Supported Platform Notes

  1. Since OpenClover 4.5.0 you must use at least Java 1.7 for compilation and runtime. You can download a JRE or JDK for Windows/Linux. On Mac OS X, a JDK is bundled with the operating system. Once a JRE or JDK has been installed, you need to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.

  2. Clover is a pure Java application and should run on any operating system platform provided the requirements for the JRE or JDK are satisfied.
  3. Your Eclipse projects must use the built-in Java Builder for compilation of source code. Clover does not support AspectJ-based projects.
