Source code insertion overview

Source code insertion (SCI) technology uses instrumentation techniques that automatically adds special code to the source files under analysis. After compilation, execution of the code produces SCI dump data for the selected runtime analysis or automated testing features.

Rational® Test RealTime makes extensive use of source code insertion technology to transparently produce test and analysis reports on both native and embedded target platforms.
