Annotation Interface EnabledInNativeImage

@Target({TYPE,METHOD}) @Retention(RUNTIME) @Documented @EnabledIfSystemProperty(named="org.graalvm.nativeimage.imagecode", matches=".+", disabledReason="Not currently executing within a GraalVM native image") @API(status=STABLE, since="5.9.1") public @interface EnabledInNativeImage
@EnabledInNativeImage is used to signal that the annotated test class or test method is only enabled when executing within a GraalVM native image.

When applied at the class level, all test methods within that class will be enabled within a native image.

If a test method is disabled via this annotation, that does not prevent the test class from being instantiated. Rather, it prevents the execution of the test method and method-level lifecycle callbacks such as @BeforeEach methods, @AfterEach methods, and corresponding extension APIs.

This annotation may be used as a meta-annotation in order to create a custom composed annotation that inherits the semantics of this annotation.

Technical Details

JUnit detects whether tests are executing within a GraalVM native image by checking for the presence of the org.graalvm.nativeimage.imagecode system property (see org.graalvm.nativeimage.ImageInfo for details). The GraalVM compiler sets the property to buildtime while compiling a native image; the property is set to runtime while a native image is executing; and the Gradle and Maven plug-ins in the GraalVM Native Build Tools project set the property to agent while executing tests with the GraalVM tracing agent.
