class Minitest::Test

minitest/excludes.rb extends MiniTest::Unit::TestCase to provide a clean API for excluding certain tests you don't want to run under certain conditions.

For example, in test/test_xyz.rb you have:

class TestXYZ < MiniTest::Unit::TestCase
  def test_good
    # test that passes
  end

  def test_bad
    # test that fails only on jruby
  end
end

For jruby runs, you can add test/excludes/TestXYZ.rb with:

exclude :test_bad, "Uses ObjectSpace" if jruby?

The file is instance_eval'd on TestXYZ so you can call the exclude class method directly. Since it is ruby you can provide any sort of conditions you want to figure out if your tests should be excluded.

TestCase.exclude removes test methods entirely so they don't run setup/teardown at all.

If you want to change where the exclude files are located, you can set the EXCLUDE_DIR environment variable.
