    Description

      Junit is introducing some interesting new features on Categories in 4.12. @Category will become @Inherited and @ExcludeCategory/@IncludeCategory will accept a class-array instead of just a single class. As we need these urgently we are currently testing with the current snapshot of junit (https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/junit/junit/4.12-SNAPSHOT/). Unfortuneately the version seems to be incompatible.
      All tests are executed always. Regardless of the settings in <groups> or <excludedgroups>. Using 4.11 works fine. I do not know why this happens and therefore cannot provide a patch but I would love to see it fixed. If someone points me at the cause I will happily find a solution.
