Features: Expandability

CodeCover is highly expandable. And because it's OpenSource, everybody benefits from enhancements. To expand CodeCover, you just need to write a plugin. The following three kinds of plugins exist:


CodeCover is shipped with an instrumenter for java and cobol, two languages with very little in common. So you see, there is nothing that prevents you from writing a plugin for your favorite programming language.


CodeCover is shipped with four coverage metrics. But what if you need another one? Or are interested in a static metric as McCabe? You just expand CodeCover et voil´┐Ż: you have what you want.


Bored of these text-based reports? Need PDFs, DOCs, want to write to a database? Write a new report generator and plug it into CodeCover!
