You MIGHT be able to do this in Ant...

The JUnit test results are stored in a particular directory when you
do your builds. You should be able to search for the regular

testsuite errors="0".* tests="0".* time="0"

And, if you find it, fail the buid via the <fail> task. Then
CruiseControl will pick up the build as a failure.

Here's a test I did:

        <concat destfile="combined.test.results">
                <fileset dir="junit-tests"/>
                                <regexp pattern='testsuite
errors="0".* tests="0".* time="0"'/>
        <fail message="JUnit Test Results are bogus">
                        <length file="combined.test.results"
when="greater" length="0"/>
        <echo>DEBUG: Everything is peachy!</echo>

The <concat> combined all the test results into a single file. I tried
doing a loadresource, but it wouldn't take a fileset if there was more
than a single file in that file set.

Anyway, the <concat> concatenates all the test results into a single
file. I use the <filterchain> to filter out all the lines that contain
the regular expression that shows zero errors, tests, and time taken.

Once I've done that, I use the fail to fail the build, but I only fail
on the condition that the combined test results file is not empty. If
all the tests are valid, the file will be empty. If someone has a
bogus test, the file will not be empty.
