There are a number of issues with using TestNG in the 2.2 and 2.3 versio= ns of Surefire, and in particular with more recent versions of TestNG.= =20
Work was originally completed by Jesse Kuhnert to fix a number of the is= sues here: h= ttp://svn.apache.org/viewvc/maven/sandbox/branches/surefire/surefire-collab= oration/. This is currently the best working version, however there are= concerns about whether it will remain stable over future TestNG releases d= ue to the use of internal APIs (it already appears not to work with 5.6).= p>=20
Alex Popescu has completed a number of the changes in a simpler fashion = and is working on: http://= svn.apache.org/viewvc/maven/sandbox/branches/surefire/apopescu/. Many o= f the changes have been merge to trunk already.=20
The plan is to merge all changes to trunk as they are reviewed and keep = that as the central point of development for Surefire 2.4.=20
In conjunction with this, it is clear that Surefire needs a higher level= of testing and documentation itself, so that work is under way for 2.4 in = conjunction with the above to ensure that the functionality remains stable = and changeable over time.=20
What's needed right now if you're contributing:=20
JIRA is currently up to date with the roadmap for Surefire. The large nu= mber of issues in 2.4 are expected to fall out quickly as test coverage inc= reases.
