There is a "maven cobertura plugin" and an "eclipse cobertura plugin" (otherwise known as eCobertura) but they are two DIFFERENT things. The "maven" one is for generating reports as part of maven goal execution, etc but it has nothing to do with providing menu entries in Eclipse. If that is what you are really after, you need to be looking at eCobertura.

Assuming that that is the case (please state if this assumption is incorrect), then there are installation instruction for eCobertura on the page that you linked above. Did you follow these? Were there any errors reported? Have you restarted Eclipse after the installation?

To double-check if a plugin has been installed correctly, go to "Help" -> "Install New Software..." and then on that page there should be a link to "What is already installed?" (probably somewhere toward the bottom right of the page). Click that link and another window opens to list all the plugins that are installed. Check to see if "eCobertura" is listed.

Ok, so you ARE talking about eCobertura. And sorry, I didn't pick up on the version of Eclipse that you are using. I have actually upgraded to Kepler yet, but this issue appears as though it could stop you from using it, at least for the moment...


It does mention that a fix has been committed, so if you were brave enough you may be able to check out the code and build yourself, otherwise you may have to just wait for a new release! :(
