      Description

      Some system properties get clobbered if you set them on the command line. For example,

      mvn clean test -Dtest=LoginTest -Dselenium.user=test32

      The 'test' system property will work, but the 'selenium.user' property will be null at runtime. I have tried:

      • hard coding the system property in the unit test, this worked fine.
      • setting the system properties in the pom file, this worked fine also.
      • tried an older version of the surefire plugin, this worked fine.
