Anyone who thinks that unit testing is boring may be singing a different tune after they give Clover 2.0 a try. Clover shows developers where they can get most bang for their testing buck, allows them to see what each individual test is achieving, and gives invaluable feedback as they make progress.

That’s how Pete Moore, product manager at Atlassian, describes Clover 2, code coverage tool.

    Atlassian Clover 2.0 Spices Up Code Coverage
    Clover offers powerful features to drive testing efficiency and effectiveness
    Atlassian Software Systems today announced Clover 2.0, a new version of the code coverage tool that gives software development teams an unparalleled level of qualitative and quantitative detail about their automated tests. In lay terms, Clover tells engineers precisely what tests get executed by their code and how to build better software.
    Automated testing provides confidence, not just during development but during the ensuing months and years of maintenance. This leads to faster development, less regression, and ultimately happier customers.
    Peter Moore, product manager at Atlassian, explains that Clover 2.0 makes testing more effective and efficient. “Anyone who thinks that unit testing is boring may be singing a different tune after they give Clover 2.0 a try. Clover shows developers where they can get most bang for their testing buck, allows them to see what each individual test is achieving, and gives invaluable feedback as they make progress.”
    “And the visualizations are very pretty to boot,” he added.
    Unique features in Clover 2.0 include:

    • Per test coverage measurement
    • Brilliantly rendered, cross linked, HTML source reports
    • Integrated Eclipse plugin with new treemapping report
    • New coverage clouds and tree maps make great testing visualizations

    Clover was originally developed by Cenqua, a supplier of market-leading software engineering tools. In August 2007, Atlassian acquired Cenqua, including its products Clover, Fisheye, and Crucible. Clover 2.0 is the first major release since the acquisition.
    Over one thousand organisations use Clover today for basic code coverage across many industries including:

    • Finance: BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, E*Trade Financial, VISA
    • Government: Australian Tax Office, US Army, US Treasury, US Veterans Affairs
    • Health: Accelrys, Cochlear, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Roche
    • Technology: Adobe, Cisco, Mercury, Salesforce.com, Microsoft, Yahoo
    • Telecommunications: Avaya, Nokia, Sony Ericsson

    Clover can be connected with Atlassian Bamboo, a continuous integration server, for better automated software testing and continuous builds. A free 30-day evaluation of Clover, or any Atlassian product, can be downloaded at www.atlassian.com. More information including pricing, licensing, and documentation can be found on the Atlassian website.
