Maven test-jar and test code reuse
In a multi module Maven project you might want to reuse test-related code (in src/test) across modules.
The recommended way is described here:
You might want to exclude test classes from test-jar, to prevent that they run multiple times. Add this to your maven-jar-plugin definition (right after the <goals>..</goals> section) :
<configuration> <excludes> <exclude>**/*Test.class</exclude> </excludes> </configuration>
This assumes that your test classes and only your test classes are named “…Test”.
