Run testng test in Git pre-commit hook

How would I write a bash script that will run as a git pre-commit hook to fail if a specific testng test fails? I currently run my testng tests through maven surefire like this:

mvn clean test -Dtest="MyTestName"

    If the pre-commit hook returns non-zero, then the commit is aborted before it even starts. In a bash script, by default the return value of the last command run is the return value of the script. By my understanding mvn clean test should return non-zero on failure, so your script should be as simple as:

    mvn clean test -Dtest="MyTestName"

    Then just name it pre-commit in your .git/hooks/ directory in your repo and run chmod ug+x on it to make sure it can be executed.
