OpenClover 4.3.0 Release Notes
Due to a blocker bug
present in version 4.3.0
we strongly recommend upgrading to 4.3.1 or later.
We released: Clover Runtime, Core, Ant, Eclipse, IDEA, Maven, Grails, AspectJ, Hudson and Jenkins.
Java 9 support
You can use the "Java 9" source level setting in OpenClover command line tools,
Ant or Maven as well as in your Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA projects. OpenClover core can also detect use of JDK9
and apply this language level automatically, if not set. The Java grammar parser has been extended
and can parse module-info.java files - there is no need to exclude these files from instrumentation.
Upgrading from OpenClover 4.2.x
The <clover-env> task behaviour has been changed. It no longer adds clover.jar to the system
classpath, as Java 9 is more restrictive regarding classpath manipulation. This in particular affects
Ant integration and <clover-setup> task as well as automatic Ant integration in Hudson, Jenkins and Bamboo.
In order to have them working correctly, you have to add clover.jar
to Ant's classpath.
Clover for Ant
Simply download new Clover-for-Ant zip file and use the clover.jar from it.
Clover for Eclipse
Download new update site ZIP and install in your Eclipse.
Clover for IDEA
IntelliJ IDEA 13 is no longer supported. As announced few months ago, we had to use APIs from IDEA 14
in order to implement JDK9 support, so OpenClover will no longer run in IDEA 13.
Download new plugin JAR and install in your IDEA.
Clover Maven Plugin
Bump version number to 4.3.1 for 'org.openclover:clover-maven-plugin' and 'org.openclover:clover' in
your pom.xml files.
Grails Clover Plugin
Upgrade to version 4.3.1.
Bamboo Clover Plugin
In case you use automatic Clover integration in Bamboo, then you have to switch it to manual one, as
Bamboo is using Atlassian Clover® instead of OpenClover. In case of a Maven task, the manual integration
should define goals similar to the following (the latest version will be picked up automatically):
clean org.openclover:clover-maven-plugin:setup verify org.openclover:clover-maven-plugin:aggregate org.openclover:clover-maven-plugin:clover
Jenkins Clover Plugin
Upgrade to the latest 4.10.0 plugin version.
In this version the 'clover.fullclean' target is no longer called
in a build (see CLOV-736 for details) when automatic
integration is enabled. Add such target if you need this (you can find it in cloverlib.xml inside the
Hudson Clover Plugin
Upgrade to the latest 4.8.0 plugin version.
Gradle Clover Plugin
