What is Code Pulse?

Code Pulse is a real-time code coverage tool. It works by monitoring Java applications while they run, keeps track of coverage data, and shows you what's being called and when.

Quick Start

  1. Install Code Pulse
  2. Run Code Pulse
  3. Create a project in Code Pulse
  4. Connect your Java application to the project you created
  5. Watch as Code Pulse traces your application

If you're looking to test the water with a sample application, we recommend using the OWASP Webgoat or WAVSEP projects.
