• Check for duplicate Java / Jakarta EE classes on the classpath. The Duplicate finder Maven plugin checks for duplicate classes in the following packages: javax.validation, javax.servlet, javax.json, javax.mail,, javax.activation, javax.inject, javax.annotation and javax.xml.bind. Projects can disable the check via the <skip>false</skip> configuration property.

  • Start to manage the plugin version for the rewrite-maven-plugin. [BUILD-1007]

  • Ability to set a different Java version for the test compiler by setting the javaVersionForTests property accordingly. [BUILD-1013]

  • Plugin dependency for the rewrite-maven-plugin to magnolia-rewrite-recipes. [BUILD-1014]

  • Surefire: use <systemPropertyVariables> instead of the deprecated <systemProperties> to configure default system properties to pass to Surefire. [BUILD-1075]

  • Jacoco code coverage integration with Maven Surefire and Failsafe plugins. [BUILD-1073]

    To enable code coverage using Jacoco, you can activate the enable-code-coverage profile. Once the profile is activated, the jacoco-maven-plugin will automatically run just before the test and integration-test phases. It configures the surefire and maven plugins with the appropriate -javaagent arguments.

    XML and HTML reports will be generated during the verify phase in the ${project.reporting.outputDirectory}/jacoco folder, which defaults to target/site/jacoco. The XML report is designed to be used by external tools like SonarQube, while the HTML report is useful for developers who want to execute tests locally on their workstation and view the coverage.

    To integrate the Jacoco agent with the surefire and failsafe plugins, additional arguments are required in the plugin’s argLine property. It is recommended that projects avoid overriding the plugin configuration and instead use the new surefire.jvmargs and failsafe.jvmargs properties to specify their extra arguments.


  • Stop managing the maven-pmd-plugin version, unused.
