Enabling "Code Coverage Analysis" on a Java Web Application running under Linux. Error on startup: "Could not find agent library sctmcc on the library path..."

I am trying to enable Code Coverage Analysis, using the Java Code Analysis Agent, for my Java web application running under Jetty, on a Linux environment, which is 64 bit. The version of Java I am using is 1.6, and is also 64-bit.

The error I am getting when starting up Jetty, with code coverage analysis enabled, is:

Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not find agent library sctmcc on the library path, with error: libsctmcc.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (Possible cause: architecture word width mismatch)

The working directory for my installation of Jetty is:


As per instructions I found here, I put "libsctmcc.so" (and also "libstcmcc64.so") in /opt/jetty (i.e. the working directory for Jetty)

In my Jetty startup script, I included the following JVM switch:

-agentlib:sctmcc=19129,coveragetype="line",coveragepath={"/home/central1/app/APP-INF/lib/com.central1.app.jar"},name="My Java App"

I noticed the error message changes, when 'libstcmcc64.so" isn't in /opt/jetty. Specifically, the part "(Possible cause: architecture word width mismatch)", does NOT get outputted. That indicates to me that the library is indeed being found, contrary to what the error message is suggesting.

Hi Quy,
