Run UI Automation Testing

The flow that I am thinking is that


  1. Check out source code
  2. Install dependencies  - bower
  3. Run the server in the agent (mvn tomcut:run)
  4. Run the Selenium test
  5. Turn off the server

But looking at the mvn tomcut:run, the CI will not stop as it feels like it runs the server on it self and we cannot proceed with the step 4. 


What's the best practice here?

I think mvn tomcat:run will wait for return code in order to pass or fail the build. You can try creating  a .bat and return some code. Even I faced this issue but couldn't work on it.

So based in this code, Does this mean it will just execute the mvn tomcat:run in the background and execute next the exit?

mvn tomcat:run
exit /b 0

I think setting maven.tomcat.fork to true lets you keep executing in maven after starting the tomcat - see
