I have a case where I need to run the automation tests on parallel machines. Is there anyway by which I can merge the 4 cloverMerge.db from different machines and create a report out of that merged db?
I'm not sure if I understand correctly what you're asking about, so as far it goes about managing your clover.db files on different machines and modules there's couple of things coming to my mind:
On the other hand if you're asking how to get distributed per test coverage from all machines I think here's an tutorial for you (keep in mind this will work only with supported testing frameworks):
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
Grzegorz, thanks for you answer. I didn't get exactly what you meant by "you can find clover.db files for all of your modules via find command, compress it (i.e via tar.gz ) and then sync only one file between 3 machines"? My scenario is machine1, machine2 and machine3 have three different instances of source code. I have to do it this way because I run regression runs in chunks of tests on each independent machine. So is there an easy way to have 1 clover report rather than 3 reports for three independent instances. Hope I made it little clearer..
As far as I get it right now you're getting 3 different Clover reports on 3 different machines, which none of them indicating full code coverage. Because all of them are generated from the same source code you should copy all code coverage files from every machine (clover.db*) to a dir which contains clover.db file and generate report from within it.
You don't really need to merge anything. Please refer to Marek's comment and link provided by him.
Yes. It's possible to collect coverage data from several machines. In order to merge Clover databases you can use <clover-merge> Ant task, clover2:merge Maven goal or the CloverMerge command line tool.
The question is whether you actually need to perform a database merge. I assume that you have only one application and you just split tests into several sets and run them in parallel on separate machines - each machine is running the same application. Am I correct? If yes, then it should sufficient to copy coverage data files (clover.db*) from all machines into one directory and run report generation.
Please have a look at this manual: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CLOVER/Using+Clover+in+various+environment+configurations
Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
Marek, thanks, I didn't try your suggestion, but I don't think it worked. Here is my scenario based on your link.
And I have about 25 such modules on these three machines. Is there some easy way for this?
