Several command line options exist that effect the plugin for specific purposes.
The Maven plugin supports launching the test harness enabling a JPDA port using a maven property as shown below:
mvn test -Dbaselinetest.run.debugPort=8000
The suite execution will stop until a debugger connects to it. Once a remote debugger connections, suite execution resumes.
The Maven plugin can disable running tests by skipping them:
mvn test -Dbaselinetest.skip=true
