Hi George,

First, does it need to be from the command line, or is just running a
single test enough. If the latter, did you try the ScalaTest Eclipse
plugin?

Hi Bill,

Is there a way to run specific test from the command line using maven ? (I have maven running all test I just want to run a specific one)

Hi Tal,

Yes. Here are some examples:

- run test 'a pending test' in HelloSuite, and all tests in HelloWordSpec:

   mvn test -Dsuites='org.example.
HelloSuite @a pending test, org.example.HelloWordSpec'

 - run all tests in HelloSuite, plus all tests containing 'hello':

   mvn test -Dsuites='org.example.HelloSuite' -Dtests='hello'

 - run all tests in HelloSuite containing 'hello':

   mvn test -Dsuites='org.example.HelloSuite hello'

To access this you'll need to use one of the latest SNAP releases, or wait until tonight or tomorrow when I should have a 2.0.M6 out the door.

Bill

Thanks Bill-- this is very similar to something that I need. In particular I would like to run a suite by a simple pattern. WIll I be able to do?

# Will this run all suites containing the word database?
mvn test -Dsuites=database

Hi Manish,

There's support for globs in the suite names, so you'd probably need to say something like:

mvn test -Dsuites='*database*'

Please give these a try and let me know if they work for you. We did them for a client who seems to be happy, but I haven't tried them myself through Maven.

Hi there, Bill!

Is there a way to run a suite matching certain tags? I think this is available when using the ScalaTest runner or Ant, but I'd love do be able to do this from the command line with maven! :- )

Thanks,

Bill Venners

Hi Kane,

Howdy. I don't use Maven much, but if the -D is maven's way of setting properties, I'd hope you can do this:

mvn test -DtagsToInclude='FastAsLightning'

If you don't mind, give that a try and let me know if it works. If not I would guess that means we did something special just for suites.

Thanks.

Bill

Hey Bill and all,

This sample was posted a long time ago, but I can’t get it to work on my project.

This works to run an entire FooSpec:

mvn scalatest:test -Dtests=Foo 
OR
mvn scalatest:test -Dsuites=“*FooSpec”


But when I try to limit this to a particular scenario within the feature I’m stuck. I’ve tried:

mvn scalatest:test -Dsuites=“*FooSpec Bar”
mvn scalatest:test -Dsuites=“*FooSpec @Bar end of the stick”
mvn scalatest:test -Dsuites=“*FooSpec” -Doptions=“-z Bar”

Unknown lifecycle phase “Bar"

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Lachlan Deck
