How does surefire work

Hi all,

We use surefire plug-in in maven. I wonder how it works. Its a wrapper over junit and testng frameworks. It starts these test frameworks and runs test cases. How does it do that?

In my project, I wrote a testng test class. It recognized its a testng test case and ran that automatically.
Can anyone point me to the source code for surefire plugin also.

If I have both Junit and testng test class , what will happen?

Hi Praveen, have you gone to the Maven page for the plugin? You'll find a majority of your answers there.
