I am trying to use javaNCSS
http://www.kclee.de/clemens/java/javancss/
to get the number of classes, methods, comments etc of classes in various packages. i can do it for 1 package at a time such as

E:\Test\javancss21.41>.\bin\javancss -gui pack1\pack2\pack3\main\*.java

It gives me the metrics for pack1\pack2\pack3\main package. But I have number of other packages such as

pack1\pack2\abc
pack1\pack2\xyz
pack1\pack2\abc\pack4

etc.
Will I have to write seperate commands to find the metrics for all the packages or is there a way to do it with one command.

pack1 is the root pack for the application. I am using windows

There is a way to do with oen command, just pass it in the command line options:

E:\Test\javancss21.41>.\bin\javancss -gui pack1\pack2\pack3\main\*.java blabla\*.java ...

and inside your main method just read them using the arguments[] parameter.

String firstPackage = args[0];
String secondPackage = args[1];

Alternatively if you know the path you can do it recursively in your code. Here is an exampel of how to read files recursively:

Sorry, didn't get it.
My main method has nothing to do with the calculation of metrices. The metrices are calcualted by java NCSS

>>E:\Test\javancss21.41>.\bin\javancss -gui pack1\pack2\pack3\main\*.java

write these things in a batch or ant build file.

Do you have access to the source code? If yes you can find out how you can do it (if at all).

Can you take a look to see how it reads the input?

you were right, it is traversing through all the parameter. So multiple parameters can be specified.
thanks
