I am planning to create a test plan where I first build out sources, deploy the artefacts to a server and then run tests on that server.
Since our set-up is already using 3 stages to do this, I would like to keep it that way when I make the step to use Clover.
Reading the documentation it is suggested to do this:
with.clover your.test.target clover.report
How does this factor in with Bamboo Stages?
Do I need to repeat the with.clover for each stage or will that confuse clover?
Assuming that you use Bamboo with Ant build and have following three stages:
I would recommend use of Clover tasks inside your own targets, instead of high-level Clover predefined targets. In such case:
ad 1. Add <clover-setup/> or <clover-instr/> to your build target.
ad 2. Deploy instrumented code and clover.jar to your server.
ad 3. Add <clover-report/> task to your test target, providing license key and clover.initstring as well.
Allright, almost there! I got the instrumentation and tests running as they should, now I am proceeding to get the report generated to be displayed in bamboo.
I added another stage to my plan which will take care of the report generation, very similar to what is configured here http://blogs.atlassian.com/2012/07/bamboo-maven-clover-aggregated-code-coverage.
However, it doesn't seem to be triggered because some of the jobs in the test stage are failing (due to failed tests). Do I understand correctly that I can only have the last stage executed when all previous stages have completed successfully?
This would be quite a restriction since we always have one or two test failing ...
Could I get by this in some way?
Quarantining is a very good idea. Alternatively, you could use a single stage with a job in which the Clover reporting task is put on the list of "Final Tasks" (they are always executed at the end of the build, no matter whether previous tasks has failed or not).
Allright, the clover.xml is produced nicely and sizes around 80MB.
It seems that the Clover plugin is chocking on the size though, it is giving a 'Failed to execute plugin 'Clover Results Collector' with error: GC overhead limit exceeded' line in the build log.
Should I just be generating an HTML report and adding that as artefact? I can imagine that the cheer amount of data might slow down the UI even if it gets processed properly?
I think the idea with using "Final Task" is to - somehow - put the Job that take care of the report generation into the failing stage, not into some additional Final Stage. Not sure if this is feasible at all - it depends on your plan structure (how many 'casual' jobs do you have in the failing stage? more than one?)
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
