See, i.e. -Dsurefire.useFile=false

>                 Key: SUREFIRE-631
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Maven Surefire Plugin
>    Affects Versions: 2.5
>            Reporter: james strachan
> When running tests from the command line (e.g. "mvn test -Dtest=FooTest" actually showing
on the console the summary and stack trace of failures is very useful.
> However many projects have surefire configured in a root pom.xml and often has the default
of useFile=true.
> It would be nice to be able to do something like...
> mvn test -Dtest=foo -DuseFile=false 
> to be able to get a nice output of what the failed exception is and the stack trace etc.
> It might be nice to enable useFile=false when -Dtest= is specified too.
> How about we add a new field which maps to -DuseFile and if its specified then override
the configuration from the pom.xml?
