To be honest you shouldn't have any static initializers at all,
including final fields (unless they're really immutable, simple data
types). The reason for this is that static initializers (including
those for final field assignments) are invoked when the class is
initialized and this may be happening outside of the scope of the test
runner. @BeforeClass or class rules are the way to "properly"
initialize before-test-suite things.
