Subject [ANN] Maven Surefire Plugin 2.11 Released
Date Sun, 04 Dec 2011 20:42:47 GMT
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Maven
Surefire Plugin, version 2.11


This release includes the maven-surefire-plugin, which executes the
unit tests of an application, the maven-surefire-report-plugin, which
parses surefire/failsafe test results and renders them to DOXIA
creating the web interface version of the test results, as well as the
maven-failsafe-plugin, which executes the integration tests of an
application.

This version supports JUnit 4.8 @Category annotation, using the
"groups" parameter on the plugin (using the 4.7 provider).

The other new feature in this release are runOrder="failedfirst" and
runOrder="balanced", this last parameter tries to optimize the overall
run-time for parallel test runs.


Users migrating from "classic" JUnit4 to the 4.7 provider to use
categories may want to take note of
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SUREFIRE-798

Users having troubles running with forkMode="never" for 2.9 and 2.10 may
want to take note of
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SUREFIRE-<http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SUREFIRE-798>
801.

Changes to the proposed Surefire API are documented in the API page
http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-surefire-plugin/api.html

This version is marked as the last java 1.4 compatible version, the next
version will
be java 1.5. Surefire can still *fork* all the way down to jdk 1.3 for
JUnit 3.8.1.

<plugin>
  <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
  <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>2.11</version>
</plugin>
