Announcing Test Distribution for Maven

In Develocity 2020.5 we’ve added the missing piece to our testing product for Maven: Test Distribution (available for Gradle builds since Develocity 2020.2).

We will demonstrate how Test Distribution and Build Caching – with very little effort – reduce the total build time from over 50 minutes to about 15 minutes for a typical code change. We will also discuss potential options for reducing build time even further by optimizing the build for Test Distribution.
