-===== MoDeC Basic Uses ===== +
- +
-Steps to gather execution traces of some target program. +
- +
-(1) Instrument the bytecode of the target program, using +
-"​modec.util.Instrumentor.instrumentClasses(String)",​ see examples in +
-"​modec.util.Instrumentor.main(String[])"​. The input of the +
-"​instrumentClasses"​ method is a file describing:​ +
-    - The path to the byecode classes of the target program. +
-    - The path to the folder where to store the instrumented bytecodes. +
-    - The path to the libraries required by the target program (if any). +
-    - The name of the file of the execution traces. +
-    - The fully qualified name of the "​main"​ class of the target program. +
-    - A list of paths to the Java class files to instrument, relative to the first path above. +
-See for a complete example "MoDeC Bytecode Instrumentation +
-Tests/Input Files/​Evaluation of ArgoUML v0.19.8.txt"​. +
- +
-The list of paths to the Java class files to instrument can be +
-generated using +
-"​modec.tool.helper.ClassFileListGenerator.main(String[])"​. +
- +
-(2) Execute the instrumented target program, using +
-"modec.tool.Invoker.invokeMainClass(String)", see examples in +
-"modec.tool.Invoker.main(String[])". Running the "​Invoker" ​will +
-launch the instrumented target program and open a new window. The +
-new window shows only one button and a text field, used to insert +
-marks (also called tags) at any user-chosen appropriate moment in +
-the collected execution traces, for example before and after +
-executing some particular feature.+
