I have a Maven project that has several submodules. because we have dependencies between some of them, we need to run the build from the parent pom.
Because there are a lot of unit tests the build takes a long time. sometimes we are only modifying a single module but we need to wait for everything to build and run tests.
I have an idea of using git diff to ignore the test in unmodified submodules. I started with a python program and I can get the diff and find the modules with changes.
but this will require a separate program to run and execute mvn.
So I started thinking about doing a plugin for mvn that either extends or is a dependency to
Is this possible can I change the behavior of another mvn plugin. I not familiar with developing mvn plugin. I wanted to get feedback from people with experience on it or find out if there is another solution.
