Hi Sonar Team!
I have several related questions on the support for Jacoco support. For a short historical overview:
The oldest solution was the separated properties of
sonar.jacoco.itReportPath . These should not be used at all. sonar.jacoco.reportPaths (notice the ‘s’) is a trivial upgrade. This property is described both in the online docs, and also for the configuration page of the Java plugin inside the server. (assuming latest available versions)
sonar.jacoco.reportPaths is deprecated already. Does this mean it will not work at all in the soon-to-come Sonar 7 LTS version? Or will it still work, alongside with a visible warning on the project analysis page? Instead of that deprecated property supporting exec format, the new property for XML format is already suggested: sonar.coverage.jacoco.xmlReportPaths
some more comments on this Jacoco coverage reporting differently in Sonarcloud
sonar.coverage.jacoco.xmlReportPaths be represented in the Sonar server configuraiton menu?
I expect the new XML property to be configurable ( and anyway mentioned) from the configuration screen: Adminstration -> Configuration -> Java -> JaCoCo
Only the exec property is mentioned which is somewhat confusing.
Thanks a lot and cheers,
