Failing tests that should be passing


We have an installation of TeamCity professional that we're evaluating (among other CI products) and we've ran into a weird build issue. We have an 'ant'-based Java project that compiles and passes all unit tests with flying colors when run from the command line, as well as while using a different CI product. In TeamCity, however, there are 2 tests that are reported as failed, and we're not sure why.

The TeamCity installation is hosted on a Ubuntu Linux system, with a MySQL backend.
We have two build agents, one running on the same Ubuntu system, and another running remotely on a OSX Leopard machine. Both build agents report the same two tests as failed. (as I said, all tests pass just fine when ran from command line, or from within a different CI product)

Below I pasted the output of the two failing tests:


XStreamTest.repositoryXStreamTest (org.meandre.core.engine)
com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.ConversionException: Could not call

Debugging information -

message : Could not call


XStreamTest.coreSerializationTest (org.meandre.core.engine)
junit.framework.AssertionFailedError: This exeception should have not been thrown:com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.ConversionException: Could not call

Debugging information -

message : Could not call

Attached you will find the details of each failed test.

Any idea how to make these tests pass?

Thank you,
Boris Capitanu

Is it possible to send us these tests, jar files and build script required to launch them? You can send them to Right now we cannot say where exactly the problem is.
