Yes, sure. You can do it as follows:

  • Ant: use initstring attribute in <clover-setup/> or <clover-instr/> task
  • Maven: use cloverDatabase parameter for clover2:setup or clover2:instrument goal
  • Eclipse: Project Properties > Clover > Instrumentation tab > InitString box - choose the "Custom value" toggle and disable the "Relative to project dir" checkbox
  • IDEA: File > Settings > Project Settings > Clover > Compilation tab > InitString box - choose the "User specified" toggle and disable the "relative to project directory" checkbox

All settings above are for code instrumentation, so you have to recompile your project after change. If you want change database location at runtime, you have to define the clover.initstring property, for example:

  • java -Dclover.initstring=/path/to/my/clover.db -cp ... com.acme.MyClass

There are also clover.inistring.basedir and clover.initstring.prefix properties available. See Choosing a Location for the Clover Registry.
