I looked into FLEXCover (http://code.google.com/p/flexcover/), which looks really great. Does anyone here use it?
My concern is that (from reading the setup documentation), that it is required that you have to modify the FLEX SDK, and recompile that into your application?
Is this true? To get FlexCover setup, I need the entire SDK embedded in my application? Say it isnt so???
"1. Create a copy of the Flex SDK that you will customize for Flexcover
Flexcover uses a customized version of the Flex compiler and also requires a special Flex framework library. To use flexcover you must first create a version of the Flex 3 SDK that has been modified to include these components. (It would be simpler if Flexcover could include a complete SDK that was already modified, but that file would be too large to be hosted on Google Code as a download.) Once you have created this modified SDK, you can freely copy the SDK to other machines without repeating the initial creation process.
To create the modified SDK, unzip a copy of the Flex 3.0 or Flex 3.2 SDKs into a directory on your computer that is separate from any existing Flex SDK installation you might have. For simplicity and predictability, we recommend that you download either Adobe Flex SDK 126.96.36.19994 or Adobe Flex SDK 188.8.131.522 with this version of Flexcover, because these are the exact Flex SDK versions that the Flexcover modifications are based on.
Howvever, you may use other SDKs if you wish. Other Flex 3 SDK distributions are available from the
Flex 3 SDK Downloads page, or you can modify a copy of some particular Flex 3 SDK version that you already have on hand (including the one that comes with Flex Builder 3).
For clarity, it's a very good idea to give this SDK directory a descriptive name, for example flexcover-sdk-3.0."
Is it safe to assume that nobody cares about Code Coverage in the FLEX world? LOL
I was under the assumption, hence the title of your posted, you were aware of Adobe ActionScript Code Coverage. But I am not sure if this will provide you the total number of lines of code. There is also FlexPMD and FlexMetrics. I don't know much about these tools other then Code Coverage. Code Coverage is a plug-in for Eclipse and you do not need to modify your SDK in order for it work.
Currently, opensource.adobe.com seems to be having problems serving. So you may need to search it via Google and retrieve the cached site. I hope that helps.
