Eclipse updating maven dependencies slow

I have only depicted a tree/fractal because it helps explain the concepts (it is not really like that).

This approach works with recursive build technologies such as Ant, Maven, MSBuild, Rake, and alike.

Historically, teams would give up on making their tests infinitely fast, and use suites or tags to targeting a subset of tests at any one time.

With the creation of suites and tags, a subset of tests can be verbally describable. Tags or suites could allude to business areas of the application, or to technical or tiered groupings.

Defining tags and suites requires expert human design creativity.

At least in order to push towards optimal groupings.

That implied that they could be insufficiently, inexactly, and incorrectly grouped too, which is common enough, even if difficult for humans to determine.

Microsoft has done some extensive work on this approach, but it's also possible for development teams to implement something useful quite cheaply.

Of course, everything that you test pre-integrate should immediately be tested post-integrate in the Continuous Integration (CI) infrastructure.

Even the highest functioning development teams might experience breakages born from timing alone for commits landing in real time.

We then create a deployment pipeline to run slower tests later.
