folder  

        

Generate coverage reports only for selected functions from three different files.

fun_X() in source-file-X 

fun_Y() in source-file-Y

fun_Z() in source-file-Z

Suppose you need code coverage for selected functions from three different files. Edit rktracer.config in the RKTracer installation folder and go to the end of the file and set the following variables as shown below.  

ignore *.java

instrument *source-file-X.java *source-file-Y.java *source-file-Z.java

function-ignore *

function-instrument fun_X() fun_Y() fun_Z()

 

ignore *.java = Ignore all Java programming source files

instrument *file-X.java *file-Y.java *file-Z.java = Instrument only these three source files.

function-ignore * = Then ignore all functions in the above three files.

function-instrument fun_X() fun_Y() fun_Z() = Don’t ignore these three functions from these three files from instrumentation.
