JRebel with Gradle

I am working in a Gradle application that I am trying to use JRebel in. I am able to get it to work fine for my standard Gradle runs but I am struggling to get JRebel to work in Gradle tests. I believe the main reason is due to the use of --continuous. This restarts the tests whenever I change some code but still takes 5 minutes to start up. I am hoping to use JRebel to bypass that time. Is there a way to use --continuous to only compile the changes that are made in my tests and run tests without starting the whole test build? Thanks.
