Java Negative test cases not adding up to the ECLEmma java code coverage

When I run sonar code coverage for a set of integration test cases then the code coverage gives high value with positive and valid test cases.
After that I add few more negative test cases for same set of java classes and the code coverage drops drastically by 10 to 20%.
I checked the surefire-reports and logs but I am not sure what is going wrong and how is it impacting.

I want to understand mechanism of Sonar reads sure fire reports.

Need more information.  If could be that there is something in the tests that you  added that changed the state of something.

You could also try commenting out the new rests to determine that was the actual cause. If it was,then reintroduce them one at a time.

code coverage values are erratic and inconsistent.
I wanted to understand how the sonar reads sure fire reports for any test cases(positive and negative).

This was due to 3 reasons:-
1) Sure Fire just lists if there was error or not. there was an error happening in the last method that was lowering the coverage count. We need to check target/classes/sure-fire report.

2) step to test the code coverage is.
mvn clean
mvn install without test case
mvn test // look that there is no error.
then when we restart sonar server
then look for issues in
mvn sonar:sonar.
