Yet Another Code Coverage Rant

Instead of me ranting over why code coverage measurements can be good but in general are used in the wrong way; why don't I let somebody else do it for me...

This article explains pretty well how striving for a certain code coverage necessarily doesn't give you what you want; high quality code. Because if you measure code coverage all you are guaranteed to get is high code coverage...

However measuring it from time to time might be valuable to identify areas that need more testing.
