> Allow to configure JVM for tests by referencing a toolchain entry
> -----------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: SUREFIRE-1234
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Gunnar Morling
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 3.0.0-M5
> There is the property "jvm" which allows to specify a specific JVM to run on the tests
through Surefire. This puts in an absolute path into my POM, though, which makes the build
less portable.
> Therefore I propose to allow an alternative option which allows to refer to specific
JDKs configured through toolchains.xml:
> {code}
> <plugin>
>     <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
>     <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
>     <configuration>
>         <toolchain>
>             <jdk>
>                 <version>1.7</version>
>                 <vendor>sun</vendor>
>             </jdk>
>         </toolchains> 
>     </configuration>
> </plugin>
> {code}
> Note that this allows to use a specific toolchain just for tests, independently what's
configured as toolchain for the overall build through the maven-toolchain-plugin. This e.g.
allows to run the build on JDK 8 but run tests on JDK/JRE 7 (which is a frequent requirement
for our projects). Or one could have several Surefire executions, running tests on different
Java versions.
> The toolchain to use should be injectable through a property, so one can easily configure
it, e.g. for specific Jenkins runs: "... -Dsurefire.toolchain=jdk:1.7" or "... -Dsurefire.toolchain=jdk:1.7:sun".
