+1 on the idea in general, obviously there's a few more details to work out yet. I have some similar concerns to Cédric but I guess we can address those as we go.

Cheers, Paul.

BTW, I met with a couple of SonarSource engineers last week in Geneva during a presentation at Geneva JUG.
The topic of code coverage with JaCoCo and Groovy came up. They told me a feature such as the one discussed in this thread would help them greatly in getting better code coverage numbers.

Cheers,
Andres

What goes up, must come down. Ask any system administrator.
There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
To understand recursion, we must first understand recursion.

You hit the nail right on the head Jochen wrt synthetic methods. And as you correctly pointed out, not all transformations need to be updated right away. I wanted to lay out a set of tasks we must take into consideration should this feature be accepted.

Unfortunately that annotation is coming in JDK9. We'll need something that can be used with JDK7

actually that would not be a problem. If the annotation is not found it is ignored by the java compiler. The source retention policy though is a very good reason not to use it. So we have to roll our own.

I am +1 on the idea in general.... doesn´t mean all transforms have to do it right away.
