Volkert de Buisonjé commented on SUREFIRE-720:
Thanks for clarifying this. So if this issue is limited to the test class discovery step and the actual tests are still run using the configured JDK toolchain, am I right to conclude that making sure that Maven itself always runs on the latest available JDK (or at least on the most recent JDK version that you have configured in your toolchains.xml) would be a full-proof workaround for this limitation?
Anyway, it might be a good idea to emphasize this current limitation on the documentation, since I couldn't find any info about this on-line when I ran into it.
Also, is there already an improvement issue or feature request in JIRA to fix this specific limitation as part of such a future redesign effort of Maven? Thanks. :)
