When we execute a Gradle test task in IntelliJ IDEA, the IDE test runner is used. This means we can get a nice overview of all the tests that have run. If a test is successful we get a green light, otherwise, it is red in case of an error, or orange in case of a failure. Gradle also generates a nice HTML report when we run the
test task. It is placed in the directory
build/reports/tests/. IntelliJ IDEA has a button which opens this report when we click on it. The following screenshot shows the button with the tooltip that opens a Gradle test report:
