If you're doing custom development with Clover, you've come to the right place.
Bamboo and Hudson users: Clover already has working plugins that integrate Clover into these products (see the 'Clover Plugins' section below). No additional programming is required for Bamboo or Hudson users to take advantage of Clover.
The Clover API is aimed at CI server vendors wishing to add support for Clover to their products, or users wishing to program new solutions for meshing Clover's Test Optimization with your test framework (see the 'Reference Documentation' section below).
These plugins allow customers using continuous integration servers to easily make use of Clover's advanced code coverage analysis, in a turnkey solution.
The Clover API also provides classes to optimise tests programatically. This may be necessary if you are using a custom testing framework or your tests are defined in JUnit TestSuites.
JSON Reference The JSON format is supported as an output type in Clover specifically to create integration opportunities with other applications. The JSON data from Clover is easy to manipulate programmatically, allowing innovative developers to use it for displaying or processing their coverage data in novel ways.
