Question about JUnitReport task

I am trying to create a report after a junit test is completed.

When I tried to use the JUnitReport task, it is not creating the desired xml that can be use to show the results in a frame format.

I know we need xalan to get JUnit task going. Do I need any thing else so that a meaningful(frames) report is generated??

Could you post the <target>'s you're using to 1) run the tests and 2) generate the report?

it looks like this:

<project name="junittest" default="test" basedir=".">
<target name="test">
<junit printsummary="true" haltonfailure="true">
<formatter type="brief" usefile="true" />
<formatter type="xml" />
<test name="cingcom.estorepost.test.TestXstreamTest" />
</junit>
<junitreport todir="./reports">
<fileset dir="./reports">
<include name="TEST-*.xml"/>
</fileset>
<report format="frames" todir="./reports/html"/>
</junitreport>
</target>
</project>

Also in the ant javadocs it says something like:
"If you want to use Xalan 1.2.2, the noframes report is still supposed to work. If you want the frames support, copy the file junit-frames-xalan1.xsl from the Ant distribution's etc directory to a new directory, change its name to junit-frames.xsl and use the task's styledir attribute to point to it. You will also need a compatible (older) version of Xerces. as well as BSF(bsf.jar). Again, using Xalan 2 is simpler and supported."

The javadoc prescribes to go the route of noframes, which kind of defeates the purpose of creating a decent test report

BTW i am using jdk1.3.1, if that makes any sense.

At least you have a problem where the <junit> task generates test results (TEST-*.xml) into the current directory but you're telling <junitreport> to look for them in a directory named reports.

thanks for the correction.

It works nice and generates a no frames html(when report format selection is noframes).

But if I have report format changed to frames, the output is not very user friendly. Any ideas??

I get the following exception during the frames report generation.

[junitreport] jar:file:/C:/ant/apache-ant-1.6.2/lib/ant-junit.jar!/org/apache/tools/ant/taskdefs/optional/junit/xsl/junit-frames.xsl; Line 107; Column 81; javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: redirect

I got everything figureout by adding styledir attribute to the report task.

check this:
Ant 1.6.2 <junitreport> doesn't work on Java 1.4.1
http://twasink.net/blog/archives/2004/07/ant_162_junitre.html

In a summary, you should at least use JDK 1.4.2

or:
"When the Xalan.jar was copied to j2sdk1.4.1_01\jre\lib\endorsed and the ant script was run the problem went away."
