Skipping Junit Tests in maven build

When a project is build, Maven runs all the junit tests written for this project by default. But sometime few of them gets failed. But still developer wants to build the project.

For this purpose junit tests can be skipped with -DskipTests command on command line as below.

D:\Project>mvn install -DskipTests

Or -Dmaven.test.skip=true can be used as below on command line.

D:\Project>mvn install -Dmaven.test.skip=true

The difference in both the commands is that skipTests complies the tests and skips running. While maven.test.skip stops both compile and run.

BigInteger to String conversion problem in Java

Issue when converting the BigInteger to String.

Above code was creating an issue as , when the value of macObject.getMACHINECODE() is coming as null,
Then valueOf() method of String was converting its value as null String as "null".

So when machinecode variable is being checked for null, it is getting passed through as the converted value,
was String.

And code was not working as expected.

String machinecode = String.valueOf(macObject.getMACHINECODE());
if (machinecode != null) {
// some code

So the solution is as below,

BigInteger machineCode = macObject.getMACHINECODE());
if(machineCode != null){
machineCode .toString();
// some code
