      Description

      This is related to HARMONY-263. If the "junit" task is used with a "test" child element rather than a "batchtest" child element then there is no information written out to the console to let the tester know how the tests are getting on - the tester just has to wait until the run eventually terminates and the XML or plain text report gets written. This can be a bit disconcerting if the tests run for several minutes.

      The suggested improvement to this is to specify a custom results formatter class in the "formatter" element that generates the required reports but also writes passed/failed/error messages to console as each test completes.

      Patch to follow.

      Best regards,
      George
