Why? Doesn't an unsuccessful compile warrant a failure?

The only time I ever use failonerror="false" is to allow
generating the testing report with <junitreport>, so that
the developer can look at the failures in the report, and
I then actually fail the build.

That's it. Everything else that fails should fail the build,
and you should reconsider doing anything different, IMHO. --DD
