>                 Key: SUREFIRE-995
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Junit 4.x support
>    Affects Versions: 2.14.1
>            Reporter: Paul Philion
>            Assignee: Tibor Digana
>             Fix For: 2.18.1
> It looks like when evaluating <groups> and <excludedGroups> using the @Category,
only the test class itself (and not any superclasses) is searched for the annotation.
> It would be very helpful if the search included superclasses.
> Aside: It took me a few hours to track this down. I like to implement abstract superclasses
for all my testing patterns (integration test with full DB vs. "functional test" using stub
DB vs strict unit test with mock objects). Typically, adding the annotation to the superclass
(like @BeforeClass and @AfterClass) to handle standard initialization. However, the @Category
works only in the concrete test class (not an abstract superclass).
> If you need a more concrete example (sample code, etc.), I am happy to provide.
> Right now, the simple work-around is to include @Category in all concrete test classes
where it is important. I'm using it in/exclude integration tests.
