Annotation Interface BeforeTestExecution

@EventListener annotation used to consume a BeforeTestExecution published by the EventPublishingTestExecutionListener.

This annotation may be used on @EventListener-compliant methods within a Spring test ApplicationContext — for example, on methods in a @Configuration class. A method annotated with this annotation will be invoked as part of the TestExecutionListener.beforeTestExecution(org.springframework.test.context.TestContext) lifecycle.

Event processing can optionally be made conditional via a SpEL expression — for example, @BeforeTestExecution(" matches 'test.*'").

The EventPublishingTestExecutionListener must be registered in order for this annotation to have an effect — for example, via @TestExecutionListeners. Note, however, that the EventPublishingTestExecutionListener is registered by default.
