Did you ever use a coverage tool that was expensive, difficult to configure or had only some very indirect way of feedback? Those are tools for managers, not for developers.

If you are a developer and know what I mean, you might just be right with Coverlipse.

Coverlipse at a glance

Coverlipse is an Eclipse plugin that visualizes the code coverage of JUnit Tests. It is unique for it integrates seamlessly in Eclipse. The coverage results are given directly after a JUnit run. This makes it the perfect tool for developers to recognize their tests fullfil their task. Its features are:

  • All Uses Coverage
  • Block Coverage (also known as Statement Coverage)
  • Branch Coverage (Not so soon to come)
  • Just one test run is needed for evaluation of all coverage criterias
  • No configuration methods to learn - the configuration is done the same way as normal JUnit runs in Eclipse.
  • Easy way to include/exclude packages from the test
  • Direct feedback in the Eclipse Java Editor
  • Explanation of the results in specialized views

Feel this might be your tool? Check out the screenshot section then, or just download coverlipse.
