VM arguments in eclipse

Hi,

My test1JUnit.java has below entry


       final String testFileName = System.getProperty("project.basedir") + "\\src\\main\\resources\\temp\\test.txt";


In order for me make junit to work i have to go to junit run configuration --->arguments--->VM arguments the add

-Dproject.basedir=C:\\TestPOC\\current\\TestPOC


Then it all worked.

test1JUnit.java has is calling TestService.java which also has entry

       final String testFileName = System.getProperty("project.basedir") + "\\src\\main\\resources\\temp\\test.txt";


so fixing below took care inside TestService.java also.
"i have to go to junit run configuration --->arguments--->VM arguments the add

-Dproject.basedir=C:\\TestPOC\\current\\TestPOC"



My question is

"i have to go to junit run configuration --->arguments--->VM arguments the add

-Dproject.basedir=C:\\TestPOC\\current\\TestPOC"

Doing above step is not only fixed for junit test class but also TestService class also?

What is meaning of the VM argument how it fixed in both places?


please advise
Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance
CAn we send different environment property files(dev, qa, prod) using the arguments for maven build?

It fixed for both because as you said, test1JUint.java is calling TestService.java, and so therefore the code in both are running in the same JVM. And system properties are defined across the entire JVM and so that property can be accessed from both location that you are asking about.

Generally speaking, to support different environments (such as dev, qa, and prod) you can use a feature of Maven known as Profiles. Firstly have a read of this...

... and if this looks like what you are after, I can help/guide you further.
