Is there any consideration for supporting statistics of incremental code coverage in java?
I recently modified jacoco-plugin to achieve this goal. I modified jacoco-core and rebuilt. jar, and made no side-effect modifications on jacoco-plugin to achieve this goal.
So I think this approach is feasible, and only statistical incremental code is very useful for developers or testers, which allows them to focus on the code blocks that need the most attention. In China, fast-paced code changes make us more dependent on this feature.
If the developers of jacoco-plugin are willing to support this feature, I would be very grateful and would like to share our team's current practices in this area.
