Basic Configuration

The recommended basic configuration is as follows.

<project>
  ...  
  <reporting>
    <plugins>
      ...
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>

        <version>2.6</version>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </reporting>
</project>

Configuring Instrumentation

The plugin has an instrumentation configuration element which can be used to customize the instrumentation done within Cobertura.

Example:

<project>
  ...
  <build>
    ...
    <plugins>
      ...
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>
        <artifactId>cobertura-maven-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>2.6</version>
        <configuration>
          <instrumentation>
            <ignores>
              <ignore>com.example.boringcode.*</ignore>
            </ignores>
            <excludes>
              <exclude>com/example/dullcode/**/*.class</exclude>
              <exclude>com/example/**/*Test.class</exclude>
            </excludes>
          </instrumentation>
        </configuration>
        <executions>
          <execution>
            <goals>
              <goal>clean</goal>
            </goals>
          </execution>
        </executions>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </build>
</project>

Configuring Check

The plugin can check the post-testing coverage percentages to ensure a valid level of test coverage.

<project>
  ...
  <build>
    ...
    <plugins>
      ...
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>
        <artifactId>cobertura-maven-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>2.6</version>
        <configuration>
          <check>
            <branchRate>85</branchRate>
            <lineRate>85</lineRate>
            <haltOnFailure>true</haltOnFailure>
            <totalBranchRate>85</totalBranchRate>
            <totalLineRate>85</totalLineRate>
            <packageLineRate>85</packageLineRate>
            <packageBranchRate>85</packageBranchRate>
            <regexes>
              <regex>
                <pattern>com.example.reallyimportant.*</pattern>
                <branchRate>90</branchRate>
                <lineRate>80</lineRate>
              </regex>
              <regex>
                <pattern>com.example.boringcode.*</pattern>
                <branchRate>40</branchRate>
                <lineRate>30</lineRate>
              </regex>
            </regexes>
          </check>
        </configuration>
        <executions>
          <execution>
            <goals>
              <goal>clean</goal>
              <goal>check</goal>
            </goals>
          </execution>
