Maven. Using dependency from test scope

If you have module A where you have some test classes, and module B where you wish to use this test classes. You need to use some plugin with configured goal, some scope and some type to resolve this.

So, in module A

<project>
  <build>
    <plugins>
     <plugin>
       <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
       <artifactId>maven-jar-plugin</artifactId>
       <version>2.2</version>
       <executions>
         <execution>
           <goals>
             <goal>test-jar</goal>
           </goals>
         </execution>
       </executions>
     </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </build>
</project>


And in module B:
<project>
  ...
  <dependencies>
    <dependency>
      <groupId>com.my.app</groupId>
      <artifactId>module-a</artifactId>
      <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
      <type>test-jar</type>
      <scope>test</scope>
    </dependency>
  </dependencies>
  ...
</project>
