Description Jesse Glick 2008-07-30 18:06:26 UTC
ProjectRunner has the ability to debug but not profile. This seems like an omission, since AFAIK these are very similar
structurally: you start the JVM with some special options but otherwise run the program normally.

Perhaps this is rather a problem in the Profiler, since for some reason that I have not yet figured out, it has a
completely different mechanism for running project actions than the debugger. Whatever the case, it does not appear to
be integrated with CoS at all. I am trying to figure out what would be needed for autoproject to be integrated with the
Profiler (one of the main selling points of the IDE to a typical autoproject user!), preferably making it work as much
as possible like run and debug, which already use ProjectRunner; profiler.j2se is much larger than I would have expected
and the purpose of most of the source is a mystery to me so far.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2008-08-27 05:26:43 UTC
A relatively small ProjectTypeProfiler in global lookup turned out to be sufficient to get basic profiler integration
working with automatic projects. In order to then tie this into CoS, I needed a small Ant script using
<translate-classpath>, which you can see in

Obviously for use in ProjectRunner this would need to be expanded with some additional properties.
