Why doesn't like the "Ant JUnit report watcher" my JUnit-style report?

Hi folks,

our build tool produces a JUnit-style XML test report as part of a Maven2 build. I configured the job to pick up this XML Report. But TeamCity does not like the generated reports. It only says:

[11:14:23]: Ant JUnit report watcher
[11:14:23]: [Ant JUnit report watcher] /[...full path here...]/work/14000bd8d7af6fd3/target/test-output/results/*.XML: no files found

I'm sure that these report files do exist (named "test_export_report.XML" etc.)! I switched verbose output on for the XML Report thing, but it still says nothing more.

How can I figure out what's wrong with the XML report files? Does anybody know what kind of XML the XML Report plugin likes and what not?

Could you post a full build log and example of produced XML report.

Hi Michael, thanks for your reply! Heere are my logs etc.:

XML Report pattern is:

I am sure that XML test reports were generated at:
(I obfuscated our path to the build agent's home directory with letters PATH)
and contains:


  <testsuite errors="0" failures="0" hostname="abc1115" id="1"
    name="1. CSV182 : import of NEW WohnungMiete Objects (/absolute/path/tests/suites/P52_NewCriteria/singletests/wohnungmietetest_csv182_exp_import.xml)"
    package="Importer Regression Tests" tests="1" time="?" timestamp="14.06.2011 14:20:14">
      <property name="MultimediaUpdatesValue" value="0" />
      <property name="GeocodingAttemptsValue" value="2" />
      <property name="GeocodingAttemptsExpected" value="-1" />
      <property name="ImportedRecordsExpected" value="2" />
      <property name="ImportedRecordsValue" value="2" />
      <property name="ChangedObjectsExpected" value="0" />
      <property name="ChangedObjectsValue" value="0" />
      <property name="MultimediaUpdatesExpected" value="0" />

      classname="1. CSV182 : import of NEW WohnungMiete Objects (/absolute/path/tests/suites/P52_NewCriteria/singletests/wohnungmietetest_csv182_exp_import.xml)"
      name="1. CSV182 : import of NEW WohnungMiete Objects (/absolute/path/tests/suites/P52_NewCriteria/singletests/wohnungmietetest_csv182_exp_import.xml)"

The build log starts with:

I can assure you, that I copied the path from the log ([Ant JUnit report watcher] ) and checked that there are my XML files! Does the plugin expect a special name (starting with "TEST-")?

Hello, Wolfram,

Is the report produced during the build?
If it's not the plugin skips it as an out of date. To disable such behaviour you can specify "parseOutOfDate" configuration parameter as true.

Yes, the reports are created during the build. If that was the case - where can I set configuration parameters to the plugin? On the adminstration page of an agent?

Configuration parameters can be provided for a build configuration as described here .
We do not expect extra TEST- or something, so target/test-output/results/*.XML seems to be ok.
Please attach (or send via teamcity-feedback@jetbrains.com with link to this thread) <Build agent home>/logs/teamcity-agent.log with DEBUG level enabled (to enable DEBUG edit <Build agent home>/conf/teamcity-agent-log4j.xml) and full build log.
Thank you!

... so target/test-output/results/*.XML seems to be ok.

But could you please however try:

Thanks, I will send the files to your company's address. I'll come back later to this issue.

Hi folks,

as my co-worker Robert already wrote in http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/TW-17463 we've worked around this issue by generating a lowercase filename extension "xyz.xml" instead od "xyz.XML". So we can close this thread successfully.

Best regards,
