Ant does this for you already. Use the "haltonfailure" and/or
"haltonerror" options of <junit> to control your desired fail-quick
behaviour. If you want pretty html of failed tests do not abort
<junit> when anything fails, just let <junitreport> finish and
then fail based on the secondary <junit> properties
("failureproperty" and "errorproperty").

Again, the default <junit> and <junitreport> already generate outputs.
Just look in the directory you passed to both tasks. If you setup
<junitreport> to run with failed tests, it shows you all the goods on
failed tests (stdout and stderr and ant environment included).

Compilation errors? Assuming you mean javac/jikes, both these tasks
also happily die (loudly) if they fail. If you use (x)emacs, you
can use something like the JDE environment to interpret compiler
