Interface Sensor

  • All Superinterfaces:

    public interface Sensor
    extends ProjectSensor

    A sensor is invoked once for each module of a project, starting from leaf modules. The sensor can parse a flat file, connect to a web server... Sensors are used to add measure and issues at file level.

    For example the Cobertura Sensor parses Cobertura report and saves the first-level of measures on files. For testing purpose you can use SensorContextTester, available in sonar-plugin-api-impl

    5.1, 7.6 use ProjectSensor instead to make your Sensor run only once per analysis, and no more once per module
