Summary:

I am trying to run cobertura. I found a website which displays a for but I can't display it. I want to know how to display the form,

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,
I want to use cobertura for coverage. I followed the following link:



https://electric-cloud.com/plugins/directory/p/cobertura/



That link provides a EC-Cobertura.jar file through download. I think it creates a parameter for passing arguments to cobertura. I am trying to run EC-Cobertura.jar but its giving me error:

~/cobertura$ ls -l EC-Cobertura.jar

-rw-rw-r-- 1 zulfi zulfi 165174 Mar 8 17:53 EC-Cobertura.jar

:~/cobertura$ java -jar EC-Cobertura.jar

no main manifest attribute, in EC-Cobertura.jar

:~/cobertura$ sudo apt-get install binfmt-support

[sudo] password for zulfi:

binfmt-support is already the newest version (2.1.8-2).

binfmt-support set to manually installed.

:~/cobertura$ ./EC-Cobertura.jar

bash: ./EC-Cobertura.jar: Permission denied

:~/cobertura$ chmod a+rx EC-Cobertura.jar

zulfi@lc2530hz:~/cobertura$ ./EC-Cobertura.jar

no main manifest attribute, in /home/zulfi/cobertura/EC-Cobertura.jar

:~/cobertura$


I have already downloaded the cobertura and its installed on my ubuntu 18.04.
:~$ whereis cobertura-instrument

cobertura-instrument: /usr/bin/cobertura-instrument /usr/share/man/man1/cobertura-instrument.1.gz

:~$
And it has the same version as the tar file provides whose link is :



https://sourceforge.net/projects/cobertura/



provided in the link of the associated help button page:



:~$ cobertura-instrument -version

Cobertura 2.1.1 - GNU GPL License (NO WARRANTY) - See COPYRIGHT file

[INFO] Cobertura: Saved information on 0 classes.

[INFO] Cobertura: Saved information on 0 classes.

:~$




But the help file does not say anything about the jar file. I still don't know how to execute the jar file and how to display the form shown on the link:



http://downloads.electric-cloud.com/plugins/EC-Cobertura/EC-Cobertura_help.xhtml





Somebody please guide me how to display the form? What is the purpose of EC-Cobertura.jar in this connection.



Zulfi.

When there's no manifest then you have to run a java app via the java command.

$ java -cp <your_jar_file_path> xxx.yyy.zzz.<The_App_Name>

or

$ java -jar <your_jar_file_path> xxx.yyy.zzz.<The_App_Name>

The -cp adds the app's jar to the classpath that java searches. The xxx.yyy.zzz.<The_App_Name> is the class containing the app's main method. The java command will search for the xxx.yyy.zzz.<The_App_Name> in all jars in the classpath which then causes other classes to be loaded.

The reference below has other ways of building and/or running the jar file:
