Maven 2 Invoker Plugin

The Invoker Plugin is used to run a set of Maven projects. The plugin can determine whether each project execution is successful, and optionally can verify the output generated from a given project execution.

Goals Overview

The Invoker Plugin has two goals:

  • invoker:install copies the project artifacts into the local repository to prepare the execution of the integration tests.
  • invoker:run runs a set of Maven projects in a directory and verifies the result.


General instructions on how to use the Invoker Plugin can be found on the usage page.
