Re: [all] maven surefire plugin crashes after JDK updated - solution


This has been discussed in a Debian bug report here:


The bug is not in Debian but is due to the latest release of OpenJDK 8 which improved validation of the class-path in JAR files:

| Improved Validation of Class-Path Attribute in JAR File Manifest (core-libs)
| The JAR file specification states that URLs in the Class-Path manifest attribute must be relative, | though this has not been enforced. To better conform to the JAR specification, absolute URLs | (those that include a scheme) are now ignored. For JAR files not loaded from the file system, | Class-Path entries navigating to a parent directory (using "../") are also ignored.
| Applications depending on a JAR file loaded from an absolute URL element specified in | Class-Path attribute may encounter a ClassNotFoundException. The historical behavior can be | restored by setting a new system property, jdk.net.URLClassPath.disableClassPathURLCheck | to true. Debugging info for Class-Path entries that are ignored can be printed to stderr by
| setting -Djdk.net.URLClassPath.disableClassPathURLCheck=debug.

Any Jar file that uses non-relative URLs in the manifest will suffer from ClassNotFoundException.

This affects the maven-surefire-plugin and under the latest OpenJDK 8 no tests can be run. This is at least true for JUnit 5 tests.

One solution as posted is to ignore the system class loader:


Note however that later in the thread this is stated that it breaks some Spring Boot integration tests. So there may not be a one size fits solution. Either try modifying the configuration to disable the system class loader, or downgrade Open JDK 8 until the surefire plugin is fixed.

Betreff: [all] maven surefire plugin crashes after JDK updated - solution

after I had installed the update of JDK8 i found that the maven surefire
plugin doesn't work correctly.
The resolution is to add following lines in plugins section:
