{ xml.enabled = false text.enabled = true }

This will attempt to pass a -text option to FindBugs which it doesn't support. If the text report is enabled, only the outputDir needs to be set as text is the default output.

If you want a use case where this is a problem, here's mine:

I want to run FindBugs for my Android project in Travis-CI.

The output of Travis-CI is:

  • Pass / fail
  • The build log

With the current FindBugs Gradle support, the information that ends up in the build log is:

> FindBugs rule violations were found. See the report at: file:///home/travis/build/walles/exactype/app/build/reports/findbugs/findbugs.xml

Complete example here: https://travis-ci.org/walles/exactype/builds/87751928

This is not very helpful for somebody just reading the build log, especially since the file referenced isn't even accessible after the build is done.

I would prefer if FindBugs could print information in the build log on what exactly it was that went wrong, so that the user can fix the things FindBugs complains about just by reading the build log and nothing else.

One way of achieving this could be to support FindBugs text format output to stdout.
