News: Cortex Releases Clover 1.0 J2EE Code Coverage Tool

  1. Clover is an Ant-based Code Coverage tool that has been specifically designed with J2EE application testing in mind. Clover measures Method, Statement and Branch Coverage, and reports in XML, HTML or via a Swing GUI. Developers can use Clover's reports to iteratively improve their unit tests and expose bugs.

    Press Release
    ----------------------------
    Cortex is pleased to announce the commercial release of Clover, a Code Coverage Tool for Java.

    Clover is an Ant-based Code Coverage tool that has been specifically designed with J2EE application testing in mind. Clover integrates easily into complex builds, and does not require the specialised runtime that similar tools require. Clover measures Method, Statement and Branch Coverage, and reports in XML, HTML or via a Swing GUI. Developers can use Clover's reports to iteratively improve their unit tests and expose bugs.

    Clover came to life because of our frustration with other Code Coverage tools when testing in a J2EE environment. We've extensively tested Clover with Tomcat, Weblogic and JBoss. Our beta testers tell us they have used Clover successfully with WebSphere, Oracle 9i and others.

    A free 30 day evaluation of Clover is available at
    http://www.thecortex.net/clover

    Free licenses are available to Open Source projects on application.

    An example coverage report can be seen at

  2. I have found Clover to be a very nice tool. The HTML reports it generates are fantastic, especially when doing nightly build and testing of projects.
  3. Nice work!
    I have just integrated Clover into our Continuous Integration build system, (CruiseControl) that is currently controlling over 15 different projects.
    Clover is a very cool tool.
    Management are now a button click away from assessing which projects require more attention.
  4. I have been using Clover to ensure I have complete test coverage of critical business and framework classes.

    Dont leave home without it.
  5. If you are serious about testing, you need Clover.

    Without it, you are just guessing about whether code is tested or not.

    The reports and output from Clover are easy for everyone to understand and it was a breeze to integrate into Maven or Ant build processes.

    Keep up the good work Cortex!
  6. Clover is a fantastic tool. I couldn't agree more about the generated reports - they are fantastic.

    If you haven't taken a look at it then you've got rocks in your head (and kruft in your code, most likely).

  7. Clover makes code coverage fun. We used Clover to improve the coverage of our APIs. The support and turnaround time for the problems we faced using 0.6B was amazing to say the least. Clover enabled us to write more tests and make our code bullet proof.
