      Description

      Instructions currently online, and within the hadoop source tree, appear to be incomplete/obsolete for building the source. I checked 2.5.0 and 2.6.0 .

      with "mvn install -DskipTests" my build fails on multiple hadoop src/test sub-directories with:
      Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:2.5.1:testCompile (default-testCompile)...
      This compile failure may be related to my jdk/jre, but why is my build ("mvn install -DskipTests") compiling these tests?

      The pom.xml files are using the maven-compiler-plugin to compile some of the tests instead of surefire. The maven-compiler-plugin is unaffected by -DskipTests and per maven documentation requires -Dmaven.test.skip instead, which the surefire plugin also obeys.

      Building with
      mvn install -Dmaven.test.skip
      completes in my environment.

      I suggest a "major" rating because of the impact on users of the source tarballs. IMO the build instructions in the tarball and online (e.g. https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/EclipseEnvironment ) should work reliably.
      Thanks!
