Atlassian has released Clover 2.3.1, a $1200 payware test coverage tool. Clover modifies the source code to enable it to follow which statements are executed when, and keeps a running count of how many times each statement is executed during the test suite. Any statement that executes zero times is not being tested. I use Clover with Ant, but there's also an Eclipse plug-in. Clover can generate test coverage reports in XML, HTML, PDF, or via a Swing Viewer. Version 2.3.1 improves the integration with Maven, IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse, and Ant.
