I have a Gradle build with failing tests, but Gradle does not register the build as failed. However, the build does correctly fail if I remove a specific test case. Why is that?
$ ./gradlew clean check
com.example.FooProgramCliTest > fail FAILED
java.lang.AssertionError at FooProgramCliTest.java:26
1 test completed, 1 failed
Make sure your tests do not inadvertently cause
System.exit(int) to be called. Doing so will prevent Gradle from registering the test failure. See here for an example use case where this could happen.
