Subject [jira] [Created] (SUREFIRE-1611) Deprecate skipTests in Failsafe Plugin
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2018 19:40:00 GMT
Tibor Digana created SUREFIRE-1611:

             Summary: Deprecate skipTests in Failsafe Plugin
                 Key: SUREFIRE-1611
             Project: Maven Surefire
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Maven Failsafe Plugin
            Reporter: Tibor Digana
             Fix For: 3.0.0-M3

We had an ambition to add prefixes surefire and failsafe in the old system properties which
do not have them. At the same time we should remove {{skipTests}} from {{maven-failsafe-plugin}}
because this have been associated with unit tests for long and thus {{maven-surefire-plugin}}.
On the other side the {{maven-failsafe-plugin}} has a better property to use {{skipITs}}.
Since the {{skip***}} system properties are so famous and have been used everywhere, we should
not add prefixes for those; otherwise we broke all the world. We can make it with other system
properties. We want to remove deprecated config parameters in the last milestone of {{3.0.0}}.
One more reason to do these unpopular changes is the fact that system properties without prefixes
interfere with other plugins.
