    [ https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBTM-727?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12525392#action_12525392 ] 

Andrew Dinn commented on JBTM-727:

I have found another case where emma gives misleading stats about coverage which also relates to exception flow. It happens where there is a synchronized block which encloses an embedded method call:

public void foo()
  . . .
  synchronized (this) {
    fooMethod(1, "abc");

emma may indicate that the line with the brace which closes the synchronized block is only partially executed. This is because the compiler inserts a catchall handler block for any exception thrown by fooMethod which is responsible for calling monitorexit to match the monitorenter planted to implement the synchronization.

    aload 0
    atstore <n>
    ldc 1
    ldc "abc"
    invokevirtual "fooMethod"
    aload <n>
    goto ...
// catch all:
    aload <n>
// goto target

If the test code does not actually throw an exception then the catchall handler never gets executed. The line number associated with the first monitorexit, goto and second monitor exit is that of the line with the closing brace so this line only gets partial coverage.

> There are some class that emma says don't have coverage and yet there are tests that do cover them (and I have confirmed the methods get called). For instance ServerTopLevelOSIActionUnitTest which covers ServerOSITopLevelAction. The commit and rollback methods are invoked, yet emma misses them.
