This is a followup to
For a freestyle project with an "Invoke top-level Maven targets" build step and the Xvfb plugin enabled, the DISPLAY environment variable is not set when it already exists in the environment of the slave.
- create a slave with an existing environment variable: DISPLAY=:99
eg. by setting this in the .profile of the slave
- create a freestyle job with the attached config, which basically:
- contains a pom which outputs the DISPLAY environment variable
- creates two buildsteps, a shell which executes mvn and a Maven buildstep doing the same.
I get the correct output (eg. DISPLAY=:1) from the shell build step, and the wrong output (DISPLAY=:99) from the maven buildstep.
BTW, I also tried a Maven Job, and it works there, too. The only problem exists in a maven buildstep in a freestyle job.
