Netty 3.0.0.CR3 was my first serious attempt to achieve high test coverage by writing many test cases in my life, and it was very exciting for me. I was able to fix more than a dozen bugs with them.
EclEmma was very helpful to review all the source code and to achieve high test coverage. The byte code instrumented by Emma ran much faster than other open source test coverage tools, yet providing reliable numbers.
Granted that both the API and implementation of Netty became stable enough, I’m going to focus on writing JavaDoc and user guide for the next week. The first GA is expected in a couple weeks – please stay tuned!
