Subject [jira] (SUREFIRE-823) Surefire needs distinct (from failsafe) test skip
Date Sun, 29 Jan 2012 18:42:02 GMT
James Nord created SUREFIRE-823:

             Summary: Surefire needs distinct (from failsafe) test skip
                 Key: SUREFIRE-823
             Project: Maven Surefire
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: James Nord

If you use both surefire and failsafe in the same project there is no way to skip unit tests
but run failsafe tests (as the surefire -DskipTests=true flag is also used by failsafe).

The only way around this is to override the default surefire plugin configuration to change
the skipTets property to use a different property - however this is combersome and the project
may not belong to you (so each time you need to edit the project locally).

It would be beneficial if you could somehow bypass surefire unit tests but still run failsafe
integration tests via the lifecycle.
(ie not using the goals directly as there may be some code gen or other that is needed in
an eralier phase)
