        public abstract java.lang.String[] profiles
        The bean definition profiles to activate.

        This attribute may not be used in conjunction with value(), but it may be used instead of value().

      • inheritProfiles

        public abstract boolean inheritProfiles
        Whether or not bean definition profiles from superclasses should be inherited.

        The default value is true, which means that a test class will inherit bean definition profiles defined by a test superclass. Specifically, the bean definition profiles for a test class will be appended to the list of bean definition profiles defined by a test superclass. Thus, subclasses have the option of extending the list of bean definition profiles.

        If inheritProfiles is set to false, the bean definition profiles for the test class will shadow and effectively replace any bean definition profiles defined by a superclass.

        In the following example, the ApplicationContext for BaseTest will be loaded using only the "base" bean definition profile; beans defined in the "extended" profile will therefore not be loaded. In contrast, the ApplicationContext for ExtendedTest will be loaded using the "base" and "extended" bean definition profiles.

         @ActiveProfiles("base")
         @ContextConfiguration
         public class BaseTest {
             // ...
         }
        
         @ActiveProfiles("extended")
         @ContextConfiguration
         public class ExtendedTest extends BaseTest {
             // ...
         }
         

        Note: @ActiveProfiles can be used when loading an ApplicationContext from path-based resource locations or annotated classes.
