      Description

      The documentation for the argLine parameter here indicates "since v2.1" and the description refers to the @

      {argLine} syntax but doesn't mention that you have to be using surefire-maven-plugin v2.17 or greater for that functionality to work. See "SUREFIRE-1047 - Add @{...} property evaluation for the argLine".

      Probably the goal arguments page plus the FAQ page that it links to should be updated with a mention of the minimum required maven-surefire-plugin version.


      I noticed this while experiencing issue "SUREFIRE-1273". Resolution of that issue should have been simple but I was on surefire-maven-plugin v2.12 and the documentation made it appear that @{argLine}

      was supported since v2.1. I needed to upgrade but there wasn't any obvious indication of that.
