Quick Start

The Cascade, and Clepsydra, and Canteen tools in Volta provide “sandboxes” for quick testing and easy experimentation. To use them, locate the QuickTest.java file in a tool's directory, edit it as desired, then run the tool's quick-test target.

For example, to play in Cascade's sandbox, edit the cascade/test/src/QuickTest.java file, then execute the following commands, starting in the top-level Volta directory:

cd cascade
ant quick-test

You should then see some output relating to the QuickTest.java file. You should also find that various files have been generated, such as a DOT representation of the control flow.
