Annotation Type IfProfileValue


@Documented
@Inherited
@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Target(value={TYPE,METHOD})
public @interface IfProfileValue

Test annotation to indicate that a test is enabled for a specific testing profile or environment. If the configured ProfileValueSource returns a matching value for the provided name, the test will be enabled.

Note: @IfProfileValue can be applied at the class level, the method level, or both. @IfProfileValue at the class level overrides method-level usage of @IfProfileValue for any methods within that class.

Examples: when using SystemProfileValueSource as the ProfileValueSource implementation, you can configure a test method to run only on Java VMs from Sun Microsystems as follows:

 @IfProfileValue(name = "java.vendor", value = "Sun Microsystems Inc.")
 public void testSomething() {
        // ...
 }
 

You can alternatively configure @IfProfileValue with OR semantics for multiple values as follows (assuming a ProfileValueSource has been appropriately configured for the "test-groups" name):

 @IfProfileValue(name = "test-groups", values = { "unit-tests", "integration-tests" })
 public void testWhichRunsForUnitOrIntegrationTestGroups() {
        // ...
 }
