Using the Diffblue Cover plugin for IntelliJ at work

Diffblue Cover Community Edition is a free plugin for IntelliJ IDEA that allows you to write unit tests for your Java code. Our plugin can be used on both open source and commercial code.

However, as with any free tool, your employer may restrict how Diffblue Cover Community Edition can be used in your company. To ensure confidence when using Diffblue Cover, Diffblue Cover Developer Edition offers the following additional features:

  • Greater functionality, including the ability to write tests for your entire project
  • Premium Support
  • Indemnification.¬†

What is Indemnification?

Indemnification is a form of insurance compensation that protects your business from any damages or loss that are the result of Diffblue Cover Community Edition. This exempts your business from liability from unforeseen damages. In simple terms, it helps prevent your business from being sued for issues that may arise from using our software or using code provided by Diffblue (for example, protections for resulting intellectual property violations).

If you are using Diffblue Cover Community Edition within your business, we recommend upgrading your plugin to Diffblue Cover Developer Edition.

What is Premium Support?

All Diffblue Cover Community Edition users are welcome to ask questions and receive support in our public Community Forum, which is frequently used by Diffblue customers and our internal team. However, if you wish to receive one-on-one support from Diffblue we recommend upgrading to Diffblue Cover Developer Edition.

If you are using Diffblue Cover Community Edition within your business, we also recommend upgrading your plugin to Diffblue Cover Developer Edition.

Premium support will give you direct access to our team to help ensure you are getting the most out of our service.

How much do Indemnification and Premium Support cost?

Both of these benefits are included with Diffblue Cover Developer Edition. The price is 125 GBP/month per user (calculated in your local currency).
