Maven not running Spring Boot tests

I have a rest Spring Boot REST API that I want to test. I can run the tests manually in Eclipse (without maven and by running the application as JUnit test) and it runs fine and displays the results, but mvn test does not "work" as you will find out below.

Here is my POM file:

Here is a segment of my TestController.java class in src/test/java:

@Test
    public void f_findByUsername() {
        // Finding user with username 'user1username'

        given().auth().basic("User1username", "Testpassword").when().get(
                "http://localhost:8080/users/get/ByUsername?username=User1username")
                .then().assertThat().body("username", is("User1username"));
    }

At the top of the TestController class I have these annotations:

@RunWith(SpringJUnit4ClassRunner.class)
@SpringApplicationConfiguration(classes = Application.class)
@WebAppConfiguration
/* Tells the embedded Tomcat server to start on a random, open port */
@IntegrationTest("server.port:0")
@FixMethodOrder(MethodSorters.NAME_ASCENDING)
public class TestController {....}

I'm not sure whats wrong. I don't have the surefire plugin but its looking for that it seems.

The code in the class you named TestController isn't a controller, it's a test, but the convention says that it's a controller (perhaps used in testing). By default, Surefire will be looking for tests matching *Test; rename the class to ControllerTest.


Even if this is not recommended (as not standard), you can configure the maven surefire plugin too, as follows:

<plugins>
    <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
        <configuration>
            <includes>
                <include>**/*Test*.java</include>
            </includes>
        </configuration>
    </plugin>
</plugins>

Edit: Wildcard added before /Test*.java


Another reason this may be happening is to have declared another surefire plugin in your pom. In my case I migrated an app to spring boot and left this in the pom.

    <plugin>
            <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
            <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
            <configuration>
                <testFailureIgnore>false</testFailureIgnore>
                <includes>
                    <include>**/*Test*.java</include>
                </includes>
            </configuration>
            <executions>
                <execution>
                    <phase>clean</phase>
                    <goals>
                        <goal>test</goal>
                    </goals>
                </execution>
            </executions>
        </plugin>

Spring boot test were executed after remove this part from the pom.
