--------------------------------------------

             Summary: Maven surefire plugin sets systemPropertyVariables too late
                 Key: SUREFIRE-1176
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SUREFIRE-1176
             Project: Maven Surefire
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Maven Surefire Plugin
    Affects Versions: 2.18.1
            Reporter: Mateusz Nowakowski


I have a couple of test which need to be run under specific locale.
It is achieved by this surefire plugin configuration:

Under Java 7 this plugin configuration works:
{code}
<plugin>
	<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
	<artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
	<version>2.18.1</version>
	<configuration>
	 <systemPropertyVariables>
		<user.timezone>America/Chicago</user.timezone>
	 </systemPropertyVariables>
	</configuration>
</plugin>
{code}
but under Java 8 the test sensitive test still uses default system locale and they fail.

Surefire plugin sets system properties too late, because in Java 8, several locale-dependent
variables are set much earlier than in Java 7, e.g. TimeZone.getDefault() and 
properties specified in systemPropertyVariables section don't have influence on tests. 
Workaround for it is setting system properties in argLine section, e.g. <argLine>-Duser.timezone=America/Chicago</argLine>.

Workaround:
{code}
<plugin>
	<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
	<artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
	<version>2.18.1</version>
	<configuration>
		<argLine>-Duser.timezone=America/Chicago</argLine>
	</configuration>
</plugin>
{code}
