Adding Terracotta Server into your Maven build

Having servers at development time is pain. You need tooling to make it smooth. Fortunately, Terracotta has the tc-maven plugin for this purpose.

Integration Testing with Maven

To start and stop the server pre and post integration tests, add the following to your pom.xml:

<pluginRepositories> <pluginRepository> <id>terracotta-snapshots</id> <url></url> <releases> <enabled>true</enabled> </releases> <snapshots> <enabled>true</enabled> </snapshots> </pluginRepository> </pluginRepositories>   <plugin> <groupId>org.terracotta.maven.plugins</groupId> <artifactId>tc-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>1.5.1</version> <executions> <execution> <id>run-integration</id> <phase>pre-integration-test</phase> <goals> <goal>run-integration</goal> </goals> </execution> <execution> <id>terminate-integration</id> <phase>post-integration-test</phase> <goals> <goal>terminate-integration</goal> </goals> </execution> </executions> </plugin>

Interactive Use

Interactively, with the pom configured, it is just mvn tc:start to start and mvn tc:stop to stop
