      Description

      There seems to be more problems with integration tests on Windows, at least on ASF Jenkins. This time it is in the Archetype module. The error message from the failure is:

      Failed to execute goal org.codehaus.mojo:selenium-maven-plugin:2.3:xvfb (xvfb) on project artifact.id-webapp-it: Execution xvfb of goal org.codehaus.mojo:selenium-maven-plugin:2.3:xvfb failed: Execute failed: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "xauth": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

      See https://builds.apache.org/job/TomcatMavenPlugin-mvn3.x-windows/2/org.apache.tomcat.maven$tomcat-maven-archetype/

      From what I can tell by searching on it, it is about running Selenium on a headless Jenkins master/slave. See for instance these links:

      http://jenkins-ci.361315.n4.nabble.com/Setting-up-Hudson-with-the-Selenium-Plugin-td1751742.html
      http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/easy-automated-web-application-testing-with-hudson-and-selenium

      I haven't set up Selenium myself before, so I don't know how to fix that. Perhaps someone else can give hand.
