Hudson build successful with unit test failures


This is related to another question I asked about trying to fail Hudson on a single unit test failure.

When I run Maven on my build standalone, it fails due to unit test errors (running mvn clean install) but when I run it in Hudson, it says there was an error due to test failure, yet the build still is successful (and marked as unstable). Any thoughts?

Best Solution

What type of Hudson job did you create? I suspect it's the m2 project rather than the freestyle project. In the m2 project, Hudson will actually tweak the way your pom is configured so as to prevent failures and instead mark it as unstable. This was intentional.

Try setting maven.test.failure.ignore=false under the Advanced setting as I believe Hudson automatically sets that to true.
