Hadoop >> mail # dev >> making a hadoop-common test run if a property is set

Re: making a hadoop-common test run if a property is set
There are some tests like the S3 tests that end with "Test" (e.g.
Jets3tNativeS3FileSystemContractTest) - unlike normal tests which
start with "Test". Only those that start with "Test" are run
automatically (see the surefire configuration in
hadoop-project/pom.xml). You have to run the others manually with "mvn
test -Dtest=...".

The mechanism that Colin describes is probably better though, since
the environment-specific tests can be run as a part of a full test run
by Jenkins if configured appropriately.
