Hi Khadeer,

I assume that your test server is located on a different machine than the build machine, am I right?


Steps in general are as follows:

1. You have to deploy your WAR containing instrumented classes. Use your standard procedure to do this.

2. You have to ensure that clover.db file(s) is(are) available on this server too. Just copy them to some location.

3. You have to ensure that these clover.db file(s) will be found by the application. There are several ways to achieve this:

    • you can instrument Clover with an absolute path in 'initstring' and copy clover.db files to the server to the same directory or
    • in case you have only one clover.db file: use -Dclover.initstring=/path/to/clover.db JVM parameter for your server to point to a correct location or
    • in case you have many clover.db files: use a relative path in 'initstring' during instrumentation and use -Dclover.initstring.basedir=/common/path/to/clover/db/files on the server to point to a folder where they are stored

4. After this, run your tests as usual.

5. After tests are finished, copy generated coverage files back to your build workspace and run clover:clover goal to generate reports.
