One of the things that can be quite annoying is the huge amount of output on the console when you are running maven tests. I have been using Gradle in the past, and out of the box you don’t need to look at all this junk.
Luckily I discovered today that it also is possible in Maven:
<plugin> <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId> <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId> <version>2.12</version> <configuration> <redirectTestOutputToFile>true</redirectTestOutputToFile> </configuration> </plugin>
So the thing that needs to be set is the redirectTestOutputToFile property and no more noise on the screen.
