Hi, last week I downloaded trace compass 1.0 and started to experiment with the custom trace analysis that is supported. I have read and followed the instructions in the user guide here:|
My first goal was to get the example to work, so I downloaded the XML-files from the user guide and the xsd-files from the source code, here: org.eclipse.tracecompass.tmf.analysis.xml.core/src/org/eclipse/tracecompass/tmf/analysis/xml/core/module/xmlDefinition.xsd.
I started the stand-alone version of Trace compass and created a new empty project.
The first step I did was to import the XML analysis (xmlanalysis_example.xml), after some struggle with the xsd-files, I finally got it imported and I can see it in the workspace directory .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.tracecompass.tmf.analysis.xml.core/xml_files.
The second step I did was to open the trace file (trace4xmldoc.xml) and now things starts to go wrong. The xml file was added to my project but only as a "text-file", when I double click it I only get it to open in text mode. I read the user guide again to see if I have missed anything but I could not find anything new. I even read the developers guide to get any clues. After a while I stumble on the custom XML parser, maybe I need that to parse the XML trace file!? I experimented with some different XML parsers that I created and now I can get some data out of the trace XML file and into Trace compass. However the state provider that I imported in the first step does not seem to understand the data coming from my XML parser. So I get no graphs, no histogram, nothing... only the data from the XML trace file is shown.
So, what am I doing wrong? Do I need a custom XML parser to get the example to work? If so, how should it be setup?
