withOutAndErr should give you the output in most cases.

Since you are forking the process the output may get buffered inside the
forked VM and if a timeout occurs this forked VM is killed without the
buffer being cleared.  The same is true if the forked VM crashes (runs
out of memory, for example).

To make sure you get all output of your tests into Ant's logging system
as they occur (rather than only to the formatters once a test is
finished) set the task's showOutput attribute to true.
