How to add and use properties files in maven and unit test

1. Following is my pom.xml;

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
  <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
  <groupId>com.mycompany.app</groupId>
  <artifactId>my-app</artifactId>
  <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  <name>my-app</name>
  <url>http://maven.apache.org</url>
  <packaging>jar</packaging>
  <dependencies>
    <dependency>
      <groupId>junit</groupId>
      <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
      <version>3.8.1</version>
      <scope>test</scope>
    </dependency>
  </dependencies>
<build>
  <testResources>
    <testResource>
      <directory>src/test/resources</directory>
      <filtering>true</filtering>
    </testResource>
  </testResources>
</build>
</project>

2. Following is location of files:

[root@vp2-dsk my-app]# ls -al src/test/java/com/mycompany/app/AppTest.java
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1883 Feb  2 13:49 src/test/java/com/mycompany/app/AppTest.java
[root@vp2-dsk my-app]#
[root@vp2-dsk my-app]# ls -al src/test/resources/test.properties
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Feb  2 12:23 src/test/resources/test.properties
[root@vp2-dsk my-app]#


3. In my junit class:
I am referring to my properties files as =>
                InputStream is = AppTest.class.getResourceAsStream("test.properties");
And it fails upon running it as  a junit test case.

4. Also when i try maven test it fails.


Can some one help me how to make it work both from maven  and junit test case

Does the following work for you?

InputStream is = AppTest.class.getResourceAsStream("/test.properties");

Or

InputStream is = AppTest.class.getResourceAsStream("/resources/test.properties");

Open in new window


(difficult to know without knowing your package structure). If neither of those work, please start by posting the result of

[root@vp2-dsk my-app]# find .

Open in new window
