It is a verification metric of determining how many lines of code in a given binary are measured when we run test cases against it. By analyzing the result of the code coverage of the Test Methods, we can figure out how much code has been tested for the specified test method. It also provides valuable information to the developer(s) as if the code block is partially, completely or not at all tested which on the other hand helps them to include more test cases to solidify the various boundaries under measure.By knowing how many lines of code of a certain code block are touched, we can judge how well the code/function is tested.It also provides information about which lines of code have been executed and how long it took to execute them.
