Skip Test Maven while creating package command


Maven Skip Tests

If you are trying to run the Maven package/install command on console (Terminal) and you want to skip Maven tests, you can make use of the argument -Dmaven.test.skip=true



Example:
% mvn package -Dmaven.test.skip=true

If you want to completely skip unit tests for your project while creating the artifact you can add the below line in your pom.xml

<maven.test.skip>true</maven.test.skip>

Now you do not need to pass the -Dmaven.test.skip=true argument when you run mvn package/install command as maven.test.skip property will skip the compiling of the tests

Note: If you use -DskipTests=false, it will just skip the running tests phase, but the test will be compiled, so if you have any compilation errors, your build might fail.
