Typically, you don't want to do this. Tests should be
independent of each other.  JUnit does not guarantee the
order it will run tests within a Test class, and I don't
think Ant guarantees the order it will run tests.

If you need to run a set of tests in a specific order, you
can construct a test suite by hand in a Java file.  If you
want to be able to run a single test, you can use the
technique in Hatcher and Loughran's book on page 103.

If you're writing tests that depend on ordering, don't.
