- Install Grails 2.0.4 and set $GRAILS_HOME
- the minimum Grails version required to run the plugin is 2.0.0 (see CloverGrailsPlugin.groovy)
- the compilation and deployment of the plugin is done using 2.0.4 (see application.properties)
- Set JAVA_HOME to JDK 1.6+ (otherwise you'll end up with java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org.codehaus.gant.GantBuilder error)
- Clone the repository from Bitbucket:
This is Mercurial repository, not Git.
Build and test
To build the plugin and to run unit tests type:
To run integration tests:
Install the artefact
By default maven-install and publish-plugin targets are switching environment context to "production" and our CloverGrailsPlugin.groovy has def environment = ["test"] declared. Therefore you have to force switch of environment context by "grails test ...", otherwise a build fails.
- Test it against the enclosed Grails test applications located in /testcases directory.
Update Clover plugin number in <grails>/testcases/<project>/grails-app/conf/BuildConfig.groovy, e.g.:
Switch to proper Grails version - set GRAILS_HOME and PATH variables according to test project's settings.
Change directory to <grails>/testcases/<project_name> and run

Clover Core required (if necessary), e.g.
core.version = 'org.openclover:clover:4.2.0'
- Build the plugin via:
grails test maven-install
- Test it against the enclosed Grails test applications located in /testcases directory
- Create a tag for new version, e.g:
hg tag grails-clover-plugin-4.2.0
and push code changes into Bitbucket:
- Push the plugin to Grails Central via:
grails test publish-plugin --plain-output --verbose
