Subject RE: junit behavior in ant 1.5 vs 1.3
Date Sat, 22 Feb 2003 01:37:40 GMT

Well, the fact of the matter is, that our tests do. I suspect, lots of
other people do the same thing. Sometimes it is useful. We have tests
that run for a very long time before they finish and looking at the
stdout, while the test is running, is a good way to figure out if they
are making progress or not.

At any rate, taking the stdout and stderr and dumping it inside a CDATA
section doesn't work in the case that the output is xml itself. I'm
merely pointing it out.

Of course this is not the JUnit mailing list and so this is a little off
topic. But I can't
help wondering why your unit tests are writing anything to System.out at
all. Let alone
XML. A unit test should simply report success or failure. If you are
having problems 
verifying your XML, take a look at XMLUnit. Check out

Now back to our regularly scheduled ANT discussions.
