SequenceOntologyTest mystery solved

My @BeforeClass method didn’t have (alwaysRun = true).

Result: it was not run when restricted to (Groups=“Functional”).

The last comment here

suggests tagging all setup/teardown methods with (e.g.) groups=“config”.

Not sure how different that is from using alwaysRun = true.

Why would you want to not run a setup or teardown method?

I guess for scenarios when you want different setup for different groups of tests.

My numbers for develop “functional” tests: Passed 588, Failed 5, Skipped 3.
