Subject Re: Test coverage, was: Process and content for next release?
Date Wed, 06 Sep 2006 16:49:59 GMT
I've used Clover in the past and Cobertura since Dan mentioned it here a
while ago. Cobertura is really really easy and works today, just use mvn
cobertura:cobertura and it generates coverage reports in
target\site\cobertura. Thats so easy I'd really prefer this over Clover
unless Clover can also be done that easily. There's nothing stopping anyone
who prefers Clover to also use that themselves.

75% coverage (or even quite a bit higher for a 1.0 release) is a fine goal
but I think its a bit early to start excluding things from the next releases
for not reaching that percentage. I'd much prefer we focus things like
getting functional and integration testing frameworks in place first.
