There was a TestReport project on RubyForge, but it’s been pulled or
discontinued. I am looking for some kind of test-reporting tool myself
actually. Reporting starts to get pretty important when you are
dealing with tests written by QA.

If there’s nothing ready, it should not be hard to createa custom
runner/outputter that will write xml.

Have a look at test/unit/ui/console/testrunner.rb how it writes to
console for start.

I have had a look and it’s easy to do. The “hardest” part is to define
xml scheme.
Then use xmlbuilder or anything else, and redefine add_fault (two
types here, errors and failures), started, finished, maybe
test_started and test_finished.

http://caldersphere.rubyforge.org/ produces XML files that are
compatible
with a lot of common CI systems, it may meet your needs.

There is another XML logger, but the name escapes me atm.
