Registering a Emma report

The typical way to use the Emma plugin is by registering a Emma report in your project.xml:



emma This is the default goal. It compiles the project code with Emma, executes the unit tests and generate Emma reports by calling the emma:report goal.
emma:test Compiles the project code with Emma and executes the unit tests.
emma:test-single Execute a single unit test and view the test coverage result directly using the Emma Swing viewer. This is useful if you wish to quickly see the action that a single unit test has on the code it tests.
emma:report Generate Emma test coverage reports with Emma. There are 3 possible reports: HTML, XML or Text. Whether a report is generated is controller by the[report name] properties. The generated reports show exactly what lines of your code were exercised by your tests.
emma:on Activates Emma, which means that any other plugin calling the Ant javac task will find its code compiled with Emma. This is useful for example to Emma Cactus tests: maven emma:on cactus.
emma:off Deactivates Emma, resetting back the normal javac compiler.
