Clover support for native build mechanism

In our project, we are not using any build scripting mechanisms for the build process. We are building using native javac compiler. I want to know the process of integrating clover into the native build system for coverage. Is this possible? if yes, can you please provide me a sample for POC.

Clover works in 2 phases

* Source Code instrumentation (Clover also creates a sources map in a Clover db in that step)

-> Code compilation and execution is required for Clover to gather code coverage but it's not strictly related to Clover product

* Clover Report generation

So in case like yours you need to:

* Use Clover CLI to instrument all your sources

* Compile the instrumented sources with javac (like you do it now but remember to compile instrumented sources and add clover.jar to the classpath) 

* Run tests, execute your code, Make sure you shutdown JVM gracefully 

* Use  Clover CLI to generate reports 

* Enjoy the code coverage report 

That's all, we don't have any step by step documentation how to achieve that.
