Java News from Friday, September 29, 2006

Cenqua has released Clover 1.3.13, a $250 payware unit test coverage tool. Clover modifies the source code to enable it to follow which statements are executed when, and keeps a running count of how many times each statement is executed during the test suite. Any statement that executes zero times is not being tested. I use Clover with Ant, but there are also versions for NetBeans, Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, and Oracle JDeveloper 10g. Clover can generate test coverage reports in XML, HTML, PDF, or via a Swing Viewer. 1.3.13 is a bug fix release. Java 1.2 or later is required.

Mort Bay Consulting has released Jetty 6.0.1, an open source servlet engine that supports version 2.5 of the Java Servlet API and version 2.1 of Java Server Pages. This seems to be a bug fix release. Jetty is published under the Apache 2.0 license.
