The following happened on win 7, using eclipse version: Indigo Service Release 2
While writing status quo documenting tests for a legacy application with Pydev (current download), the code coverage view stopped updating.
Open views were package explorer view, PyUnit view and Code Coverage view open.
Part of the work done was a complete replacement of a file in the PyDev project by another file brought in from the outside (file system level copy, project explorer paste). This triggered a few import error reports, and once they had been dealt with, code coverage view was static.
Refresh, reconfiguring the folder-in-view, closing and reopening the project, closing and reopening eclipse all do nothing to alter the situation.
There is a workaround:
Make a new workspace
Create project infrastructure (source folders and views)
for each folder > mark all files in folder, press ctrl+c
in corresponding folder in new workspace, select paste from right-click-mouse menu
draw source folder into the Code Coverage view,
mark the “enable for new launches” button
run the unit tests and
May be there is a hint in that.
I have no idea if this is rooted in PyDev or in the code coverge plugin, and i don't know how to drill down any deeper.
My feeling is that somehow the project information gets screwed up by that file import, but that's just a thought.
If there is anything i should try or trace, please let me know (i will need rather detailed descriptions, but i am willing)
