You can open this sample inside an IDE using the IntelliJ native importer or Eclipse Buildship.

This sample shows how to aggregate test results across multiple Java subprojects. The test-report-aggregation plugin provides this ability when applied to the distribution project, such as an Android application or WAR subproject.

The project in this example contains three projects: application, list and utilities. All three projects apply the java plugin, and application consumes both list and utilities on its implementation configuration. The application subproject is the final distribution of this software project, and applies test-report-aggregation to perform the test result aggregation.

The Test Report Aggregation plugin does not currently work with the plugin.

plugins {
    id ''
    id 'application'
    id 'test-report-aggregation' (1)

dependencies {
    implementation project(':list')
    implementation project(':utilities')

application {
    mainClass = 'org.gradle.sample.Main'

tasks.named('check') {
    dependsOn tasks.named('testAggregateTestReport', TestReport) (2)
plugins {
    id("test-report-aggregation") (1)

dependencies {

application {

tasks.check {
    dependsOn(tasks.named<TestReport>("testAggregateTestReport")) (2)

The application project requires no additional configuration if the jvm-test-suite plugin is present.

1 Apply the test-report-aggregation plugin
2 Optional: make aggregate test report generation part of the 'check' lifecycle phase

The aggregation logic does not automatically inspect all subprojects for test results. Instead, the direct and transitive project dependencies of the distribution project’s runtime classpath are selected for potential aggregation.

For the default test suite named 'test', no additional configuration is necessary. The aggregated reports and their backing tasks of type TestReport are synthesized based on the test suites existing in the application project. Test suites having identical testType properties will be aggregated.

Running the tests and generate the report:

$ ./gradlew testAggregateTestReport

24 actionable tasks: 24 executed

The aggregated HTML report can now be found under application/build/reports/tests/unit-tests/aggregated-results.
