Build Maven Project Without Running Unit Tests
How do you build a Maven project without running unit tests?
Currently restructuring some code I have for a Servlet and would like to try it out in my web browser (which means running mvn install to get the .war to upload to Tomcat). I'm fully aware my UNIT tests are failing and I'm fine with that because I will fix it once I have the code the way I want. Can anyone advise?
mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true install
Edit - As pointed by @cetnar in comments. The above commend will skip running and compiling tests. If you want to compile but not run tests use
mvn install -DskipTests
If you are using eclipse there is a "Skip Tests" checkbox on the configuration page.
Run configurations → Maven Build → New → Main tab → Skip Tests
mvn clean install -DskipTests=true
I like short version: mvn clean install -DskipTests
It's work too: mvn clean install -DskipTests=true
If you absolutely must, you can also use the maven.test.skip property to skip compiling the tests. maven.test.skip is honored by Surefire, Failsafe and the Compiler Plugin. mvn clean install -Dmaven.test.skip=true
and you can add config in maven.xml
<project> [...] <build> <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId> <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId> <version>2.16</version> <configuration> <skipTests>true</skipTests> </configuration> </plugin> </plugins> </build> [...] </project>
With Intellij Toggle Skip Test Mode can be used from Maven Projects tab:
mvn clean install -Dskiptests=true
Now, the only difference from the answers above is that the "T" is in lower case.
If you call your classes tests Maven seems to run them automatically, at least they did for me. Rename the classes and Maven will just go through to verification without running them.
