      Description

      It is currently not possible to have more than one -P on the same command line. Only the first specified profile is considered.

      So if you do

      mvn -Pmain -Ptest

      only the main profile will be taken into account.

      This may sound enough but it's not when your maven call is wrapped into a batch file. Let's say you have a batch doing the compilation of a given module:

      a.bat
      -------------------------------------
      mvn install -Pmymodule %*
      -------------------------------------

      and you want to pass a special integration tests profile you would do:

      a.bat -Pintegration-tests

      But that won't work since you are not allowed to have two -P.

      To merge them in DOS shell is quite a pain in the ***....
