      Description

      Attempting to run integration tests using maven-failsafe-plugin with -Dmaven.failsafe.debug=false yields the following stacktrace:

      The issue is the "free-floating" false that appears in the command line used to start a new JVM. I've traced down the issue to org.apache.maven.plugin.surefire.AbstractSurefireMojo#getEffectiveDebugForkedProcess where the following code can be found:

              String debugForkedProcess = getDebugForkedProcess();
              if ( "true".equals( debugForkedProcess ) )
              {
                  return "-Xdebug -Xnoagent -Djava.compiler=NONE"
                      + " -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=5005";
              }
              return debugForkedProcess;
      

      ...which is quite..."unexpected" to see that one can pass in a value of true, but not a value of false.

      Please fix with a proper parsing of true/false values for the maven.failsafe.debug property.
