How do I run Clover elsewhere? Can't find files.

I'm trying to build a test bed for our Integration Tests such that we can deploy a Clover-built version of a service and run various integration tests on it, shut it down, and then generate a report.

In theory, this works.  But, Clover is insisting that the clover.db be in the path that it was for the built binary.  Additionally, it wants to have access to that same exact directory to write the clover runtime files (makes sense, I guess).

We could hack this up (since all of our services follow the same pattern), but it breaks the encapsulation paradigm of having the clover.db and clover output managed with the service installation.

But, otherwise, looks like this solution is going to work for us.

Thanks for any help - Howie

Rubber duck: -Dclover.initstring.basedir="/whatever/i/want/"

Hi Howard,

You can use:

  • -Dclover.initstring=/path/to/clover.db - for single databse
  • -Dclover.initstring=/path/to/folder - for multiple databases, you have to keep relative paths

As well as change where clover.db is produced during code compilation:

  •  use an absolute path
  •  use a single database instead of many
