Those test modules may not have a logging implementation in their "test"
scope in Maven. It is simple enough to add a logger to their pom.xml file
and add the logger configuration file to src/test/resources for each of the
affected modules.

Personally I am against the fairly common approach that puts the loggers
into the test scope in the parent pom, instead of just managing the version
there, as it hides the fact that those dependencies are inherited by each
of the children.
