The Open Shift standard Maven build command is
mvn clean package -Popenshift -DskipTests.
Developing my tennis club admin tool (Smash), I used Arquillian for
the integration testing. Following best practices principle that
says that yoou should be able to clone a project to your hard drive,
mvn clean install and it should work, the default Arquillian
profile is to run my Wildfly instances managed. This means that Maven
downloads a Wildfly distribution for every module of the
Building Smash straight off didnät work since the project consists of twenty modules and the download of Wildfly dists depleted the disc space during build.
On my home site I build the entire deployment issuing
mvn clean install -DskipTests -Parq-wildfly-remote. This, of course,
skips testing. Arquillian still downloads the Wildfly dist unless I
arq-wildfly-remote profile, and I needed to do this on OPen
Shift as well.
The sollutio to modify the Maven build command is found in the
.openshift directory of the Git repository. Inside there is the file
.openshift/action_hooks/pre_build_wildfly. This contains the
MAVEN_ARGS environment variable that sets the goals and options of
I changed the file, accordingly to
#!/bin/bash export MAVEN_ARGS="clean package -Popenshift,arq-wildfly-remote -DskipTests"
Which solved my problem.
