[GRADLE-3421] Filenames of JUnit test results with non-ASCII characters get too long Created: 30/Mar/16  Updated: 20/Jan/17  Resolved: 20/Jan/17

JUnit test reports are generated in files named using the tests FQCNs.
Class names can contain arbitrary unicode glyphs.
Test reports files names are escaped by replacing all non-ASCII entries by their hexadecimal encoded form. This approach can create very long file names that bump into filesystems limits as seen by the original issue reporter.

See the initial discussion and the corresponding pull-request.

The latter pull-request change the implementation so only disallowed characters are escaped, largely reducing the number of escaped characters hence shortening filenames.

We all agreed that using a blacklist is a risky breaking change.
Closing as Won't Fix

Reopened since the Bug is still present, we only disagreed with the way to fix it.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!
