Introduction

The exam-maven-plugin can be used to run integration tests on an OSGi framework launched by Pax Exam in server mode, similar to the Cargo Maven Plugin. This plugin has two goals start-test-container and stop-test-container which are bound to the pre-integration-test and post-integration-test phases, respectively.

Thus, you can run your integration tests in the integration-test phase, and the Exam Maven Plugin will take care of starting and stopping the OSGi test container.

The Exam Maven Plugin uses the Forked Container. It requires an OSGi framework to be on the test classpath of your Maven project.

Parameters

configClass

The configClass parameter takes the fully qualified name of a Java class with a @Configuration method, defining the options for the Pax Exam container.

There is an example project in the Pax Exam regression test suite.

Compatibility Note

The current exam-maven-plugin is completely unrelated to and not to be confused with the maven-paxexam-plugin of Pax Exam 1.x. The latter is obsolete, no longer maintained and only works with Pax Exam 1.x and Pax Runner.
