Re: [tycho-user] skipTests vs. maven.test.skip?

the two switches are there for historical reasons in maven-surefire-plugin.


as tycho-surefire-plugin tries to be compatible/close to maven-surefire-plugin as it evolves, we more or less inherited the two switches in Tycho.

In Tycho, both have the same effect - tests are compiled but not executed.


The tycho site docs may need clarification though wrt compiling tests and running tests.

If I read it looks like the Maven documentation recommends to use skipTests instead of maven.test.skip.


Quote: If you absolutely must, you can also use the maven.test.skip property to skip compiling the tests. 


Anyone aware why using skipTests should be preferred? In our platform build we use maven.test.skip [1].


Best regards, Lars
