Tibor Digana commented on SUREFIRE-1309:

I have reopened the issue.
Can you please update the documentation?

> Clarify %regex
> --------------
>                 Key: SUREFIRE-1309
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 2.19.1
>         Environment: Probably any environment
>            Reporter: Sander Verhagen
>            Assignee: Tibor Digana
> It would be good to clarify the {{%regex ...}} feature:
> 1. While it is said to be regular expression, it really is a {{regular expression + ".class"}}
kind of thing. This does not work (while it is proper regex):
> {noformat}.+\.class{noformat} The following works (while it is not proper regex): {noformat}.+.class{noformat}
> 2. Clarify that one is supposed to match slashes between packages and class name, not
periods. The following [current documentation|]
doesn't clarify that by just using "{{.*}}": {noformat}!%regex[pkg.*Slow.*.class]{noformat}
> 3. Clarify what the expectations are in terms of escaping characters
> I just spend literally ten hours figuring out a complex regex, going into TeamCity (which
by itself complicated the troubleshooting for me), and the documentation could have saved
my butt, here.
