Rails3 - How to run only specific tests?

To run all tests:

$ rake test

To run only unit tests:

$ rake test:units

To run only functional tests:

$ rake test:functionals

To run only integration tests:

$ rake test:integration

To run only tests in specific file:

$ ruby -Ilib:test test/unit/user_test.rb

Run only specic test:

$ ruby -Ilib:test test/unit/user_test.rb -n test_should_generate_salt

Run only couple of specic tests:

$ ruby -Ilib:test test/unit/user_test.rb -n /.*password.*/

To see executed methods use verbose mode:

$ ruby -Ilib:test test/unit/user_test.rb -n /.*user.*/ -v
