Maven Failsafe Plugin

The Maven Failsafe Plugin is used to run integration tests. The Failsafe Plugin will not fail the build during the integration-test phase, thus enabling the post-integration-test phase to execute.

The Maven lifecycle has four phases for running integration tests:

  • pre-integration-test for setting up the integration test environment.
  • integration-test for running the integration tests.
  • post-integration-test for tearing down the integration test environment.
  • verify for checking the results of the integration tests.

The Failsafe Plugin generates reports in two different file formats:

  • Plain text files (*.txt)
  • XML files (*.xml)

Goals:

  • failsafe:integration-test runs the integration tests of an application.
  • failsafe:verify verifies that the integration tests of an application passed.

Configuration:

1. using testng.xml file: The following configuration will run your tests in parallel in 10 different threads.

<plugins>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-failsafe-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>3.0.0-M4</version>
        <configuration>
          <suiteXmlFiles>
            <suiteXmlFile>testng.xml</suiteXmlFile>
          </suiteXmlFiles>
         <parallel>methods</parallel>
        <threadCount>10</threadCount>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
</plugins>

2. skipping your tests: The following configuration will skip all your tests.

    <build>
        <plugins>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-failsafe-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.0.0-M4</version>
                <configuration>
                    <skipITs>true</skipITs>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>

3. inclusions/exclusions of tests: The following configuration will include and exclude the defined tests.

<build>
   <plugins>
     <plugin>
       <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
       <artifactId>maven-failsafe-plugin</artifactId>
       <version>3.0.0-M4</version>
       <configuration>
         <includes>
           <include>ChromeTest.java</include>
         </includes>
         <excludes>
           <exclude>IETest.java</exclude>
         </excludes>
       </configuration>
     </plugin>
   </plugins>
 </build>
