API Usage

ConsoleReporter provides a simple API that accepts an array of strings representing the command line arguments and returns an integer result code. The following fragment illustrates use of the API:

 import com.cenqua.clover.reporters.console.ConsoleReporter;
    String [] cliArgs = { "-l", "method", "-t", "Method Coverage", "-i", "clover.db" };
    int result = ConsoleReporter.mainImpl(cliArgs);
    if (result != 0) {
           // problem during report generation


 java com.cenqua.clover.reporters.console.ConsoleReporter -i clover.db

Read coverage for the Clover database "clover.db", and produce a summary report to the console.

 java com.cenqua.clover.reporters.xml.XMLReporter -l "method" -t "Method Coverage" -i clover.db

Produce the same report as above, but include method-level coverage information, and a report title.
