In your example on this page, you count default in conditional statements.
But it should not be, like else or try.
The assumption is that all three statements will contain the default execution.
Is it normal in PHPMD or is it a small mistake?
Oh and in fact, with your example, phpmd give me 11 :)
test.php:5 The method example() has a Cyclomatic Complexity of 11. The configured cyclomatic complexity threshold is 10.
