How to view HTML coverage report using Cobertura Maven plugin?

I want to generate and view a coverage report for a Java-Maven project.

I've added the following to

pom.xml
:

<reporting>
<plugins>
<plugin>
<groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>
<artifactId>cobertura-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>2.2</version>
<configuration>
<formats>
<format>html</format>
</formats>
</configuration>
</plugin>
</plugins>
</reporting>


When I run
mvn cobertura:cobertura
it builds successfully and reports to the console that
Cobertura Report generation was successful
but I can't find the report.

If I
cd
into
target/cobertura
I find a file called
cobertura.ser
but I have no idea what to do with it.

Edit: After re-examining the docs, thanks to Andreas_D, I've added the
<reporting>
tag, but get the same result.

Answer

Have a look at the plugin's documentation, there's an example. Pretty sure that you have to add a <reporting> element to actually produce the report.
