Return code

The ConsoleReporter.main() calls System.exit() and returns a non-zero value in case of error during report generation.

API Usage

ConsoleReporter provides a simple API that accepts an array of strings representing the command line arguments and returns an integer result code. The following fragment illustrates use of the API:

import com.atlassian.clover.reporters.console.ConsoleReporter;


    String [] cliArgs = { "-l", "method", "-t", "Method Coverage", "-i", "clover.db" };
    int result = ConsoleReporter.mainImpl(cliArgs);
    if (result != 0) {
           // problem during report generation


java com.atlassian.clover.reporters.console.ConsoleReporter -i clover.db

Reads coverage for the Clover database "clover.db", and produces a summary report to the console.


java com.atlassian.clover.reporters.console.ConsoleReporter -l "method" -t "Method Coverage" -i clover.db

Produces the same report as above, but includes method-level coverage information, and a report title.
