Instead of Ted's approach, it's also useful to use surefire plugin
when you debug tests.
mvn test -Dmaven.surefire.debug -Dtest=TestClassName
This commands accept debugger's attach on 5005 port by default, so you
can attach via eclipse's debugger. Then the test runs and you can use
debugger. I think the source code is needed to be compiled in your
local environment instead of just downloading it from hadoop's
