Subject [jira] [Created] (HELIX-77) Skip tests in default build or separate unit/integration tests
Date Thu, 28 Mar 2013 16:49:15 GMT
Max Calderoni created HELIX-77:

             Summary: Skip tests in default build or separate unit/integration tests
                 Key: HELIX-77
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HELIX-77
             Project: Apache Helix
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Max Calderoni
            Priority: Minor

A couple of miscellaneous questions about how you require building helix.
Would it be possible to skip tests by default in your pom?

Normally, after cloning sources (for experimenting/browsing), you would do:
mvn clean install
which for helix should take maybe 10-30 seconds.
Because you have tests turned on by default the build takes much much longer (it looks like
there are integration tests in the mix, not only fast unit tests).
I think it would be more usable for people doing 'mvn clean install' rather than the more
mvn clean install -Dmaven.test.skip.exec=true
Attaching a patch that shows what i mean in the pom.

The other related question is about integration tests. The reason why takes so long to build
is maybe because not all tests being run are unit tests.
Sometimes there is no clear distinction between integration and unit tests, but the point
is that the build should be fast, so one way to distinguish, arguably, is that if a test is
slow is not a unit test.
I can show one way of separating unit and integration tests in Maven (Maven does not have
very good support for this, there are different ways to work around it) in a later post to
this. Please let me know if there is any interest in correcting this.
