Annotation Type Stepwise

public @interface Stepwise
Indicates that a spec's feature methods should be run sequentially in their declared order (even in the presence of a parallel spec runner), always starting from the first method. If a method fails, the remaining methods will be skipped. Feature methods declared in super- and subspecs are not affected.

@Stepwise is useful for specs with (logical) dependencies between methods. In particular, it helps to avoid consecutive errors after a method has failed, which makes it easier to understand what really went wrong.

Note: If this extension is applied on the Specification, then it will use ExecutionMode.SAME_THREAD for the whole Spec.
