Issues with Clover on maven parallel builds

Does Clover support parallel builds for maven?  This is clover 4.1.1 (I just downloaded it today) and maven version info is:

mvn -version
Apache Maven 3.3.9 (bb52d8502b132ec0a5a3f4c09453c07478323dc5; 2015-11-10T08:41:47-08:00)
Maven home: /usr/local/Cellar/maven/3.3.9/libexec
Java version: 1.8.0_74, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_74.jdk/Contents/Home/jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "mac os x", version: "10.11.3", arch: "x86_64", family: "mac"

If I do: mvn -T 1C clean clover:setup test clover:aggregate clover:clover

I get various issues depending on the run such as:

  • Failed to execute goal com.atlassian.maven.plugins:clover-maven-plugin:4.1.1:setup (default-cli) on project woozle: Execution default-cli of goal com.atlassian.maven.plugins:clover-maven-plugin:4.1.1:setup failed. ConcurrentModificationException

A little more info with the maven debug flag turned on:

Hi Nathan,

 

Clover does not support parallel compilation. So you can not use any of:

  • parallel build option in Maven,
  • <parallel> task in Ant or
  • parallel build in IDEA 12+ (Settings > Build > Compiler)

 

There are few technical issues which are blockers now:

  • locking the same database file by multiple threads/processes
  • parallel writing to the same database file
  • tracking per-test code coverage for tests executing in parallel
