I started experimenting with ScalaTest some days ago tempted by the nice looking Feature Specs over here.

mvn scala:cc is continuously compiling my scala code - I wanted to be able to call something like mvn test -Dtest=MyTest from command line as well as for maven to run all my test suites when building.

This is how:

Install the maven-scalatest-plugin:

git clone git://github.com/teigen/maven-scalatest-plugin.git

cd maven-scalatest-plugin && mvn clean install

Update the pom.xml

Run tests:

mvn test will now exectue all the scala test suites found after building the project. However the build is not really necessary when mvn scala:cc is running at the same time. mvn com.jteigen:maven-scalatest-plugin:1.0-SNAPSHOT:test will only execute the tests.

What if you don't want to run all the suites?

mvn com.jteigen:maven-scalatest-plugin:1.0-SNAPSHOT:test -Dsuite=mypack.MySuite
