Maven Surefire can't instantiate my IReporter class on Jenkins

I have a Jenkins project that cannot run due to being unable to instantiate my TestNG IReporter class, CustomReportListener.java (CRL). If I remove all references to it, the project runs just fine, but I am required to return the results via CRL. Lastly, CRL is part of a framework that we include as a JAR, and the test has seemingly no problems using any other class inside that JAR.

Main Error

I’ve tried a lot of approaches, including running it on Jenkins as a freestyle job, and trying out the following Surefire settings, typically one by one:

  • Unable to remove .svn, please close if opened. + Jenkins
  • NoNodeAvailableException elasticsearch in one IntelliJ project but not in other with same programmatic and elasticsearch.yml configuration and code
  • Single login to SSH, share the session to run git-receive-pack and remotely run some other commands
  • Library (jar) dependencies between github repositories
  • Pushing to Git from IntelliJ IDEA gives Permission denied (publickey)
  • How to run maven tests in a specific order?
    • <groupId>org.apache.maven.surefire</groupId>
      <artifactId>surefire-testng</artifactId>
      <version>2.19.1</version>

    • <useSystemClassLoader>false</useSystemClassLoader>
    • <reuseForks>false</reuseForks>

    Replace the line (which fails due to javax.swing.filechooser.FileSystemView)

    public static final String BACKUP_DIRECTORY =
            FileSystemView.getFileSystemView().getHomeDirectory().getAbsolutePath() + "\\Selenium Results\\";
    

    By

    public static final String BACKUP_DIRECTORY =
            System.getProperty("user.home") + "\\Selenium Results\\";
    

    and it should work as expected.

    If your maven is compiling the code properly and .class files are present in target folder. then

    Mention Maven dependancy:

    <dependency>
    <groupId>io.appium</groupId>
    <artifactId>java-client</artifactId>
    <version>2.1.0</version>
    </dependency>
    

    And save the file and re-run, that will solve the problem

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
