Chapter 7. Troubleshooting

7.1. JBoss Tattletale generates empty reports
7.2. JBoss Tattletale throws an OutOfMemoryException
7.3. I would like to implement a feature
7.4. How do I ?

JBoss Tattletale generates its reports based on Java archives and not source code. Make sure that sourcedir you specify when running JBoss Tattletale contains the Java archives (f.ex. .JAR files) that you need scanned.

JBoss Tattletale needs to process the information it gathers in memory, so you need to provide enough memory for that to happen. You can ajust the -Xmx parameter of the command line below if you are using Sun's Java Runtime Environment.

java -Xmx1024m -jar jboss-tattletale.jar <sourcedir> [<outputdir>]

So you have found an area where you are missing a feature and would like to submit a patch for it, great !

There are a couple of steps to get a feature included

First, you should create a new thread in our development forum where you describe the feature, its design and implementation.

Once there is an agreement on the feature and the design you should proceed with creating the patch.

To maximize your chances of getting the feature in the official build as soon as possible make sure that you run checkstyle to make sure that the code is correctly formatted:

ant clean checkstyle

when there are no errors, create a JIRA task (Feature) in our JIRA environment and attach the patch. See the developer guide for additional details.

Happy Coding !
