No. I believe our current setup was derived from example webtest
support in AppFuse, but, I do have a full recent build of webtest
downloaded. So, I will take a look at that and upgrade my build
process accordingly. If the AppFuse example build logic included
report generation, I must have accidentally removed that part when
massaging the setup for my own project.

I do have the XML result file. I'm missing the build logic to do the
XSL transformation. Sounds like I can find an example of ANT build
logic and an XSL stylesheet to do the transformation in the webtest
download directory. I'll check that out.

Thanks for the offer to help, but, I'm certain it is a pilot error
now. I'll take a good look at the sample build setup that is
incorporated in the webtest download and update our own build process
