For the information of others, this is resolved in Clover 3.1.3. It was a problem relating to the creation of invalid Java code when instrumenting.

Could you please post the contents of - both the original and the instrumented version found in src-instrumented\test?

I've uploaded the project (pom.xml +

select File->Download Original.

I'm running on a clean Maven 3.0.3/Java 1.7.0 setup. With what I consider is the minimal pom to get the plugin working.

The generated source look fine. But I guess somehow the plugin forgets to set source 1.7


package test;




public class CloverTest {

public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException, IOException {

try (FileInputStream ff = new FileInputStream("foo")) {




Instrumented version here

(Could not press 'comment' if I inserted it directly here)

While JDK is specifically set to 1.7 (<jdk>1.7</jdk>) still experiencing the same issue.

@Sergei: if you're using the latest Clover and still have instrumentation error, it might be related with a source file encoding - see <encoding> parameter for clover2:setup

I'm having the same issue with 3.1.2 and very similar setup. It's interesting to note that the output claims 'processing with source 1.7', but then the compilation seems to change the source type to 1.6. I tried to have a look at the clover2 plugin for Maven, but apparently, it's source has been removed. claims it should be in SVN, but the clover directory ( is empty, and browsing around didn't show anything.

Is Clover actively maintained at all? It's a bit scary that things seem to be so out of date with unanswered questions and links pointing into nowhere.
