I've been seeing (and remember, I've only recently started playing with funsuite), that the
logs go to target/unit.log; edit to go to stdout and they go to stdout -but
they don't go into the surefire logs. That is, the test runner isn't generating the classic
<junit> XML report with its sections of stdout and stderr. While that format has its
limitations, and you can certainly do better (ideally every log level event should be captured;
let you turn them on/off, pull in threads, correlate timestamps across machines, etc, etc),
having Junit & jenkins reports which include all the output logs testcase-by-testcase
is pretty foundational. Maybe there's some way to turn it on that I haven't seen.
