      Description

      Maven & surefire has been here for a while but still I'm missing this feature. When my tests fail, I'd like to know exact failure reason.

      1. Surefire summary does not show the stack trace / line number / assertion. Browsing results files in target dir is frustrating & time consuming.
      2. It is impossible to use surefire-report plugin in fully automated way. If I plug report-only goal to phase test, this goal is not executed when phase test fails

      Current workaround in my project is that every maven submodule has a handy batch file with 'mvn surefire-report:report-only'.

      One of the ways of implementing it is adding stacktrace/assertion information in test summary.

      What do you guys think about this idea?
