Build and Installation
rv-monitor builds with maven (3.6 or newer), which will download other Java dependencies.
To build, run the command
This puts the compiled tools in the directory target/release/rv-monitor You can move that directory elsewhere if you do not want to keep the source code unpacked. For convenience, please add target/release/rv-monitor/bin to your PATH.
Command Line Basics
To call rv-monitor with ease, please add RV-Monitor/bin to your PATH!
The rv-monitor script has the following usage:
rv-monitor [-v] [-d <target directory>] <specification file or dir> -v option is verbose mode -d option is used to specify the target directory where the resulting java code will be saved. It is optional.
For more options, type rv-monitor or rv-monitor -h
Before trying any examples, please ensure you’ve added the RV-Monitor/bin directory to your PATH and the RV-Monitor Runtime Library, as well as your current directory in your Java CLASSPATH.
The RV-Monitor Runtime Library is provided in this package in the rv-monitor/lib directory. A typical value of this is:
In Windows, rv-monitor\lib\rv-monitor-rt.jar
In Linux and Mac, rv-monitor/lib/rv-monitor-rt.jar
Add this to the left end of the CLASSPATH followed by
;. (in Windows) or
(in Linux and Mac). The second part (
:. i.e. this directory) is for ease
This ensures easy use of 1) rv-monitor to generate monitoring libraries, 2) javac to compile the libraries together with your instrumented program, and 3) java to run the code in all the examples.
Note: for setting the classpath to already existing classpath you may want to use %CLASSPATH% (in Windows) or $CLASSPATH (in Linux and Mac). Similarly for PATH. e.g. CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:rv-monitor/lib/rv-monitor-rt.jar:.
To get started, here’s an example of monitoring via context free grammar.
In RV-Monitor/examples/java/CFG/HasNext, we call: $ rv-monitor rvm/HasNext.rvm $ javac rvm/HasNextRuntimeMonitor.java HasNext_1/HasNext_1.java $ java HasNext_1.HasNext_1
