How to remote debug test cases

Change the Team city project configuration by adding a -Dmaven.surefire.debug to Maven runner in Additional "Maven command line parameters"

maven.remote.debug.testcases

Now when test cases will be executed by maven surefire plugin, the build will wait for a remote debugging application to pick it up on port 5005 and this for EVERY MODULES
meaning:  If you have 5 Maven modules (= java projects) with test cases maven surefire will request 5 times you to connect with remote debugging to your build server.

Create a Remote Java Application launcher you'll also share in one eclipse project:

maven.remote.debug.launcher

 

Don't forget to remove the -D variable or your daily build may wait for a remote debug connection! or create a special build configuration of your project targeted for debugging purpose.
