15    
16     <h3>Can JSCoverage be used with <a href="http://www.jsunit.net/">JsUnit</a>?</h3>
17    
18     <p>
19     It is necessary to run JSCoverage in <dfn>inverted mode</dfn>. You will have to
20     modify JsUnit to launch JSCoverage.
21     </p>
22    
23     <p>
24     See the directory <code>doc/example-jsunit</code> for an example. It
25     contains a copy of JsUnit version 2.2alpha11, with the file
26     <code>jsunit/app/main-data.html</code> slightly modified to add a button
27     which launches JSCoverage. It also contains a simple unit test file <code>test.html</code>. You
28     can instrument this example as follows:
29     </p>
30    
31     <pre>
32     jscoverage --no-instrument=jsunit doc/example-jsunit doc/instrumented-jsunit
33     </pre>
34    
35     <p>
36     You can then run the <code>test.html</code> file in JsUnit's <code>jsunit/testRunner.html</code>.
37     The simplest way to do this is probably to copy the contents of <code>doc/instrumented-jsunit</code>
38     to the root of a web server and then access
39     <a href="http://127.0.0.1/jsunit/testRunner.html?testPage=http://127.0.0.1/test.html&amp;autorun=true">this URL</a>.
40     </p>
41    
42     <h3>I'm trying to load my code with the URL
43     <code>file:///C:/foo/bar/jscoverage.html?foo/bar.html</code>
44     and I'm getting all kinds of JavaScript errors.</h3>
45    
46     <p>
47     Internet Explorer 6 seems to have problems with a <code>file:</code> URL
48     that has a query string with a slash in it.
49     </p>
50     <p>
51     As a workaround:
52     </p>
53     <ul class="list">
54     <li>Place your files on a web server instead of loading them from the file system.
55     (<code>http:</code> URLs work fine.)
56     <li>Do not use a query string; enter your URL in the "URL" field in the "Browser" tab.
57     <li>Rearrange your directory structure so that <code>bar.html</code>
58     ends up in the same directory as <code>jscoverage.html</code>; then
59     you can use the URL
60     <code>file:///C:/foo/bar/jscoverage.html?bar.html</code>
61     with no slash in the query string.
62     <li>Use a different browser. (IE 7 seems to work.)
63     </ul>
64    
65     <h3>JSCoverage changes my cursor to a busy cursor, and it never changes back!</h3>
66    
67     <p>
68     Certain browsers (<i>e. g</i>., Internet Explorer 6, Opera, Safari) have trouble changing
69     the cursor. Try moving the mouse and your cursor should change back to normal.
70     </p>
71    
72     <p>
73     See the discussion <a href="http://groups.google.com/group/Google-Web-Toolkit/browse_thread/thread/631908bd63241136/783c307480f95d8c">here</a> for more information.
74     </p>
75    
76     <h3>JSCoverage hangs sometimes when rendering the coverage report.</h3>
77    
78     <p>
79     With Internet Explorer 6 (I think I see a pattern here), garbage collection can cause performance problems.
80     (More information <a href="http://ajaxian.com/archives/garbage-collection-in-ie6">here</a>.)
