I thought the way JUnit worked was that it used to reflection to find
all Test classes
and test methods and then invoked the test methods (ones that start with
test...). In
that case, if I override TestCase with TestSetup, will JUnit use that or
will it just
grab and run the tests (thus not running the TestSetup.setup() method)?

Has anyone done this? I'd like to find out before I make the decision to
alter my
test suite (as I trying to figure out how to either do this with a
custom Task in Ant
or through the JUnit suite itself).
