How Do You Run JUnit Using Ant?

The following answer is suggested by Eric Armstrong:

1. Define any necessary Ant properties:

<property name="src" value="./src" />
<property name="lib" value="./lib" />
<property name="classes" value="./classes" />
<property name="" value=""/>

2. Set up the CLASSPATH to be used by JUnit:

<path id="test.classpath">
  <pathelement location="${classes}" />
  <pathelement location="/path/to/junit.jar" />
  <fileset dir="${lib}">
    <include name="**/*.jar"/>

3. Define the Ant task for running JUnit:

<target name="test">
  <junit fork="yes" haltonfailure="yes">
    <test name="${}" />
    <formatter type="plain" usefile="false" />
    <classpath refid="test.classpath" />
