6. Ant Task Reference
Installing the Clover Ant Tasks
Clover provides a set of Ant tasks to make project integration easy. To make these tasks available in your project build file, you need to:
load the '
cloverlib.xml' antlib by adding the following line to your build file:
<taskdef resource="cloverlib.xml" classpath="/path/to/clover.jar"/>
Make sure you change the above "
/path/to/clover.jar" to point directly to your clover.jar.
For further options, see also Ant Installation Options.
Installs Clover as the Ant
build.compiler. This means that Clover will be invoked whenever the Ant
<javac> is used, resulting in instrumented compilation.
Allows manual instrumentation of source files, for cases where the normal <
clover-setup> integration approach can't be used.
Produces coverage reports in different formats.
Generates a HTML report with default settings.
Generates a PDF report with default settings.
Records a coverage history point for use in historical coverage reports.
Generates a snapshot file used to assist Clover in optimizing the tests run in subsequent build.
Merges several Clover databases into one, to allow for combined reports to be generated.
Tests project/package code coverage against criteria, optionally failing the build if the criteria are not met.
Reports coverage results to the console at various levels.
Deletes the coverage database and/or associated coverage records.
This task imports several useful Ant targets that can help you quickly integrate Clover into many common Ant builds.
