>                 Key: SUREFIRE-1365
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SUREFIRE-1365
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Maven Failsafe Plugin, Maven Surefire Plugin
>            Reporter: Darius Cooper
>            Assignee: Tibor Digana
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 3.0
> With 12-factors apps and deployment on platforms like OpenShift, there a new 
> push on using Environment Variables for configuration. When running 
> Integration tests with Failsafe, it would be nice to set the same variables 
> as will be set to the target environment. 
> Often, there's a file that contains the variables in a key-value pair format, 
> just like a properties file. It would be nice to be able to read that same 
> file in while setting environment variables for Failsafe and also when 
> deploying.
> (There may be some type of simple file-formatting differences, but that's 
> typically easy to handle in an automated way.)
> failsafe:integration-test supports an "environmentVariables" parameter. It 
> would nice if it could support an "environmentVariablesFile" parameter that 
> allowed a simple properties-style file to be read in an set as environment 
> variables.
