Subject [jira] Commented: (MRESOURCES-131) Maven resources plugin does not honour maven.test.skip flag
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 00:58:22 GMT

    [ http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MRESOURCES-131?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=269198#action_269198

Ryan Maki commented on MRESOURCES-131:
--------------------------------------

The biggest problem from not honoring the flag is definitely seen when there are very large
test data files to copy. It can also be a performance problem on certain operating systems
if there are a lot of small files. Even when the tests are skipped these files fill up the
./target and the build never touches them. In one of my builds I can see Maven pause on the
testResources step over and over throughout the lengthy build, even when I'm just running
a quick 'mvn install -Dmaven.test.skip' to get the current artifacts into my local repository
when I've synced changes.

(+1 obviously, many thanks for considering)

>             Project: Maven 2.x Resources Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.3
>            Reporter: Kostis Me
>
> According to the official Maven documention the flag maven.test.skip means that tests
will not be compiled at all.
> If tests are not compiled then there is no need for the resources plugin to copy the
test resources in the output folder.
> This has a dentrimental effect to Maven project with thousands of integration tests that
use a lot of resources (e.g XML files, ZIP files, images.)
> The reason for this is that even if one uses the maven.test.skip flag in order to speed
up the build, the maven resources plugin still takes a lot of time copying the test resources.
> It makes no sense for the plugin to copy the test resource if they are not going to be
used at all (the maven.test.skip flag)
