|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.

Subject: [tycho-user] skipTests vs. maven.test.skip?
If I read http://maven.apache.org/surefire/maven-surefire-plugin/examples/skipping-test.html 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 .
