On instrumenting with eclipse plugin with clover v 3.1.4 getting an additional .class file for each .class file


I am trying to instrument my class files using eclipse and using 3.1.4 version.

On compilation I am getting an additional .class files for each .class file got instrumented having the same .class file name with some junk characters. All the files has same content as follows


public class RemoveAttachments$__CLR3_1_4t0gt0gi38uxyzo
public static CoverageRecorder R;

CoverageRecorder _R = null;
try { CloverVersionInfo.An_old_version_of_clover_is_on_your_compilation_classpath___Please_remove___Required_version_is___3_1_4(); if (20120227103243583L != CloverVersionInfo.getBuildStamp()) { Clover.l("[CLOVER] WARNING: The Clover version used in instrumentation does not match the runtime version. You need to run instrumented classes against the same version of Clover that you instrumented with."); Clover.l("[CLOVER] WARNING: Instr=3.1.4#20120227103243583,Runtime=" + CloverVersionInfo.getReleaseNum() + "#" + CloverVersionInfo.getBuildStamp()); } R = Clover.getNullRecorder(); _R = Clover.getNullRecorder(); _R = Clover.getRecorder(new char[] { 'C', ':', '/', 'B', 'a', 'g', 'e', 'e', 's', 'h', '/', 'W', 'o', 'r', 'k', '/', 'P', 'e', 'r', 'f', 'o', 'r', 'c', 'e', '/', 'D', '2', 'D', 'e', 'v', '/', 'D', '2', '/', 'D', '2', 'F', 'S', '/', 'M', 'a', 'i', 'n', '_', 'M', '2', '/', 'D', '2', 'F', 'S', '4', 'D', 'C', 'T', 'M', '-', 'W', 'E', 'B', '/', '.', 'c', 'l', 'o', 'v', 'e', 'r', '/', 'c', 'o', 'v', 'e', 'r', 'a', 'g', 'e', '.', 'd', 'b' }, null, 1417621001508L, 1000L, 37609); } catch (SecurityException e) { System.err.println("[CLOVER] FATAL ERROR: Clover could not be initialised because it has insufficient security privileges. Please consult the Clover documentation on the security policy file changes required. (" + e.getClass() + ":" + e.getMessage() + ")"); } catch (NoClassDefFoundError e) { System.err.println("Your instrumented application could not find the Clover classes necessary to record coverage. Please use the 'Run with Clover' option to correct this. (" + e.getClass() + ":" + e.getMessage() + ")"); } catch (Throwable t) { System.err.println("[CLOVER] FATAL ERROR: Clover could not be initialised because of an unexpected error. (" + t.getClass() + ":" + t.getMessage() + ")"); } R = _R;


please let me know is it an expected behaviour or is there any thing I need to do to avoid this

Yes. This is an expected behaviour. For every top-level class declared in a source file Clover adds one static inner class containing a coverage recorder. Such class is named like "<base class name>$__CLR<clover version><some hash>". This is a reason why you can see about twice as much *.class files in a project compiled with Clover.
