Q: What third-party libraries does Clover utilize?

Clover makes use of the following excellent third-party libraries:

Apache Ant

The Ant build system.


A public domain parser generator.

Apache CommonsA set of reusable Java components.

Apache Velocity

Template engine used for HTML report generation.


A lightweight library for multi-machine communication.

FastUtilA library for high-performance operations on primitive types.


An agile and dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine.

GSONA library converting Java objects into their JSON representation.
GuavaGoogle's core libraries for collections, caching, primitives support, string processing, I/O etc.

iText (2.0.1)

A library for generating PDF documents.

JCommon / JFreeChart

An open source library for generating charts.

JDOMA library for accessing, manipulating, and outputting XML data from Java code.


An open source toolkit for creating interactive data visualizations.

To prevent library version mismatches, all of these libraries have been obfuscated and/or repackaged and included in the Clover JAR. We do this to prevent pain for users who may use different versions of these libraries in their projects.
