Clover with Grails 2.3.5

Does Clover work with Grails 2.3.5? Are there any issues?

The Grails version 2.3.5 has introduced several changes in a way how the framework works, so you might encounter some issues with a Clover:

1) Build with Clover fails with "No such property: testTargetPatterns".

This property has been removed in Grails 2.3.5. You shall upgrade your Grails Clover Plugin to version 3.2.2 or later which has a fix for it (CLOV-1396).

2) Integration tests are not being instrumented by Clover.

Grails 2.3.5 has a new GrailsIntegrationTestCompiler and a new way how GrailsTestRunner works. Upgrade your Grails Clover Plugin to version 3.2.2 or later which has a support for it (CLOV-1432).

3) Unable to instrument code when Clover plugin is being installed.

Grails 2.3.5 does not resolve transitive plugin dependencies during installation of a plugin. This happens only once, at the time when a plugin is being installed; in next build(s) a missing dependencies will be downloaded and added to a class path.

As a consequence, your first attempt to run "grails compile/test-app -clover.on" might fail. Solution: add a dependency to com.cenqua.clover:clover in BuildConfig.groovy. See

Note: dependency resolution works correctly in Grails 2.2.0-2.3.4.

4) Automatic Clover integration with Grails project fails in Bamboo.

Grails 2.3.5 no longer supports the installation of a plugin using the 'grails install-plugin' command. As Bamboo Clover Plugin uses this command to automatically integrate Clover, it will not work with Grails 2.3.5 or later.

In a build log you can find a message like:

grails install-plugin clover

| Warning
Since Grails 2.3, it is no longer possible to install plugins using the install-plugin command.
Plugins must be declared in the grails-app/conf/BuildConfig.groovy file.

Example:
grails.project.dependency.resolution = {
   ...
   plugins {
      compile ":clover:3.2.2"
   }
}

Additionally, add these custom repositories to the "repositories" block:
   https://maven.atlassian.com/public/
   https://maven.atlassian.com/public-snapshot/
   mavenCentral()

Workaround:

Use manual Clover integration.

Hi, could you please try running a build without the fork?
