Subject Detect excessive folder path length on Windows?
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2016 14:25:46 GMT
Hi,

Windows as you might know has some problems with long file paths..

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365247%28VS.85%29.aspx#maxpath

And Maven is.. well, very fond of long paths. :)



This can causes issues such as with surefire forked execution and the
Archetype integration test which does an inner maven execution, e.g.

[INFO] [ERROR] Failed to execute goal
org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-surefire-plugin:2.19.1:test
(default-test) on project dummy-taverna-plugin-activity: Execution
default-test of goal
org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-surefire-plugin:2.19.1:t
est failed: The forked VM terminated without properly saying goodbye. VM
crash or System.exit called?
[INFO] [ERROR] Command was cmd.exe /X /C ""C:\Program
Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_51\jre\bin\java" -jar
C:\Users\alson\taverna\apache-taverna-engine-3.1.0-incubating-source-release\apache-taverna-engine-3.1.0-incubating\taverna-activity-archetype\target\test-classes\projects\dummyActivity\project\dummy-taverna-plugin\dummy-taverna-plugin-activity\target\surefire\surefirebooter1896791380795738239.jar

Often moving the checked out source code to say C:\src\  fixes the problem.


Rather than simply disabling all tests on Windows, is there a way we
can detect this situation in advance from a master pom-file?

E.g. some kind of "This project need at least 140 path characters free
on Windows" check - ideally with a suggestion on unpacking the project
at a shorter folder.

Or some kind of <activation> so we can disable those forking tests if
the folder is incompatible?
