Subject Re: Beginner needs help: Maven won't run my tests...

Sorry I didn't notice you had responded.  Like most mailing lists, one thing to keep in mind
is we're all doing this for free and at one time or another someone helped us out.  So we're
just returning the favor. 

Anyway, your logs show the line:

> [DEBUG]   (f) testSourceDirectory =
> /home/julien/Documents/donnees/projets/Site emploi
> finance/java/cheetah/web/src/test/java

I see you made many changes like removing spaces and that would have also been my first suggestion.

Now, please run the mvn command with -X again.  There's no need now to send the entire file,
just search through the output for "testSourceDirectory" and make sure you can do "ls /home/julien/Documents/donnees/projets/Site
emploi finance/java/cheetah/web/src/test/java" from the command line, for instance, but using
whatever the new output from that line is.

Also, take a look at the web page for the surefire plugin configuration at
 Note how testSourceDirectory is documented there, along with every other parameter in your
-X output.  Pay close attention to each one, mapping it back to the documentation, then ask
questions about the ones you don't understand and think might be causing problems.

In the worst case, regenerate the project using a project archetype in a second directory
and look how it gets set up there.  

Cheers, Brian
