invoker:run

Full name:

org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-invoker-plugin:3.0.0:run

Description:

Searches for integration test Maven projects, and executes each, collecting a log in the project directory, and outputting the results to the command line.

Attributes:

  • Requires a Maven project to be executed.
  • Requires dependency resolution of artifacts in scope: test.
  • The goal is thread-safe and supports parallel builds.
  • Since version: 1.0.
  • Binds by default to the lifecycle phase: integration-test.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Since Description
addTestClassPath boolean 1.2 A flag whether the test class path of the project under test should be included in the class path of the pre-/post-build scripts. If set to false, the class path of script interpreter consists only of the runtime dependencies of the Maven Invoker Plugin. If set the true, the project's test class path will be prepended to the interpreter class path. Among others, this feature allows the scripts to access utility classes from the test sources of your project.
Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.addTestClassPath.
cloneAllFiles boolean 1.2 Some files are normally excluded when copying the IT projects from the directory specified by the parameter projectsDirectory to the directory given by cloneProjectsTo (e.g. .svn, CVS, *~, etc: see reference for full list). Setting this parameter to true will cause all files to be copied to the cloneProjectsTo directory.
Default value is: false.
cloneClean boolean 1.6 Ensure the cloneProjectsTo directory is not polluted with files from earlier invoker runs.
Default value is: true.
cloneProjectsTo File 1.1 Directory to which projects should be cloned prior to execution. If set to null, each integration test will be run in the directory in which the corresponding IT POM was found. In this case, you most likely want to configure your SCM to ignore target and build.log in the test's base directory.
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/its.
debug boolean 1.0 Whether to show debug statements in the build output.
Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.debug.
disableReports boolean 1.4 A flag to disable the generation of build reports.
Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.disableReports.
encoding String 1.2 The file encoding for the pre-/post-build scripts and the list files for goals and profiles.
Default value is: ${project.build.sourceEncoding}.
User property is: encoding.
environmentVariables Map 1.8 Additional environment variables to set on the command line.
failIfNoProjects Boolean 1.9 Set this to true to cause a failure if there are no projects to invoke.
User property is: invoker.failIfNoProjects.
filterProperties Map 1.3 A list of additional properties which will be used to filter tokens in POMs and goal files.
goals List 1.0 The list of goals to execute on each project. Default value is: package.
ignoreFailures boolean 1.3 A flag controlling whether failures of the sub builds should fail the main build, too. If set to true, the main build will proceed even if one or more sub builds failed.
Default value is: false.
User property is: maven.test.failure.ignore.
invokerPropertiesFile String 1.2 The name of an optional project-specific file that contains properties used to specify settings for an individual Maven invocation.

Default value is: invoker.properties.
User property is: invoker.invokerPropertiesFile.
invokerTest String 1.1 (exclusion since 1.8) A comma separated list of projectname patterns to run. Specify this parameter to run individual tests by file name, overriding the setupIncludes, pomIncludes and pomExcludes parameters. Each pattern you specify here will be used to create an include/exclude pattern formatted like ${projectsDirectory}/pattern. To exclude a test, prefix the pattern with a '!'. So you can just type -Dinvoker.test=SimpleTest,Comp*Test,!Compare* to run builds in ${projectsDirectory}/SimpleTest and ${projectsDirectory}/ComplexTest, but not ${projectsDirectory}/CompareTest
User property is: invoker.test.
javaHome File 1.3 The JAVA_HOME environment variable to use for forked Maven invocations. Defaults to the current Java home directory.
User property is: invoker.javaHome.

User property is: invoker.localRepositoryPath.
mavenExecutable String 1.8 mavenExecutable can either be a file relative to ${maven.home}/bin/ or an absolute file.
User property is: invoker.mavenExecutable.
mavenHome File 1.3 The home directory of the Maven installation to use for the forked builds. Defaults to the current Maven installation.
User property is: invoker.mavenHome.

Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.mergeUserSettings.
noLog boolean 1.0 Suppress logging to the build.log file.
Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.noLog.
parallelThreads int 1.6 number of threads for running tests in parallel. This will be the number of maven forked process in parallel.

