Application monitoring

With HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE you can monitor the global variables of cyclic executive applications.

The monitoring feature is available from HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE v8.3.1. It applies to cyclic executive applications for software integration testing. A cyclic application is a long running program. It contains global variables that read input data and set output data. With HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE monitoring feature, you can examine the global variables usage while your application is running.

Monitoring cyclic executive applications is an alternative to unit testing and software integration testing where only one file of the application is tested (unit testing) or a collection of files is tested (software integration testing), the other files are stubbed. With HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE monitoring feature, you can test all the files of your application. You can manually modify the input global variables in the monitoring view and select the output variables that HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE displays in a graph so that you can observe the behavior of the application when the input values change.

To be able to monitor your application with HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE, you must complete prerequisites tasks. See Prerequisites to monitoring applications.
