Creating a runtime analysis application node

The Runtime Analysis Wizard helps you create a new application node in the Project Explorer. Basically, an application node represents the build of your C, C++, Ada or Java source code, which is very similar to most other integrated development environments (IDE). You can actually use this graphical user interface as your primary IDE.

Once you have created your application node, you simply add the options required to run any of the runtime analysis features:

To create an application node with the Runtime Analysis Wizard:

  1. Use the Start Page or the File menu to open or create a project.

  2. Ensure that the correct Configuration is selected in the Configuration box.

  3. On the Start Page, select Activities and choose the Runtime Analysis activity.

  4. The Application Files page opens. Use the Add and Remove buttons to build a list of source files and header files (for C and C++) to add to your project.

The Configuration Settings button allows you to override the default Configuration Settings.
Use the
Move Up and Move Down buttons to change the order in which files appear in the application node, and subsequently are compiled.
Use the
Remove button to remove files from the selection.

Click Next to continue.

  1. Select the C procedures and functions, C++ or Java classes or Ada units that you want to analyze.

Use the Select File and Deselect File buttons to specify the files that contain the components that you want to analyze. The Select All and Deselect All buttons to select or clear all components.

Click Next to continue.

  1. If you are creating a Java application node, set the basic settings that are required for the program to compile:

Click Next to continue.

  1. Enter a name for the application node.

By default, the new application node inherits Configuration Settings from the current project. If necessary, click Settings to access the Configuration Settings dialog box. This allows you to change any particular settings for the new application node as well as its contents.

Click Next to continue.

  1. In the Summary page, check that all the parameters are correct, and click Finish.

The wizard creates an application node that includes all of the associated source files.

You can now select your build options to apply any of the runtime analysis tools to the application under analysis.
