public abstract class Filter
extends Object

The canonical case of filtering is when you want to run a single test method in a class. Rather than introduce runner API just for that one case, JUnit provides a general filtering mechanism. If you want to filter the tests to be run, extend Filter and apply an instance of your filter to the Request before running it (see JUnitCore.run(Request). Alternatively, apply a Filter to a Runner before running tests (for example, in conjunction with RunWith.
