This plugin allows you to use JavaNCSS build reporting tool.

Configuring the JavaNCSS Plugin

For a freestyle project, check the Java NCSS checkbox in the Post-build Actions section. Set the XML report pattern according to the instructions there. Optionally add health report thresholds (see below for details).

For a Maven type project, report data will be collected automatically when the javancss:report goal is used. Optionally check the Java NCSS checkbox in the Build Settings section to add health report thresholds (see below for details).

For health report thresholds, enter "healthy" and "unhealthy" thresholds for the selected metric. Build health will be 100% if the metric is better than the healthy threshold, and 0% (failed build) if worse than the unhealthy threshold. Health percentage is calculated on a linear scale when the metric falls between the two thresholds.
For the "% of lines that are comments" metric, use threshold values from 0 to 100.
For the "ratio of javadocs to classes and functions" metric, use threshold values from 0.0 to 1.0.
