We are Evaluating Clover for code coverage for future puchase and want to use the exclude files option. But it is not working.

I wanted to exclude certain files/packages from getting instrumented in clover.

Used following different entries in build.xml

<clover-setup>
<files>
<patternset>
<exclude name="**/*Utils.java"/>
</patternset>
</files>
</clover-setup>
and
<clover-setup>
<files excludes="com/test/project/web/utils/Utils.java, **/test/project/web/utils/**" />
</clover-setup>

But the file Utils.java and others in the package are still getting instrumented.

Using Cloverfor ant version 3.1.4.

Hi Anuj!

I'm a little late to answer I was just dealing with the same problem that you did. I also use the correct excludes and it was instrumenting every class.

The problem was that I was using ant or antcall, just add to the call the property "inheritrefs" in "true".

&lt;ant target="build" inheritrefs="true" /&gt;

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Gabriel

There is also another way to define:
<clover-setup>
<files>
<exclude name="**/*EmcUtils.java"/>
</files>
</clover-setup>
ALL three versions work correctly. So I guess you must be calling wrong Ant targets (e.g having clover-instrument defined as well).
