The Coverage Navigator provides a launching point for common coverage tasks including open/deletion/creation of Coverage Packages. Other reports and operations can be added to this navigator through extension points. (see Developer's Guide)

The Coverage Editor is the central interface for the user to import, save, disposition and report coverage for a project. It is made up of a number of tabs providing these functions.
Displays roll-up metrics of coverage items stored in Coverage Package or Coverage Import. Overview can be printed or a Detailed Coverage Report can be generated by selecting the appropriate action on the top right of this tab.
Coverage Items Tab
This tab allows the searching and navigation of currently stored Coverage Units and Coverage Items. By selecting "Search", the corresponding coverage will show in the table based on whatever search criteria has been entered at the top of the tab. If nothing is entered, the top level coverage folders will be shown.
The Coverage Table is used throughout the Coverage application and allows for sorting, filtering and display of information useful for the current role of the user. These columns use the generic XViewer widget which allows for multi-column sorting, column customization and reporting.
Coverage Work Product Tab
While the Coverage Editor provides a way to track and disposition coverage results over time, there is still the need to track changes to work products based on the disposition results. Coverage provides this through tight integration with OSEE's Action Tracking System.
This tab provides the ability to relate the ATS Actions that have been written to track changes to Work Products to the Coverage Package. Once this is done, tasks can be created for any number of coverage items through the Coverage Items Tab.
The Import Tab allows for importing of Coverage results into the Coverage Application. Coverage Import is done by programming a Coverage Import that bridges external coverage tool results and the OSEE Coverage application. By selecting the corresponding "Import Blam" (see Developer's Guide), the user can enter in the fields necessary to import coverage to a Coverage Import and ultimately persist the data in a Coverage Package.
After a successful import, three more tabs will appear: Import Overview, Import Items (x) and Import Merge that will aid the user in importing the first results and successively importing changes into a Coverage Package
Import Overview Tab
Will provide an Overview of the Imported coverage results that are to be stored or merged into an existing Coverage Package
Import Items (x) Tab
Will provide the same searching and navigating as the Coverage Items tab except the data is specific to the current import.
Import Merge Tab
This tab will aid the user in performing the first import or merging successive imports. The tab is broken into two tables. The left is the Coverage Package table that shows the already imported coverage items. It works off the same "Search" capabilities as the Coverage Items Tab
- Import Action - will store the checked import items into the currently open Coverage Package
- Show Merge Details Action - will display the merge details for the selected import row. This will aid the user in determining what the differences are between the already imported data and the new import
- Link with Import Action - when selecting an import item from the "Import Table", this action will open the matching item, if any, in the Coverage Package table that matches
