  • Have recently upgraded to Java 7 and now intermittently seeing this as the cause of junit failures in the Jenkins test reporting, but according to my build execution logs, all my junit tests pass and I can't find anything to tell me what this IGNORETHIS.xml file is all about. Here is the failure info presented to me by Jenkins when I look at the test failure it says occured.
