Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-4823) Surefire output lost if tests fail in a multi-module build
Date Sun, 19 Sep 2010 16:50:35 GMT
Surefire output lost if tests fail in a multi-module build

                 Key: MNG-4823
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Logging
    Affects Versions: 3.0-beta-3
            Reporter: Brett Porter

I'm filing this here as it only affects Maven 3, and I'm not sure which solution is preferable,
but expect this to be moved to SUREFIRE.

In a multi-module project, especially with a large number of modules, the reactor summary
will scroll the surefire results out of the window. See also:

One option is to repeat just the "Failed tests" part in the exception. This would require
a change in Surefire. I similarly just added this advice to

However, if others think it might be better to adjust the output (eg, by only showing failed
reactor modules, or making the summary optional) that's another possibility. I think given
parallel builds and fail-at-end reactor options it's best to pursue the former, though.
