I looked at Cobertura quickly (, it seems 
that Clover provides more coverage information regarding the evaluation 
of the conditions (i.e the expression in a "if" statement has been 
evaluated n times true and 0 time false, meaning the behaviour when the 
condition is false is untested).

The report generated by Cobertura looks better than JCoverage though.
