Annotation Type Ignore

public @interface Ignore

Sometimes you want to temporarily disable a test or a group of tests. Methods annotated with Test that are also annotated with @Ignore will not be executed as tests. Also, you can annotate a class containing test methods with @Ignore and none of the containing tests will be executed. Native JUnit 4 test runners should report the number of ignored tests along with the number of tests that ran and the number of tests that failed.

For example:
    @Ignore @Test public void something() { ...
@Ignore takes an optional default parameter if you want to record why a test is being ignored:
    @Ignore("not ready yet") @Test public void something() { ...
@Ignore can also be applied to the test class:
                @Ignore public class IgnoreMe {
                        @Test public void test1() { ... }
                        @Test public void test2() { ... }