User property is: invoker.parallelThreads.
pom File 1.0 A single POM to build, skipping any scanning parameters and behavior.
User property is: invoker.pom.
pomExcludes List 1.0 Exclude patterns for searching the integration test directory. This parameter is meant to be set from the POM. By default, no POM files are excluded. For the convenience of using an include pattern like *, the custom settings file specified by the parameter settingsFile will always be excluded automatically.
pomIncludes List 1.0 Include patterns for searching the integration test directory for projects. This parameter is meant to be set from the POM. If this parameter is not set, the plugin will search for all pom.xml files one directory below projectsDirectory (i.e. */pom.xml).

Starting with version 1.3, mere directories can also be matched by these patterns. For example, the include pattern * will run Maven builds on all immediate sub directories of projectsDirectory, regardless if they contain a pom.xml. This allows to perform builds that need/should not depend on the existence of a POM.
postBuildHookScript String 1.0 Relative path of a cleanup/verification hook script to run after executing the build. This script may be written with either BeanShell or Groovy (since 1.3). If the file extension is omitted (e.g. verify), the plugin searches for the file by trying out the well-known extensions .bsh and .groovy. If this script exists for a particular project but returns any non-null value different from true or throws an exception, the corresponding build is flagged as a failure.
Default value is: postbuild.
User property is: invoker.postBuildHookScript.
preBuildHookScript String 1.0 Relative path of a pre-build hook script to run prior to executing the build. This script may be written with either BeanShell or Groovy (since 1.3). If the file extension is omitted (e.g. prebuild), the plugin searches for the file by trying out the well-known extensions .bsh and .groovy. If this script exists for a particular project but returns any non-null value different from true or throws an exception, the corresponding build is flagged as a failure. In this case, neither Maven nor the post-build hook script will be invoked.
Default value is: prebuild.
User property is: invoker.preBuildHookScript.
profiles List 1.1 List of profile identifiers to explicitly trigger in the build.
projectsDirectory File 1.0 Directory to search for integration tests.
Default value is: ${basedir}/src/it/.
User property is: invoker.projectsDirectory.
properties Map 1.1 Common set of properties to pass in on each project's command line, via -D parameters.
reportsDirectory File 1.4 Base directory where all build reports are written to. Every execution of an integration test will produce an XML file which contains the information about success or failure of that particular build job. The format of the resulting XML file is documented in the given build-job reference.
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/invoker-reports.
User property is: invoker.reportsDirectory.
scriptVariables Map 1.9 Additional variables for use in the hook scripts.
selectorScript String 1.5 Relative path of a selector script to run prior in order to decide if the build should be executed. This script may be written with either BeanShell or Groovy. If the file extension is omitted (e.g. selector), the plugin searches for the file by trying out the well-known extensions .bsh and .groovy. If this script exists for a particular project but returns any non-null value different from true, the corresponding build is flagged as skipped. In this case, none of the pre-build hook script, Maven nor the post-build hook script will be invoked. If this script throws an exception, the corresponding build is flagged as in error, and none of the pre-build hook script, Maven not the post-build hook script will be invoked.
Default value is: selector.
User property is: invoker.selectorScript.
settingsFile File 1.2 Path to an alternate settings.xml to use for Maven invocation with all ITs. Note that the <localRepository> element of this settings file is always ignored, i.e. the path given by the parameter localRepositoryPath is dominant.
User property is: invoker.settingsFile.
setupIncludes List 1.3 Include patterns for searching the projects directory for projects that need to be run before the other projects. This parameter allows to declare projects that perform setup tasks like installing utility artifacts into the local repository. Projects matched by these patterns are implicitly excluded from the scan for ordinary projects. Also, the exclusions defined by the parameter pomExcludes apply to the setup projects, too. Default value is: setup*/pom.xml.
showErrors boolean 1.0 Whether to show errors in the build output.
Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.showErrors.
showVersion boolean 1.4 flag to enable show mvn version used for running its (cli option : -V,--show-version )
Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.showVersion.
skipInvocation boolean 1.1 Flag used to suppress certain invocations. This is useful in tailoring the build using profiles.
Default value is: false.

Default value is: false.
User property is: invoker.streamLogs.
suppressSummaries boolean 1.0 Flag used to suppress the summary output notifying of successes and failures. If set to true, the only indication of the build's success or failure will be the effect it has on the main build (if it fails, the main build should fail as well). If streamLogs is enabled, the sub-build summary will also provide an indication.
Default value is: false.
testPropertiesFile String 1.0 Location of a properties file that defines CLI properties for the test.
Default value is: test.properties.

If streamLogs is enabled, the sub-build summary will also provide an indication.
