Since IIRC maven 2.0.8, -Dmaven.test.skip has been replaced by
Use skipTests (see README.txt).
If you're were still using the maven.test.skip, you 'll now find
out that the build fails on drools-compiler
because drools-compiler has a test-jar dependency on drools-core (as
well as a normal dependency on drools-core).
The skipTests compiles and builds the test-jars (just doesn't run
while maven.test.skip doesn't even compile or build the test-jars
(which is not much faster).
With kind regards,
