Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1672) Migrate security module to M2
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2006 19:11:14 GMT
Hi Jacek,

This has been an ongoing battle for those of us that use
maven-surefire-plugin in a non-standard configuration.  On the positive
side, I've found the checkout/build/install process quite painless.

I believe (don't quote me on this :) ) that a new release of
maven-surefire-plugin is planned to coincide with the release of Maven
2.0.3 (whenever that actually happens).  Timely releases of Maven 2 plugins
seem to be an issue for many of the projects.

In addition to building from SVN, it's also a good idea to check the JIRA, as there are often patches made available by
contributors that have not made it into SVN.

Thanks Ian as I didn't notice it before. Although it might've added
some additional burden, I think the real issue was with the version of
the maven-surefire-plugin as the stack trace seemed to indicate:

       at java.util.Hashtable.put(
       at java.util.Properties.setProperty(
       at java.lang.System.setProperty(

When I took a look at the failing class the hashtable wasn't
initialized whereas the one that backs up environmentVariables (or
-Properties, I don't remember atm) was. When I built the
maven-surefire-plugin yourself, it started to work fine. I wish the
plugins were published more often.
